Lonely Planet review

This is a self-described ‘Latino social cafe’ that is a popular and sophisticated spot in the heart of the 2nd Ave scene. The lengthy food menu offers lots of chicken and beef dishes with Cuban sauces; although, if you’ve spent time in Latin America you’ll know right away the taste is not quite authentic. Still, for the Free State, it’s pretty decent. In a semi-open-air, thatched-roof building, the vibe is Caribbean meets Victorian safari – think old school chandeliers, ornate, gold-threaded couches and hookahs.
