We came across this place after jumping on a bus from Miami beach to escape the rain. After riding the bus for half an hour we got off to find a bar/restaurant and saw this unassuming place with a couple of guys playing dominoes outside....More

Great service and food! Staff was friendly and we were seated quickly. I recommend you order a cortadaito, better than Starbucks!

Found this place on tripadvisor and had to try it out. Great staff, nice server and an incredible assortment of traditional Cuban food. Tried the chicken with mushroom gravy which was excellent. Followed up with flan and it was as good as I have had...More

Excellent Cuban coffee and breakfast, and a very reasonable price. I haven't tried lunch here but they do have regular specials featuring Cuban cuisine.

Had a great meal here. Seating available outside and they also have a bar. Service was pretty quick considering how busy they were

I have never made a reservation and have never had to wait. I guess it depends on what time you wanted to go.
