Cuban Twist Cafe


Without realizing it many people embrace "OR" instead of "AND" Our food is healthy AND delicious

Unfortunately, the consumption of processed food has become normalized. We use fresh ingredients and thanks to local purveyors we are able to source hormone-free and non-GMO proteins.

We believe business should be a force for good.

We are honored to say that our sandwiches are served on Barrio Bread! Embracing the concept of thinking globally and acting locally is critical in a world where many have lost touch with one another, and themselves. Thank you for helping us build a stronger community!

Why is the Pork always gone? You didn't order enough
