Cafe Masaryktown is located on US 41 at the blinking light in Masaryktown. In front of the building is the Florida Heritage Site Marker, which mentions the Masaryk Hotel which was the original name of the building. This was the early center of Masaryktown and where many community festivities took place.

Inside, colorful paintings hang on the walls, along with historical photos of the building. You can tell that many of their clients are regulars, as the staff knows them by name.
Meals come with sliced pressed Cuban bread and a choice of two sides. The portions are large as well.

We tried the Gallego soup with white beans, potatoes, bits sausage and peppers. It was very tasty and our soup connoisseurs were able to mostly polish off two bowls. We ordered the chicken and beef empanadas, which were fried golden brown. The filling was flavorful for both varieties.

The chefs do not skimp on ham for the Cuban sandwich and it is a filling choice.

The breaded and fried grouper was excellent. The breading was crisp and fish was cooked to perfection. It came with 2 platanos and two sides. The side salad had iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, spinach and green olives. The mixed veggies are fresh and are prepared without seasoning.

We were very happy with the value we received. We ordered a good amount of food and the price was less than expected.

If you are going they are open Monday through Thursday from 11am to 7:30pm, on Friday and Saturday 11am to 8PM, and closed on Sunday.
