Cuban food in the heart of Little Havana

A local institution since the 1970s, El Exquisito is an unassuming Cuban café that serves delectable, authentic Cuban favorites, including a great cubano (a grilled Cuban sandwich layered with ham, garlic-citrus-marinated slow-roasted pork, Swiss cheese, and pickles) and succulent yuca with garlic sauce.

For Cuban empanadas lovers, this restaurant serves the best ones - flaky and soft on the exterior. El Exquisito adapts its uses to suit the local palate, concocting very mild hot sauce that is more sweet than spicy.

Prices are absolutely reasonable for the quality of the food. The atmosphere is welcoming and casual.
