When we arrived at about 10 am on a weekday morning during Christmas time, we were seated relatively quickly. When we left an hour later, people were lined up waiting for tables. All with good reason. Great American breakfast with a Cuban flair. Wait staff friendly; great eggs, pancakes and hash browns; the best cafe con leche I'd had in a long time and let's not forget those incredible hash browns. Definitely worth a visit if you're staying on Collins Avenue or nearby in North Miami.

This place has changed so much and although the service was ok, the quality of the kitchen was really poor. The steak sandwich(pan con bistec) was so over seasoned it tasted like steak Oregan-atta.
The chicharron de Pollo was a deep fried roasted chicken that tasted nothing like it was supposed to. The tostones were and the rice and beans (Morro) were ok. When I complain to the manager he said "everyone makes it different" That is not true. He also threw out an expletive as we walked out of his restaurant.

This place has good Cuban food. We ordered the vaca frita and it was delicious.
Also the bread they bring you as an appetizer was super fresh and very tasty.
Our waitress was very nice, friendly and did a great job of taking care of all our needs. We were a party of 4 adults and 5 kids and they were very accommodating.
They also had a nice live band playing while we were dining.
Definitely recommend it!

Thank Itza love

The Coffee Con Lache is exceptionally delicious as well as the Coffee Cubano. Their desserts and fried plantain are really good too.
