Havana Spice Cafe: A $19 Steak and Good-bye Hangover

Havana Spice Cafe's cure for the common hangover: pan con bistec.

You know the feeling. You wake up

dehydrated from the inside out, disoriented, and.... hungry. You need of a

hearty meal and strong cup of coffee to knock last night's alcohol

intake out of your system.

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).


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

With the steak and eggs plate, a cafe

con leche (regular $1.99, medium $2.89, large $3.79) was ordered. It

came out with piping hot steamed milk in a coffee cup, and

espresso brought in a tiny silver pot. Havana Spice Cafe also offers

decaf espresso, but who wants that?!

This detox delight was

topped off with a tres leches ($3.99), which is a moist sponge cake

made with three milks (whole milk, evaporated milk, and sweetened

condensed milk), chilled, and served with whipped cream and a cherry

on top.

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.
