A few days ago, I found myself in Hialeah at 4 AM. After perusing all the overpriced delivery apps, I came across the open 24-hour Día y Noche Café.
Let’s start with the empanadas, which appeared to be slightly undercooked. They were not raw, but more heat would have gone a long way.
I preferred the ham & cheese over the beef, but they’re not anything I’d order again.
Now, the croquetas were another story. These fellas are similar to the croqueta caseras from Pastelmania and Pinecrest Bakery. If you’re not a fan of those, you might skip them.
The pan con tortilla was another winner. I asked for Swiss cheese, ham, and onions. The sandwich had a more than generous smearing of mayo.
Also, the Cuban bread was soft and made me think the croqueta preparada must be excellent.
Everything was washed down with a cafe con leche oscuro with only the sugar from the café, the way it should be. A Frita Cubana was on the menu, but I wasn’t willing to pull the trigger on it so early in the morning.
Will I be back at Día y Noche Café? Definitely!
