Doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside they're making all sorts of delicious dishes. They had a great selection of dishes, but we only wanted a "snack" so we ordered a couple empanadas for the kids and shared a Cuban sandwich (love that they slice it in half the long way!) Key lime pie was great, Cuban coffee hit the spot, and nice selection of sodas. It's basically counter service with a few pub tables for eating in -- don't expect fancy, but expect great food at reasonable prices!

This place had spectacular food. So good that we visited twice during our 4 day stay in South Beach. It is very small and not the nicest to look at, so don't expect fine dining. I am reviewing this only on the food quality, and it was fantastic. I had the Cuban sandwich twice, and my wife had the fried fish, white rice, and platanos. We both had Cuban coffees. We will be back again next time we visit S Beach.

Food lovers! Beware! This is a place that you can't miss if you are in South Beach! Being at walking distance from the beach, this place gives you the rare opportunity to taste some genuine Cuban dishes! With the recommendation of a friend, I've been here twice. It's a decent place if you're looking to grab something to eat at a more than decent price, a great alternate to the Ocean Drive patios.

Visited while in town for a wedding, i could not leave without getting a Cubano Sandwich and well i must say they did not disappoint. Yes they are cash only and they only speak spanish but don't let that hold you back. There was a gentleman there who could speak some english. This didn't matter to me i speak spanish. They have an outside patio and inside seating too even though it is all open air, it is still a treat to watch everything at hand. The woman made our sandwiches and they tasted amazing! I didn't like how they cut the sandwich the long way, but that is personal preference. Definitely a must try if your looking for a Cubano sandwich in south beach, you will not be let down, might i add the pricing was great, $6.50 for a sandwich, cant beat that!

This little corner café is easy to miss if you don't know if it's existence. Situated in a back street out of the way of the usual touristic neighborhood , las Olas is crowded with locals young and old, purchasing a strong "cuppa" and sipping it with the tiny cups, the Cuban way.
Snacks and juices too for a casual eat on the run , and here you have it , a fabulous stop over not to be missed.
