Some years ago I used to work in Longwood. One of my favorite stops for a good bite to eat at a great price was Alex's Cuban Cafe.
Since I was out and about in the area around lunchtime on a Thursday, I thought I would swing by and see how they are doing.
Alex's is sort of a spin off of the original Rolando's Cuban cafe that was owned by Rolondo Vieitez. Rolondo use to own Numero Uno Cuban and Rolondos but sold the two establishments he owned and retired.
Shortly there after his grandson, Alexander Doninguez opened Alex's Cuban Cafe in Longwood. Alex has done a good job of keeping the tradition of quality and tasty Cuban food alive, but with a much smaller menu.
The overall menu is the same as I remembered it. Small and not overwhelming. Its got everything you want at great prices.
