A little bit of Havana has made its way to Cape Coral, Fla. While there might be little English spoken at Meson Camagueyano the food translates in wonderful homemade flavors. Located next to Mel’s Chiropractic on Cape Coral Parkway is cute new spot and the parking lot was full the day we decided to check it out.

We sampled the sangria while we waited for Moro Rice and Fried Plantains. What was supposed to be side dishes for our dinner turned into a late afternoon snack because the smells were so amazing we could hardly wait to try it.

Meson Camagueyano is open 7 days a week. They offer breakfast which is reasonably priced starting at $2.75 for an omelette. Top it off with a cuban coffee and you are good to go.

For lunch, they offer tuna, chicken, steak, roast pork, shredded beef and a traditional Cuban sammie. Prices range from $3.40 to $7.50 or you can go all out for a daily special that are $6.99.
