Stopped by for some sangria while walking the streets of St. Augustine. Sat outside and enjoyed a carafe in the shade with a nice breeze. Very friendly staff. We will definitely come back again.

A hidden gem in St. Augustine on Aviles Street. Had the best Cuban sandwich I have ever had. Good bottle of ice cold Modelo to go with it. Reasonably priced meal. Can't beat that...
