We were in town again for a short visit and enjoy the sandwiches and salads so much that we ate there three times, always having a half sandwich and a small salad. All of the food was excellent as was the hibiscus drink.

I need to spend more time at this tiny Cafe. Very few tables, most of their business is take out. Fresh and wholesome, yet simple food. Leaves you feeling full but not bloated. Friendly service, authentic cuisine. I had the quinoa salad with chicken soup....More

We had a great lunch in CDA at Cafe Carambola. Their Cubana sandwich is pulled pork like you've never had it, and their watermelon ceviche special was awesome too. Really glad to have found it. Good owners too!

Unless they have a private room somewhere, or they're catering offsite, there wouldn't be enough room. Plus, I don't think it's formal enough for something that important.
