Rubio’s Cuban Cafe


On this chilly morning AR and I head out early to see what we could find. Rubio’s has an interesting schedule and not open early morning. We were craving a Cuban coffee, but no luck. There store hours are as follows:
 
 Monday to Friday
 11am to 3pm
 5pm to 7pm
 
 Saturday and Sunday
 11am to 7pm


Awesome little place. They make a good use of space in this tiny area.


Great decor on walls and the place is very clean.


We arrived at 11am sharp, so no customers when we arrived. About 12pm the lunch rush came in and we had to pay and leave in a hurry before it became too crowded. We were heading back to the ship and we couldn’t be late.


The paintings on the wall were gorgeous and we were greeted by Andrea. She said it was only her third day working there and she was amazing.
 


I haven’t had a Jupiña since I was a kid. I may have hyped it up too much in my head. It’s just pineapple soda. : )


AR had the Passion Fruit. I didn’t want to take a taste. Most of these drinks have way too much sugar in them. AR said it tasted refreshing.


Croquetas
 Two ground ham croquettes, rolled, breaded and deep fried. I always have loved these. Nice and hot when they brought them out. Always a good way to start the meal.
 


Frita/Cuban Burger
 Cuban Style burger of seasoned ground beef served with onions, and piled high potato sticks on a burger bun. I have had these in Miami and they are delicious. This one was definitely a second place contender. Keep in mind we have nothing like this in Orlando, so having a Frita in Cape Canaveral was pretty cool.


Ropa Vieja with white rice and maduros. This was AR’s dish. I ate most of hers too. Very nice. Not out of this world good, but good combination.
 
 Andrea, thank you so much for the great service and hospitality. Your suggestions were spot on. Until we “Eat” again.
