Third time here, food is always excellent. Came for Brunch with my wife to meet a friend from out of town. He had the awesome and already reviewed Cuban Eggs Benedict and nearly cleaned his plate (it's huge and rich). My wife had the combo...More

Thanks for the great review! I guess the fried chicken is not for you though, we are getting a very good response from other customers. Thanks again for all of your support! :)

Absolutely delicious food and excellent service. I had the Picadillo. I loved it. Gobbled it right up. The flan was delicious for dessert too. I will definitely be going back.

Honestly, this is the best Cuban I have ever had in my life. I like to dip mine in the house made hollandaise. You could also order the Cuban eggs benedict for the hollendaise. The location is just like a wonderful little restaurant in any...More

After two luncheon visits, this little place, while very well-intended just fails to perform with really quality Cuban cuisine. Moreover, most of the servings come out the kitchen cold or lukewarm at best. A far superior Cuban sandwich can be had just down the street...More

Nice little restaurant, full of locals. My friend and I went for lunch and both got the Cubano sandwiches. They were excellent. We each took half of our sandwiches home with us. The place is small and parking is limited, but worth the effort.

The food comes from the owners mother who came her from Cuba more than 50 years ago. Opened only 6 months ago it already has a following. I actually watched as one customers licked his plate that had the delicious Flam. Easy parking

The limited menu is only because they just opened. The menu is growing. Old school Cuban Food the way abuela used to make.

Went for lunch today, after reading great reviews, and was NOT disappointed!! There are a few places in Santa Fe that serve a Classic Cubano sandwich, but this was one of the best. Rob, one of the owners, pulled up a chair and explained everything...More
