I read some reviews of Caribbean Sweetness, and just had to give it a go. It's just a little hole in the wall from the front, so much so that I drove right past it the first time. There is more parking in the back, but not much in the front. Inside, the atmosphere is great, and the owner was... More

The sandwiches we have had at Caribbean Sweetness have been full of lfavor and consistently good. Service is good. People were friendly. Not a large place but a great place to try a Cubano!

The BEST Picadillo , beans and rice, and plantains I've had since Hialeah! Even house-made habanero sauce. Don't miss it for lunch!

I've been to this restaurant numerous times and finally decided to write a review. I love this restaurant for the authentic Cuban food as well as the relaxed experience for lunch or dinner. It's also a great value. Large portions of food for the cost. There's indoor and outdoor dining, service good, and food delicious. My favorite dish is the... More

We were traveling from Florida to Tennessee after a two night stay in South Carolina and after 3 days of the same types of food we were seeking something different and with substance. We took a 14 mile detour from our waypoint destination of Asheville based on the reviews we had read on Trip Advisor. We are glad to say... More

I stopped in for a quick lunch with a business associate and ordered the Cuban Sandwich and plantains. This reminded me so much of the Cuban sandwiches I enjoyed on trips to Miami. Very, very delicious. This is a small, cozy, unassuming type of place and the decor fits right in with the menu. It's a small menu but they... More

This place is certainly the best place to eat in Spartanburg. We tried as many different dishes as we could and liked everything served to us. Be brave enough to try anything on the menu. You will not be disappointed.
