Stumbled upon this place. Doesn’t look like much on the outside but food is delicious and people are friendly. Sandwiches are huge, beef stew is hardy. Must try the different Cuban sodas. If we ever come back, will visit this place again.

This is where the locals eat breakfast and lunch. It is good food, reasonably priced. The Omelette with Spanish sausage is mighty fine.
