Black beans and rice, and the Cuban sandwich are to die for! Small place, the owners are super nice, very neat inside!

My favorite place in town to get a Cuban sandwich. Are usually get the small but to share we got a medium thick and hearty and we always get an extra sauce. Cost on a medium with two sides $10.

My wife and I eat here at least once a week. The food is delicious, the people are friendly, and the service is excellent. They've never messed up an order, that I can think of. Their sandwiches are packed full, but they are well assembled so the meat doesn't fall out easily. Their sides are unique and delicious, and they... More

Some items on limited menu were not available. Made meal not anything I care for. Interesting décor, small parking area and cleanliness in question.

We've been curious about this place for a while and finally had some friends convince to give it a try. It's a humble little place, that you wouldn't think to give much notice too based on the appearance, but we keep seeing the reviews and finally decided to stop in. It's all around excellent. You got your staples such as... More

Before you make a decision about whether or not you like Cuban food, check this place out. Red beans and rice, fried rice & meat ball things, and most importantly the Pressed Cuban sandwich. Not fancy at all, but I'll choose great food over fancy silverware all day long. Just wow.

We live in a neighboring city and were passing through to go on a trip. I'd heard from a lot of people on my local foodie Blog that this was a place to visit. We went into this little hole in the wall looking restaurant and found a true blessing! I've never eaten authentic Cuban food before but this food... More

I have been coming to aroma cafe for years. It is a divey little place that has really good Cuban food. I always try to come here when I'm in town visiting family. They have limited options due to the area they are located and catering to the area. But the Cuba sandwich and pork or chicken platter are really... More
