I'm from Miami Florida and can tell you they have authentic Cuban and Pernil sandwiches. Also the fried yuca and tostones are also awesome. You won't be disappointed.

Guava Tree café specializes in Latin American (e. g., Cuban) sandwiches. They're really tasty. But it's a small, tight place -- so best to plan on eating outdoors or taking your order with you.

We had excellent authentic Cuban sandwiches in a quirky environment. Would definitely return when in Albuquerque. The staff was helpful, but I wish my Spanish was better. The yucca fries were quite delicious.

A great little spot to taste authentic flavors of the Caribbean, Central and South America, made from scratch daily. Share, meet new people, and talk Spanish to the friendly staff. Take it home, call in from work, and come back. Repeat!
