Oh my God. What can I say about this rinky-dinky Cuban place other than... Its totally fabulous! I was introduced to it one morning and since then I have comeback every Sunday. For $3.50 you can get 2 eggs any style, toast, potatoes, cafe con leche and 2 croquetas! Where can you possibly get all that for such a steal?

The moment you get in, you are greeted by one of the many sweet and too-tight jean wearing waitresses that make this town what it is. The service can be a bit slow depending on the time you get in--this place gets packed with other locals in on this gem.  There are usually a bunch of men coming in from the graveyard shift at the bar--most drinking Heineken at 8am!

Don't be put off by the Heineken drinkers or the shabby look of the place. It is hands down the best meal for the best deal! It hits the spot on Sunday mornings when pancakes and grits won't do.

I love Mi Cafeteria... Its delicious, cheap and honestly, I shouldn't share this little spot for fear that the owners will notice their too good to be true deal and take it away. I love this little Cuban breakfast spot. It has become Mi Cafeteria too.

A local South Miami favorite, Mojito Grill is the Cuban man's Subway. Everything is good in this tiny cafeteria. The Mojito Special for breakfast which consists of 2 eggs, ham/bacon, toast and home potatoes is the best way to start your day.

Come in for lunch and order their legendary pan con bistec. It's absolutely delicious. They have daily specials as well, but you just can't go wrong with the pan con bistec. Pair it up with a Jupina or a Materva to drink and your set and best of all its all for around $8.00.

Important things to note: parking can be difficult to find during lunch hour. The place is smack dab in the middle of a popular strip mall that holds other restaurants and a bank. During the week, a security guard mans the lot, so it can be a challenge to convince him or her to let you park in a spot designated for another business... but try...its worked for me in the past!

Mojito Grill also has the option to order before pickup. This can save you a long line and wait time. Enjoy it in a park or take it back to the office. Just know that the powerful aroma of those onions can be smelled from a distance.

Perfect for that bit of Cuban cuisine will all crave from time to time, Mojito Grill is the place to go and leave satisfied.
