    This is a must go for MPLS breakfast. Authentic Cuban cuisine including Cuban coffees, toast, and so much more. The fried yuca cubes w/mojo sauce are as good as it gets. Put that sh!t on everything!

    Early birds get the worm! Get up and get your grub or bring a book and prepare to wait. Bring a jacket for the Spring/Summer if you think the air conditioner will ruin the mood.

    This place is a "top five" for me in Minneapolis. Incredible food. Friendly and helpful staff. What makes this place truly special is the atmosphere. It's a small building with a big personality.

    The Rules: 2.5 plates per person, minimum. At least one plate at the table must have a mango pancake on it. The Dia y Noche never fails. Guava jam, cuban toast & mimosas are mandatory.

    Worth the wait in line for brunch! The mango mimosas are amazing! Only complaint is how cold bathrooms are in the winter.

    Everything is Good! If you get "THE" Cuban dessert(cream cheese, Guava shells, Cuban crackers..ask for a butter knife to spread the cream cheese and cut the cracker :-)

    Everything here is amazing. Even though I live nowhere by it anymore I make a point to drive out. My boyfriend liked his Cuban sandwich so much he got up and hugged the chef.

    Cuban hash, eggs over easy with Cuban toast and guava jam may be the best breakfast in the Twin Cities.

    Always get the Cuban toast. Always get a mimosa (any will do), and you can't go wrong with the the sweet plantain omelette for brunch.

    The Ropa Viejo is awesome. Save just enough room to share some Cascos de Guayaba con Queso Crema before you go.

    Bay of Pigs is not like their Cubana sandwich, it is pork in mojo on bread. Nothing else, just in case you take what the menu describes the wrong way. Tastey food.
