“What a pleasant surprise!!”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

While staying in downtown Miami prior to leaving for a cruise, we came upon this small corner restaurant while searching for breakfast. A bit unsure at first, we asked a family that was exiting as we approached for a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" and they all said it was very good. So, after venturing in and finding a table, we sat down and received immediate service. The menu had a very good mixture of "local" and traditional choices. What we ordered and received was, with a doubt, the best value, service and quality of breakfast food that we can EVER recall. We would highly recommend checking this place out !

“Great Cuban Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed January 28, 2008

Small, out of the way place, but the Cuban food is excellent. A lot of locals eat here. Not fancy or elegant, small and crowded, reminds me of restaurants in Cuba.
This is not a tourist place, but the excellent food is worth you seeking it out. Breakfasts are recommended, and please try the daily specials.

Thank TallahasseeMark
