As of June 1, 2014, they have closed after losing their lease. They are hoping to find a new location but it could be awhile. The neighborhood is sorry to see them close.

Great little place with cute atmosphere and very good food in the heart of Bucktown. Try the Cuban nachos made from plantains. Delicious.

Excellent food and service! You feel like you are in Cuba. Try the Cuban Nachos. Staff is very friendly and does a great job. The sangria is wonderful. It's their own special recipe. Yumm!

Cafe LaGuardia is a great little restaurant that has great personality and charm. From the friendly greeting, and being seated by "Mamma", it was a good experience. The Oxtail Soup was delicious albeit a bit salty, but a great experience. The service was average on...More
