“Fun and Friendly”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Always good food and they make their own deserts which are very tasty
Often have to wait but its always worth it.
Outside seating has heat but i would rather sit inside except for summer nites
Great coffee I would go out of my way just for this

“Domino cake just might be the best dessert in Portland”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

There are lots of good dishes here. You should try the empanadas and the croquetas, Don't go without trying the domino cake. Truly exceptional.

“Great Cuban food!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I've eaten Cuban food in Cuba, and I've eaten Cuban food at Pambiche, and they are equally wonderful. Pambiche has really authentic Cuban food with great flavor and good prices (they even have a plata comunista, rice and beans). And their desserts are off the chart delicious. People sometimes come here just for dessert and coffee, but I highly recommend a meal. You won't find good, authentic Cuban food like this anywhere else.

“Beautiful and good food too.”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

I love the building that Pambiche is in. The colors and bike parking. We finaly had dinner there. The Sangria was a nice starter, and every dish we ordered was very tasty. Then we came back for breakfast. Have to get the breakfast roll basket. It is a busy friendly place with good food.

“Excellent Cuban food”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

The combination of flavors is incredible and the atmosphere adds to the pleasure of the choices on the menu. From the appetizers to the platos the choices offer some great combinations of flavors and tastes that are rich and intersting and uniquely theirs. The place is very popular and small so there is often a waiting list during the dinner hour and on weekends but it is well worth the wait. They mark their items as vegan and gluten free so if you have dietary restrictions they can accomodate you easily.
