“Nice little cafe”

Best Cuban sandwich I've ever had, but I live in Minnesota so what do I know. This is a neat little café tucked away in a small office park near Cleveland and Big Pine Way. Within quick walking distance of the Homewood Suites and Crowne Plaza hotels. Can't wait to get back there for the Sandwich Cubano. Fantastic.

Great home cooked meal. Good prices, good portions, and great food. We had the grilled chicken and roasted pork with rice, black beans and sweet plantains. Our check came to $21 and we even took leftovers home for lunch the next day.

They have lots of choices of entrees and sides...Ropa Vija, Arroz con Pollo, Cuban Sandwiches etc. So much to choose from that it was hard to settle on one thing.

The cafe is located in the back corner of the plaza. The inside is bigger than it looks from the outside. Lots of tables and even counter service. We saw several orders to-go and they were busy but very attentive to the customers.

Best Cuban in area. Definitely going to make this a regular place to take the kids.

Tucked away in a corner,a little hard to find, but well worth the effort. Excellent food and a very friendly upbeat staff make it a great place to eat. Probably the best Cuban food on this side of the river. Try it and you will come back again, guaranteed.

I go there pretty regularly; it's the best Cuban food I've ever had; and I eat Cuban every chance I get. Certainly the best Cuban on the Gulf Coast. The atmosphere is "mom & pop". The service is good, if somewhat slow -- they need more waitstaff at lunch; one poor lady is doing it all! My favorite dish is the Friday Lunch Special -- Chilindron de Chivo. Technically this is "goat stew", but in reality it's sort of an Osso Bucco of goat shoulder -- falling off the bone, melt in your mouth, sllllooowww braised meat in a wonderful tomato-y but not spicy gravy that is to die for! Every other dish I've had there has been great as well!
