Authentic and delicious!
Fresh, authentic, and delicious food! Best meal we’ve had at Fernandina Beach! Had the Cuban sandwich. Pork was pulled and soooo tasty! Bread was fresh baked. Also had black beans and rice. Fantastic!! Wish we had tried it earlier in the week so we could come back again! Definitely will next time we visit here!
Great food, friendly service at a reasonable price. Cuban sandwich and plantain fries are terrific. I enjoyed the Cuban black tea also. Servers couldn’t have been any friendlier or more helpful.
Perfecto! Everything was so good! Cuban sandwich, Yuca fries, and an iced Rebe (iced espresso, almond milk, brown sugar. The iced black tea was also exceptional with the star anise! And the staff….all very friendly and helpful with their suggestions. Can’t wait to come back.
My husband and I tried this new place today. The food is great! Order at the counter when you go in and then take your table number to a table in the pleasant airy dining room. I ordered an egg, ham and cheese on Cuban bread, but since I am vegetarian they graciously substituted chopped tomato instead of the ham. We split a vegetarian empanada (stuffed with rice, black beans and plantain) which came out quickly and was yummy. My husband tried their classic Cuban sandwich which he declared the best he's had in quite a while. Our food came out in short order, hot and delicious. The cafecito was smooth, sweet and wonderful (could have been hotter). The Cuban iced tea (chamomile and anise) was delicious as well. Great service, pleasant helpful staff. Save room for dessert! There's a small bakery counter to the right of the dining room where you can order to go and baked goods.
Delicious, Friendly Service
A great breakfast/lunch place. Delicious Cuban options for food and drinks. The owners and staff are wonderful. As an added bonus, a small bakery of their tasty treats.
