Bill and I discovered Coppelia by accident one morning on West 14th Street when we were looking for someplace to have breakfast.
It is a grand old-style Cuban diner with great food and friendly staff. We went back almost every day for a traditional breakfast (with Latino touches) with lots and lots of coffee.
One day we went in the middle of the afternoon for a late lunch/early dinner. Bill had a burger
with a delicious salad of kale garnished with chihuahua cheese and sunflower seeds.
I had breaded chicken cutlet sandwich
with black beans, guacamole and chipotle mayo. So yummy!
With beer and after-dinner espressos it was reasonably priced.
Lucio, our wonderful, regular waiter, posed for me on our last visit.
Thank you, Lucio, for all the fine meals and hospitality!
