Exactly what we wanted: authentic sandwiches free of the tourist-trap vibe. I did the medianoche, my boyfriend did the cubano. They were excellent! Service was friendly and fast.

Cute little place beside Tower theatre, with a strong 60s feeling! I loved everything about it! This was the first time I ate on the counter! Try the banana chips!

We got a cubano especiale and it was $8. It was not the typical cuban sandwich where they press it between a panini press sandwich presser so it wasn't flat. It was very bready. It had a lot of meat and it was good otherwise.

Every single thing we tried we loved. We were full and just continued to eat more. Then, topped it off with a delicious cuban coffee to go. Best ending to our day in Miami/South Beach.

Dropped in on a Big Bus tour. Food and service were very good. Fair price and free wifi. Outside is a take away coffee that I think is part of the restaurant. What a great coffee at 0.75 USD in the land of Starbucks...
