Living up to its namesake in the coffee department, this cute little spot offers a great spin on traditional Cuban/Latin fare. Brisk professional service at the table makes this the perfect place to treat you palate to something different for breakfast & lunch.

I went to cafe con leche for Father's Day. It was a busy Sunday. The food was good, without been extraordinary, I had the chilaquiles verdes and my companion had a torta. The service was good, the bus boy was excellent. We seat on the patio, which is fenced and is comfortable. I have the food just a "good" rating... More

During our visit in Chicago we stayed in Logan Square where this awesome little breakfast/ lunch spot had everything we could want first thing in the morning! The coffee was awesome and the food was delicious and pricing is great as well especially if you are on a budget. They stay open late for drinks which was a bonus all... More

We were staying nearby at Longman & Eagle for a couple days and wanted to go elsewhere for breakfast (we've eaten brunch at L&E often, and had already planned on doing so the next day, so we wanted another option) A quick online search of places nearby brought this up, it was a short walk away. Nice, bright atmosphere. Cafe... More

We were taken here by friends. Wow! wonderful Cuban food. I have never eaten Cuban so I did not know what to expect. Lots of coriander, lime etc. The restaurant had a lovely buzzy atmosphere with lots of young people eating there. Our friends eat there once a week at least. Good parking around the back. The staff were friendly... More

This restaurant was recommended by my friends cousin and it was fantastic. Not only was there a wide variety of breakfast foods, but they also have liquor, so Kahlua and coffee made brunch even better. Never once did we feel rushed to be done, and everyone was nice. I will more than likely go back next time I'm in Chicago,... More

Went with a pair of friends for breakfast, though it was lunchtime. Sunday afternoon and the place was packed. There wasn't an inch of space to be had, and though usually that bugs the crap outta me, I didn't seem to mind too much. Staff was friendly and took our name while we waited at the bar for a table...
