The only issue I have with finding a coveted Cubano shop in this area is that they do not serve colada! Let alone that they don't open until lunch!

I went to this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend and because I am a huge fan of Cuban food. Sadly, I was very disappointed with the service and the food. There was only one server and we waited for almost 10 minutes just...More
