We live in the general area, but had not stumbled upon this great restaurant before. It has a quaint atmosphere, extremely pleasant staff (family owned and operated,) and great inexpensive food. We both had one of the house specialties, desert, and beverages. With a generous tip for excellent service, our bill was $38. I can't wait to bring friends and visit again!

My wife and I are all ways in search of restaurant that is pet friendly. La Herencia Cafe has both out door seating so you can sit with your pet and great food, and to add to it they are super friendly. It gets better soon they will be expanding the side walk in front of the restaurant for even more out door seating. Wow awesome is that?

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident just walking through the historic district and what a find! Nice little family operation, authentic Cuban food and atmosphere. I had the Cuban sandwich and my wife had the black beans and rice, both were excellent and highly recommended. This seems to be a popular place with the locals which is also a good sign. Good food, good service, good value, good atmosphere, good music....it's all good!.

This small Cuban Cuisine Restaurant not only was deliciious but the owners made us feel like family. They were very accomadating even though we arrived near closing time. The menu had something for everyone. We truly enjoyed ourselves and will be back.

A return visit to La Herencia with some out of town guests. Was able to snag the last table for 4 in the small cafe. Cuban sandwich and the black beans & rice is my favorite and was ordered by all the others as well with the exception of young one ordering a burger. Service was a bit slow, but quality of the food is worth it.
Only issue that we had was that shortly after being seated 2 of the ladies in the party started getting watery eyes. Didn't notice any particular odor but some type of irritant was definately in the air. My eyes would suffer a little sting from time to time, but others were suffering. Noticed that a couple of the other guests kept wiping their eyes as well. Mentioned it to the owner and she indicated that this was the first comment about it.
