You would think that Lincoln Park had enough coffee shops and cafes, but the area was sorely lacking in fresh, fusion cuisine until Cafecito came along. This Cuban-style café and cocktail bar brings the rich flavors of Latin American food to a fast-casual dining concept, and the result couldn’t be more welcome.
Look for specialty salads with unusual ingredients, house-made soups and gourmet sides, authentic dinner platters, and pressed sandwiches worthy of awards. In fact, Cafecito was awarded the recent winner ofTime Out Chicago’s Best Cuban Sandwich in Chicago award. The sandwiches are made to order with marinated meat or fish, and they’re a highlight of the simple yet sophisticated menu. If you’re in earlier, get a Cuban espresso and a breakfast sandwich, like the popular huevos chimichurri, which is served until 11 a.m. each day. Stop in to the newest location on Fullerton Parkway, or have Cafecito cater your next event with dinner platters, fresh salads, or stacks of their signature pressed sandwiches.
