Cuban Sandwich Cafe – A NE Austin Neighborhood Gem
If you haven’t yet been to Cuban Sandwich Cafe, add it to your “to try” for breakfast and lunch list. This mom and pop shop is unassuming, located in a strip mall in the Windsor Park area of Austin next to a storefront church, and makes truly memorable breakfast pastries and sandwiches.
Below is a selection of the breakfast pastries that a group of us shared. I can’t remember what the total price was for these, but I do remember being surprised by how inexpensive they were. We sipped our Cuban coffees and tore pieces of these to share until there was nothing left in the box.
The most killer dish I’ve had at Cuban Sandwich Cafe is this cubano sandwich, made with fresh bread baked from scratch, ham, swiss cheese, pork, mayo, mustard and pickles. Try a bite of this sandwich and you will be saying to yourself (or aloud), “day-am.” It’s that good.
Head over to Cuban Sandwich Cafe, located East of I-35 in between the 51st St. and 290E exit. It’s a lot closer to home than flying to Cuba, or even Miami, to get a decent Cuban sandwich.
