Loop Lunching: Cafecito

26 East Congress Parkway, Chicago, IL 60605

Time: In at 12:18, seated with food in 22 minutes.
Meal: Cubano sandwich, Materva Yerba Mate Soda = $7.30

I owed a friend lunch and among the places she suggested was Cafecito and I leapt at it as a place I’d never been before. It turned out to be a fine choice, if nothing else because it’s pretty cheap. I’m glad I went with someone to talk to, though, because at 22 minutes this is now the Loop Lunching record holder for the longest wait.

I’m a sucker for a soda I’ve never tried before, and Cafecito has multiple sodas I’ve never even seen. Yerba Mate Soda tastes… kinda like a tea soda. And as their name implies, they also have coffee drinks and breakfast sandwiches, so I might go back to try those.

For this visit, though, I stuck with the obvious choice and got a cubano sandwich. I’ve had plenty of cuban sandwiches (two kinds of pig in one dish? I’m in!) but somehow eating this one made me realize that mustard and pickle are, while good condiments, kind of plain. My lunch companion got the chimichurri sandwich and said it was great.
