Born in Cuba, raised in Miami, FL. From a very young age Enrique joined his family's bakery becoming an extraordinary Master Baker himself. Later opening his own bakery/cafe in Florida and now his own Cuban Sandwich Cafe in Austin, Texas!
..and the amazing El Cubanito Burger
The sandwich is on traditional Cuban bread, with a thick layer of the cafe's rich, well-seasoned, tender roasted pork & a fantastic sandwich improved only by the addition of garlicky mojo sauce. The Cubanito burger is massive, with burger patty, ham, two cheeses, lechón, and bacon sitting atop the standard vegetables, easily in the Top 10 of Austin burgers.Mick Vann - Austin Chronicle
In May 1967, my family and I arrived from Cuba to New Jersey when I was only 5 years old. My uncle Justo Reyes, known as "cuco" and my father, Innocent Reyes, undertook their first bakery business. In 1972, we moved to Miami, FL where again my family started a bakery business. I grew in the industry and learned the art of cooking and baking, later taking me to open my first business. With time and searching for a better future for my family I moved to Texas in 2009. Here I started working as a manager for a supermarket chain, however, with the restlessness of establishing my own business and seeing that there was nothing Cuban I opened my first Cuban Cafe in Austin, TX. Along with my wife and daughter we opened the doors of Cuban Sandwich Cafe on September 4, 2010.
En Mayo de 1967, llagamos de Cuba a New Jersey, mi familia y yo con solo 5 anos de edad, donde mi tio Justo Reyes, conocido como "cuco" y mi padre, Inocente Reyes, emprendieron su primer negocio de panaderia. En 1972, nos movimos a Miami, FL donde nuevament la familia emprende el negocio de panaderia. Por tal motive crecimos en el negocio de donde cuatro de seis hermanos aprendimos el arte culinario, luego llevandome a poner mi primer negocio. Trascurriendo el tiempo y buscando un mejor futuro para mi familia me mude a Texas en el 2009. Aqui empece a trabajar como manager para una cadena de supermercados y con la inquietud de poner mi propio negocio y al ver que no habia nada Cubano, puse mi primera panaderia y cafe Cubana en Austin, TX y junto a mi esposa e hija abri las puertas de Cuban Sandwich Cafe el 4 de Setiembre, 2010.
