This is an unassuming restaurant tucked away on the oldest street in St Augustine. Once inside, the ambiance is great with interesting colored glass above the door and some really pleasing artwork.

This place was recommended by a local as having the best cuban sandwiches in town. Imagine our dismay when the server announced as we were ordering, that they had sold out of all their bread, so no sandwiches of any kind were available. What we ordered was good - but we were disappointed that we couldn't order what we came... More

A very small restaurant in Old Town but away most of the crowds with a Cuban themed menu serving breakfast and lunch items. Sandwiches are tasty and the service is friendly and good.

Friendly place away from the main touristy area of St Augustine. Its still in old town but not in the overly crowded area. Awesome traditional cuban food. If you are looking for authentic this is the place!

This place was nice. My husband had the cuban that was very delicious. I had the cilantro chicken wrap with black beans and rice and it was excellent.

Thank Faustin2
