    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!

    A unique spot in Minneapolis serving amazing authentic Cuban cuisine. Meant for small group but a must hit spot! I got Cuban hash with side of plantains & fresh mango juice - I will be back often

    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.

    Superb Cuban sandwiches, they use top quality bread, the pork is tender and full of flavor. Black beans and plantains are the perfect accompaniment. Excellent drinks and service.

    Dia y noche or Eggs Havana are superb. Guava cream empanadas - not always available, but unbelievable when they are. One of my very favorite restaurants in the state!

    Was pleasantly surprised to find a great Cuban place in Minneapolis -- their Cubano is definitely on par with those at famous Cuban restaurants in Miami or NYC.

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

    The sweet plantain omelette, the Cuban sandwich, the fricasse de pollo... pretty much everything I tried was delicious. I wish there was a location in Saint Paul.

    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.

    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 :-)

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

    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.

    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.
