We had a great lunch in CDA at Cafe Carambola. Their Cubana sandwich is pulled pork like you've never had it, and their watermelon ceviche special was awesome too. Really glad to have found it. Good owners too!

First time here today and I must say that this place lives up to its reputation. I had a sandwich and a bowl of soup. Both were some of the best I've ever had. The only negative with this places is the hours. They are...More

Unless they have a private room somewhere, or they're catering offsite, there wouldn't be enough room. Plus, I don't think it's formal enough for something that important.
