A hidden treasure! We already had eaten lunch but saw this on Yelp and had to stop. Legit! Who would have known you can get Cuban food in the mountains of North Carolina. If you've never had tostones, just do it. These crispy fried green plantains are perfect. The mojito sauce at this little joint is super garlicky and should come in a larger container, there can never be enough. What a delicious stop!!

Great sandwiches. I had the Brisket

Best authentic Cuban food outside of Florida!

Love everything I have ordered here. Great entrees and specials and my wife always gets the Tres Leches and Cafe con Leche.


This is a great little place on the backstreet in WJ. It can get pretty busy, but the food is worth it!

Awesome Cuban coffee and wonderful, friendly owners and wait staff! A true gem hiding right down town West Jefferson!

I love the classic Cuban sandwich. My husband usually has the black beans and rice. The owner is friendly as is the staff. One of my favorite places!

I've had very little Cuban food in my life. We have eaten here twice in the last week and we live over an hour away. Sure we had to make a trip to West Jefferson but we could not refuse visiting this establishment again. The food is fresh and delicious. Service great. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed.

They have a good menu and great specials, its nice to be exposed to food from different cultures, especially cuban cuisine. It is so very tasty. We are very excited to have them in the area and hope to see more mom and pop cafes such as this in the area. Try them out and get ready to tantalize your taste buds!
