I stopped here for a Cuban Espresso Coffee after lunch. It was absolutely delightful. I wish this type coffee was available in more parts of the United States. Yes, they have Espresso, but it's just not the same. Excellent coffee, excellent service.

Food is great, I've been going there for years for my last visit was horrible. Both of us order a carne asada and took a while to get it. Once it arrived it looked like they literally cut the mean in half and gave each of us half and half. Small amount of meat. Spoke to the men in charge... More

We live in Southwest Florida and every chance we get we take the ride down to Miami just for the Pupusas here. My husband is Salvadoreño and we truly miss the great cuisine here. Best place ever! They get to know you and never forget you. There is something to be said about great service and even better food.

We are staying around the corner for a workshop and even if this looks kind of run down, in fact it is very clean and the food is interesting. We had cook camarones in a red sauce, which were excellent. We'll come back!

My husband and I took a ride over to Miami from the west coast of Florida, we decided to see what little Havana has to offer for lunch. After looking at a few places we walked into this quaint little restaurant. We sat at the counter and were greeted by the friendly staff, since we only speak very little spanish... More
