I picked up the Cafe menu and noticed "Ultimate Cuban Sandwich with Columbus pork loin, rosemary ham, pulled pork, pickles, Dijon mustard and Swiss cheese." $7.50. Great price, extra ingredient, Has any one had one?

    Enjoyed the sandwich. Cubano? Paninied soft bread with nice crust, not hard, thin slice pork loin from a roll, slices of ham and a scattering of pulled pork, sliced dill pickle, Swiss cheese and mustard The one I saw on the Miami segment of TV show had thicker pork, maybe more cheese and pickle and no pulled pork. Still a nice lunch and even better when the computer charged $6.95 inside of price on the menu. Chips and 2 spears of sweeter pickle on the side.

      We must have been there at the same time today, but I had what turns out to be one of the best hamburgers in town. Hand-formed patty, cooked in the wood oven, it has a nice char-broiled crust and is juicy at about the four-napkin level. It comes with a slathering of aioli, which brings to mind the garlic burger at Eccolo. Highly recommended at $7.50.

        The menu describes it as 8 oz. on a toasted sponge bun at $6.95. What the computer giveth, the computer taketh away.
