La Cubana: The owner of Delux is bringing Cuban Snacks to Roncy

So excited! There's even going to be a take-out window for doughnuts. Does it get better than this?!

  1. Donuts AND coffee...mmm...and they (Delux) have good coffee. Have you ever had their french toast (with bananas, dulce de leche, whipped cream and maple syrup) off their brunch menu, kwass? OMG - it's spectacular. Gotta put that on one of your sweet treat tours.

      No I haven't. But it's now going to the top of my list! Thanks pp!

        Sweeeet! Let me know what you think. I find it swoon-worthy.

        1. re: peppermint pate

          I absolutely will! I think I'm going to go the weekend after labour day weekend :)

        Hi pp. I took your advice and went to Delux this morning for the french toast. All I can say is thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!

        OMG it was so good!! In general, I prefer a thicker cut french toast. But this was sublime! Like you said, the combination of bananas, dulce de leche, maple syrup and whipped cream, was sublime. I'm ashamed to admit that I actually took a spoon, once I had finished the french toast, and ate whatever sauce was left on my plate ;)

          Ah, just saw this now - so glad you loved it! Agree with the general preference for a thicker bread but the flavour combination here is so, so good, it just works. Really like their breakfast sandwich as well.

          1. Read they were making an appearance @Polish Fest.

            Has it opened up yet?

              I haven't heard anything yet, so I'm going to go with no for now. But don't quote me on it ;)

            2. La Cubana is now open, walked by earlier this evening. Regular menu from 11am until "late". Also has a brunch menu. Very bright decor and music seems fairly loud. Anybody been?

                Wow! Thanks for letting us know. I'm going to see if I can find a menu online.

                  I just checked. The menu isn't online yet.
