You order at the counter and find yourself a seat. The atmosphere is coffee shop comfortable. A fairly extensive menu of mainly Cuban influenced selections.

This is a place where you place your order at the counter, then they give you a number and bring you the food; there is no wait staff. The service was fast/good and the food was REALLY good. I ordered a Cuban Joe, which was a sloppy joe. The bread was exceptionally good and the meat very tasty BBQ. The... More

The coffee was good but it took 12 minutes for the server to bring it to our table. Which was nothing compared to the 25 minutes to get our plantain and egg pie served. Half of our table was already finished eating their empanadas (very tasty). Disappointing service.

Love this place. Go for a cup of coffee and a pastry or a full meal, it's all great! Love the vegetarian plate, Cuban sandwich and the empanadas! Even the buttered bread is delicious.

Great Cuban food, coffee, and atmosphere! The food servings here are substantial. You won't go away hungry. Prices are very reasonable too! The interior is inviting making you feel like just hanging out for awhile. Servers are very friendly. Could only be better if it were right on Front Street but then prices would have to up. So...keep it the... More

I absolutely love this place! Great ambiance and friendly staff. The Sal Latte is a definite must. I also love their Ropa Vieja. The empanadas aren't bad either.

We ordered the Cuban Roast Pork (Lechon Asado) and the Saffron Rice & Chicken (arroz Con Pollo), and they were DELICIOUS! Both dishes were so flavourful. And we had coconut flan for dessert, and again DELICIOUS! Wish we have another stomach so that we can order more food. When we are back in this area, we'll definitely be coming back... More

Stopped in to eat here, first time for Cuban food. This is a relaxed place where you order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Beer and wine available. This is good food, I recommend the Cuban Pork sandwich, and others in my party complimented the Cuban sandwiches. The empanadas are different than those from Mexico,... More
