    Classic institution of Cuba Street. Fantastic coffee, great food. Be prepared to wait, it can get crowded at peak times. Try the snickers milkshake!

    eggs bene are great. Cafe appears a little chaotic at peak times but staff remain friendly and composed. And in the Cuba Quarter cafes are busy for a reason - they are a cut above their competitors

    The Cubana was super tasty and fries were amazing. Don't forget to ask for the chilli pepper sauce if there isn't any on your table!

    Best decision Chili Cheeseburger & a Snickers Shake. Sounds strange but it was so good. Great service. Nice place with cuban flagged outdoor seating.

    Fantastic vibe. Solid coffee and great brunch. Sit in the courtyard if you can, but beware, the roof is leaking some places when it's raining heavily.

    Outdoor seating area is cozy. Mushroom feta quesadilla was fantastic. And I've lived in Phoenix, AZ ;)

    Fidel’s is packed and very busy! I hear they do good food but we only tried a couple of cakes from their LARGE selection. Hot choc is average.

    Can be a bit of a wait if busy, but otherwise worth it. Try the snickers milk shake, it brings all the boys to the yard!

    Add a poached egg to the vegan breakfast plate for the perfect healthy (and slightly wrong) start! So good

    Their Cajan Chicken wrap is amazing. Coffee is very good. Large coffees are bowl sized so watch out.
