Notoriously, its Cubano is the best in Chicago, like the other selections, such as the Ropa Vieja (skirt steak, plantains, black beans, tomato creole sauce) and creamy mugs.
Chivito (steak, ham, bacon, fried egg, mozzarella), is just as good. Coffee drinkers will also love the café con Leche, a Cuban espresso sweetened with sugar and mixed with steamed milk. If you’re craving a delicious and filling sandwich for breakfast, Cafecito won’t disappoint.
Chicago, a city so full of culture and style, deserves a good Cuban coffee house and cafe. Welcome to Cafecito. Don’t expect to find pumpkin-spice anything at this tiny but specialized Café in Congress Pkwy. Branching off from its roastery in Back of the Yards (and another in Istanbul), Four Letter Word Coffee offers drip, pour-over, espresso, Turkish-style, cold coffee and tea.
Here, you can reintroduce yourself to the essence of coffee without taking away its integrity. As you sit back in our comfortable dining room, take in the sounds and aromas of Latin America.
