The food was great. Good portions and good prices. We have found a gold mine and will be eating here every time we come to Gainesville.

“Tasty food every time”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

The cafe' is tucked into a small shopping center on the SW corner of 34th Street and University Ave. and doesn't have the easiest access, but it's worth the effort. Food is wonderful here. Big portions and reasonable prices. It's a popular lunch spot and might even be full at 3 p.m. on a Saturday. Fried tostones are great, so are the pork chunks. And the breaded chicken, and the Ropa Viejo, and the Cuban sandwiches, and the beans and rice. It's all good! Mi Apa has patio seating by the parking lot and a drive-through take-out window, too. Only drawback: plastic forks, knives and spoons!

“Some of the best Spanish food in Gainesville!”
Reviewed 1 April 2012 via mobile

We love the arepas, particularly the colombian ones, but they all are good. I would also recommend the lechon asado or arroz con pollo. Whatever your choice you can't go wrong!
