Accepted/Not Necessary


This venue is closed.

Meat, in myriad spicy forms, is what Café con Leche does best. We recommend the ground-beef empanadas, chuletas con mojo (pork chops with garlic sauce), and ropa vieja (Cuban-style shredded beef). Less-carnivorous eaters will like the camerones en mango (shrimp with mango sauce) or arroz con pollo (chicken and rice). If you're not on the wagon, order the delicious rum cake.


Free empanada with a delivery over $15.

For Kids
The kids love the fried plantains and the waitresses love the kids. Paella for two is enough to feed one adult and two kids, and it’s saffron-free, so even finicky kids will actually eat it.
