This is a VERY small cafe and the line was long but it was worth the wait. The Cuban was excellent and my husband's rueben was good as well. I would avoid getting the sweet tea as it was too sweet and had a funny taste. While you wait, you can browse around the shop.

Stopped here on a recent trip and was very happy with the Reuben sandwich they had to offer. The service was good and if in the area I would visit again

A great place for lunch! Even though we stopped in after closing, the owner graciously offered to make us anything we wanted. We chose a Cuban for ny husbabd and a Rueben for me. Both were excellent. My husband even commented on how tasty the bread is.

Really great Reubin!! The Cuban was good too. Ice cream was delicious. This is not "haute cuisine" but the food is tastie and the service is friendly and fast.

This is a place we look forward to, for taking a break from a grind on I-75. It's a bit off the road but more than worth finding for a quick bite or poking through a couple of nearby stores under the hanging moss, instead of baking at a highway rest stop. The sandwiches bring us back, year after year.... More

Decent menu but the key is the service. Very nice people. We sat outside and had the salad, ham and cheese and the Ruben. Good portion and very fresh. The big trees made it comfortable, lots of seating. Some neat shops nearby which draw lots of visitors.

Neat place to eat in a quaint setting; my wife and I really enjoyed the Cuban sandwiches. Better than back home in Tampa. We will be back again.
