Went here for lunch and discovered the best Cuban sandwiches!!! This place offers a variety of samplings of Cuban cuisine. I was highly impressed with the affordable, delectable food. A great place for a quick bite to eat with friends. Would highly recommend this cafe and the wonderful Cuban sandwiches served there.

Love this place! Great food at a very reasonable price. You have to try the papa rellena. This has become my favorite lunch spot.

Been here many times, and it never disappoints. Love the Cuban sandwiches, black beans and rice, and plantains (maduras). One if my favorite "hole in the walls."

So glad we did. Great red beans and rice and sandwich. The strawberry cheesecake ice cream was the best I've ever had. We'll be going back!

Great Cuban sandwich but also other Cuban selections. The ice cream shop next door is a great dessert option as well
