Stopped by just down the street from our bed and breakfast for lunch at this tiny little place. Nice selection of Cuban sandwiches and entrees. Sandwich was excellent and yuca fries were tasty, although the serving of fries was very small. Soft drinks are in cans only so no free refills. Value was ok as it was about $12 each... More

I enjoyed a wonderful (and very filling) breakfast. A tortilla filled with eggs, potatoes, peppers, onions and cheese. Plantains and salsa on the side added a hint of sweetness. What a meal in a beautiful old world atmosphere. Stopped by again the following day for a couple of Cuban sandwiches to take on the road. These were delicious as well.... More

We ate a Cuban breakfast and drank awesome coffee. It's fun to try new things and experience new surroundings. Our waiter was very prompt and helpful in explaining some of the details around our food choices.

We went here twice, once on the St. Augustine History & Food Tour, then our friends came in town and we took them here. The food is great and everybody who spoke to us or waited on us was professional. Everything is made to order. The Cuban sandwich & chicken pesto sandwich is awesome. Thank you

Downtown isn't always worth the parking hassle in St Augustine for breakfast with this exception...La Harencia Cafe on Aviles st. All day breakfast. Get the guajillo. Amazing flavor combination with huge portions! The people are friendly and it was a completely fabulous brunch. It's small and popular so come early and have breakfast on the sidewalk tables. But don't miss... More

The atmosphere is charming. One can sit outside and enjoy a lucious meal while hearing the clip clops of horse and buggies on cobblestone. I had my usual of roast pork with a wonderful sauce, black beans and rice. My sister had the chicken and my brother-in-law had the ropa vieja. (He is Cuban and said it was authentic) Also... More

Was truly disappointed. The place although small and quaint had a let's just say, not so clean element about it. Especially the bathroom. It was quite gross! The food was for its price, a let down. $15 for a thin piece of steak, 2 (I think) scrambled eggs, and home fries/roasted potatoes that looked and tasted as if they were... More
