We Survived The Snow!

Our walks are shoveled and the streets are clear

Open 11 to 10 tonight, and 9-4 through the weekend

Mundo Nuevo is still playing, and our Tapas Menu is online!

Sidewalks are cleared at Carmen’s Jim

I know it looks like snow But really, the Hot Spiced Cider is on us! If you take the time and trouble to come in, it’s the least we can do! Jim just spent a couple hours clearing snow around the block, clearing fire hydrants, helping get six cars out. Why? It’s what neighbors do. Of course, he couldn’t have done it without our neighbor Warren, who kindly lent his snowblower. Around and around it goes, and don’t forget to pay it forward!

Hot Spiced CiderHot Spiced Cider

Our most popular beverage this winter after water and coffee. We could be selling them, but today we are passing them out for free. You don’t have to bring a coupon or buy anything, just come in and take a load off, swap snowstorm stories, and enjoy having neighbors! Hot Spiced Cider: cheers you, warms you, reminds you that winter is fun!

Mundo Nuevo plays such danceable Cuban jazz!

Cuban BreadCuban Bread

straight from the source

We are now importing Pan Cubano, made the Cuban way, all the way from the source— Papito’s Cuban Bakery in New Jersey’s Little Havana! We drove down specifically to get these beauties, and we’ll be bringing them in fresh twice a week so our flavors are more authentic.

The little ones are Media Noches (middle of the night), a sweeter bread and just as tasty!

Tapas Samples!Holiday_Partyc6d7b6

Try tastes of our famous tapas— we’ll have Jamon Serrano, Marinated Manchego with Marcona Almonds, fine cheeses and fresh fruits. We’ll pass out sips of Sangria and our new Fentiman’s sodas!

Fentiman’s SodasFentiman's Sodas

Imported from England, these botanical soft drinks feature complex combinations of flavors, distilled and fermented from herbs and spices.

Reduced sugar, eminently satisfying, they are a delicious alternative to mass-market soft drinks.

We have always built great Cubanos, now they are even better! We start with Pan Cubano, authentic Cuban bread (or a Media Noche if you prefer, a bit sweeter and just as delicious.
