A barely visible sign marks the sliver of a space that constitutes this Cuban restaurant. But there's nothing skimpy about the traditional sandwich cubano—a thick stack of pork slices, cheese, and pickles inside chewy bread. The place mats depict the restaurant's namesake, la Virgen da la Caridad del Cobre, who in 1682 rescued two indigenous Cubans and a ten-year-old boy attempting to row a boat across a stormy sea. With $5 sandwiches, La Caridad is still working miracles.
