Havana Spice Cafe: A $19 Steak and Good-bye Hangover
|Havana Spice Cafe's cure for the common hangover: pan con bistec.|
You're in luck. Located off US-1, near Dadeland, Havana Spice Cafe is open for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings beginning at 9 a.m.
On the breakfast menu, served from opening until 1 p.m., the huevos con bistec includes homefries and two hearty, pre-buttered pieces of toasted Cuban bread (served with pre-packaged jelly). You have a choice between: 4 oz. palomilla ($9.99), 8 oz. palomilla ($12.99), 7 oz. churrasco ($13.99), and 12 oz. churrasco ($18.99). I chose the 4 oz. palomilla with two eggs over easy, as suggested by our friendly server who was prompt and brought extra napkins to the table without us asking. You can add cheese ($.99), substitute home fries with French fries ($.99), or substitute egg whites ($1.99).
It wasn't a thick steak, as the 4 oz. might suggest, but it was tender. The over easy eggs were nice and runny. The "home fries," as described on the menu, are actually well-seasoned, roasted potatoes: a welcome surprise.

When you're coming out of your night of intoxicated escapades, you want a relaxing, Sunday morning atmosphere without screaming kids, lines out the door, strollers, or overpriced food. Havana Spice Cafe is that place.
