As gentrification eats up the character of our towns, family owned p.o.c. businesses that are still standing become more and more cherished and important to us in time, this is the case with Café Tropical, which has thrived for many years with their Caribbean menu and ambience; truly hard not to like this place except for one thing: they have pictures of tyrannic leaders like Fidel Castro and Che Guevara on the walls.

To some of us who actually come from the Caribbean it is a shame to not be able to sit and enjoy a Café con Leche or Sandwich Cubano there because it's hard to swallow your food when the reason you are a third generation exile is hanging on the wall, otherwise it truly is a lovely place with amazing service and food, I am sure I'm not alone in this sentiment, there are still a lot of Cubans in Silverlake and some Venezuelans like me who just wish to eat there more regularly but just can't because let's face it, makes one feel like an idiot an a hypocrite, people in Cuba and Venezuela are not having the same culinary experience than us over here, having those Fidel and Che pictures hanging there is an insult to their hunger and their need for freedom.
