Some combos worked better than others, my friend Sue and I agreed after breakfast at this bright little restaurant. Ingredients did mingle well in my Cubana benedict ($6.50), poached eggs and chorizo over toasted Cuban bread with chipotle hollandaise sauce. However, a side of yuca with mojo ($3), boiled, with roast garlic, olive oil, lime, and parsley, left me craving the straightforward fried version (with or without chicharron).
Good Cuban sandwich ($7.50), said Sue, and good maduros ($2), but the mango salsa that accompanied those sweet plaintains clashed in flavor as well as color. Coconut rice pudding with dried fruit (of some sort, as shown at bottom; $3.50) and café Cubano ($2.50 or so) were good.
