I went to Cuba Libre in Old City for brunch having been to the place previously at night for drinks and salsa dancing. With the sun-dappled dining room, palm trees, and brightly tiled floor, Cuba Libre looks like a transplant from Havana, not Philadelphia. This was especially evident at brunch with the sun coming in through the skylights. Brunch features imaginative dishes like the stuffed french toast with tropical fruits that I had, the Cuban-style huevos rancheros with sausages and black beans, and a delicious basket of breads (muffins, banana bread, etc) that comes with a churn for make-your-own mango butter. The coffee I had was quite good and frequently refilled but for those who prefer it, the brunch also featured Bloody Marias, Mimosas, Mojitos. The restaurant is run by the same people who own Alma de Cuba in Rittenhouse, a place visited by J. Lo a few years back. The main disadvantage of the brunch is the prices fall in the low teens which struck me, a poor student, as a lot of money for eggs, even really good tropical eggs. I'd love to go back if someone else were paying.
