This all-day Cuban cafe in Lakeview gets kind of a late start (11am), but their small selection of breakfast dishes are worth waiting for. And when we say small, we mean it—there are only six items. But their open-faced toast with serrano ham and thinly shaved parm is great, as is their French toast with bananas and caramel sauce. Some non-breakfast options (the Cubano, for example) are solid, but less impressive dishes (like paella or their ribs) make us glad that we can grab an egg sandwich until 4pm. Cubaneo’s vibrantly decorated interior full of colorful chairs and a wall of old painted doors is small, but it’s rarely busy, so you can drop by for an impromptu solo breakfast, or a relaxed catch-up with friends.
