Small, unassuming, but dont be fooled. Its the real deal. Picadillo was great, pulled pork was great, mojo was great, maduros were excellent. You get the idea. Go.

After being bitterly disappointed that the Jamaican place we wanted to try was out of virtually everything we wanted to try at 4:30 in the afternoon, I remembered passing by this little cafe that was attached to an ice cream shop.

We had read reviews about this restaurant. It was outstanding. We arrived and ordered our meal to go and there was a line out the door when we left. Great sandwiches.
