Miami Café Express, a Caribbean restaurant, is scheduled to open on Lorna Road next to Regal Car Wash in late December.
Menu items include Cuban sandwiches, a Steak Bomb sandwich, plantains, roasted pork and a selection of sandwiches and salads. For dessert, the restaurant offers guava pastries and tres leches cake. For breakfast it will have bacon, egg and cheese hoagies, omelets and other breakfast items with a Caribbean twist.
Owner Luis Delgado was born and raised in Puerto Rico. He grew up cooking with his grandmother and now brings his passion for Caribbean cuisine to Birmingham.
The restaurant first opened on Highway 31 in Pelham and now is using that location for catering and private parties. The new Lorna location is open for breakfast and lunch and also offers take-out, carry out and delivery. Delgado hopes the business will attract more traffic and more people who are open to trying different cuisines in the new location.
Hours will be 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 7:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday.
Miami Café Express is located at 3441 Lorna Road and can be reached at 910-4708.
