Coffee was great, I had a mocha and spouse had con leche. I had chorizo omelette which was delicious and spouse had steak torta, very good. Both of our sides of potatoes were cold which was disappointing. Probably wouldn't go back, but enjoyed atmosphere.

My husband and sons have been going to Cafe Con Leche on a regular basis for the better part of the year. I finally got a chance to meet them there for brunch and it was DELICIOUS. The service was good - very attentive servers. They regularly circled to ensure our water glasses were filled. I ordered the skirt steak,... More

Never had a Jibarito before and it was great. Estimated wait was 30 minutes on a Sunday but then ended up only 10 for a party of 3.

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.

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
