Business is closed and the building is for sale. This is sad since it was one of the best places to eat in Townsend. We had to find another place to eat.

Visited here with hopes of getting some good Cuban food. The taste was good, somewhat stingy on the meat for the sandwich. The tastes were fine just was hoping for something a bit more.

I liked the atmosphere, but the food not so much. I had the Cuban sandwich and the ham croquettes. the ham croquettes tasted like they were microwaved and from a box. The Cuban sandwich was extremely bitter and the meat seemed old.
