Our son’s art studio is up the street and he suggested this place. It is outstanding Cuban based food. I had the Pollo Asada sandwich. I loved it. They also serve various types of Cuban coffee. This is a definite do again.

I absolutely love Bodega. I love the atmosphere, sitting outside on the street to eat and the staff who are always friendly and aim to please. I always have my favourite Pollo Asado sandwich and it never disappoints. Great spot. Great prices and excellent food.

Cuban sandwiches are the best. Great bread and always fresh and hot. Quite a variety of dishes on the menu. Outside seating a plus but also have inside seating. Good for lunch or dinner

Located in the cool Edge District. This started out as a real Bodega and has expanded into a resturaunt. The food is traditional of Central American style.

The place is known for the best Cuban sandwich in St. Pete but the smoothies may be the best thing. Great healthy fresh smoothies made in front of you.

Why go here when there are other better Cuban places in the area ? Small servings, nickle and dime you for everything (inc. Bread w a Meal), Some servers have major Attitude, Plus Overpriced ? No thanks.
