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

    Thi place is AMAZING for brunch! From the Cuban-style coffee drinks (try the Cortadito!) to the Ropa Vieja and fried plantains, to the home made guava jam, to the service, to the rustic atmosphere

    The ceviche is amazing: light and tasty and refreshing. Try it with plantains!

    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.

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

    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 :-)

    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.

    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.

    Cuban scrambler with an English muffin and a side of bacon. Heaven.
