Paladar Cubano Returns as Cafe Con Leche, in Sodo

Great news, Cuban sandwich fans! Paladar Cubano, the truck that once lived at 89th and Aurora, doling out the best Cuban sandwiches (by far!) in town, is back in business as Cafe Con Leche in Sodo (2905 1st Avenue S).

Another weekend, another 520 bridge closure, but this time there will be a concrete rain the likes of which we haven't seen since...well...a few months ago when the Viaduct came down.
