Welcome to cafecito

Chicago, a city so full of culture and style, deserves a good Cuban coffee house and cafe. Welcome to Cafecito.

Here, you can reintroduce yourself to the essence of coffee without taking away its integrity. As you sit back in our comfortable dining room, take in the sounds and aromas of Latin America. Enjoy one of our pressed sandwiches, entrees or specialty salads inspired by these culinary countries.

Cafecito takes pride in using fresh, all natural ingredients. We want to make sure our guests can savor the true flavors of our meats and homemade marinades.

At Cafecito, we want to be your choice for small get-togethers, business meetings, study sessions, or just a moment of pure relaxation.

Come into Cafecito and be part of our passion for coffee, food, conversation and life.

Enjoy,

 

Philip Ghantous
Founder and Owner

Live from Cafecito


This cafe offers a taste of Cuba in the heart of the Loop. The owner Philip Ghantous is very personable and passionate about Cuban culture. Their pressed Cuban sandwich uses fresh, all natural ingredients and is totally delicious.

The Cubano is the star here: roasted pork shoulder is sliced thin, then griddled some more with a homemade mojo of sour oranges and garlic. Cured ham mingles with Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard, all sandwiched between sturdy loaves that are pressed in a grill until the inside is gooey warm and the outside crisp...

A Lebanese-American actor from Peoria is the genius behind Chicago’s best Cuban sandwich.

Every element of the sandwich - from the in-house roasted ham, to the vibrant mustard and tart pickles - is thought-out.

Loop Lunches We Love: Cafecito a Cuban-flavored coffee shop with great hot sandwiches, wonderful coffee and free Wi-Fi.

The key to its success is the citrus-garlic-marinated, cumin-rubbed lechon asado and the perfect toasting (whoever is operating the plancha needs a raise).
