Hard Roll Cafe Reviews
Not a big place. Standing room only sometimes. Best dining experience when weather permits outside seating.

Nutella and peanut butter empanadas are delicious
by Jeff H.
I LOVE the curry cauliflower empanada and mango and brie arepa!
by Brian M.
Quality has gone down noticeably since they moved down the street. And even worse, they changed their chimichuuri recipe!
The pork dishes here are amazing - slow cooked for hours - melts like butter! Get anything with Pernil in the name - whether as an arepa or an entree. Pictured is the delicious Pork & Clams.
by Rob P.
Margarita and Cheeseburger empanada are really great!
by Anyuli G.

The arepas are delicious but don't overlook the Chi Cha-- basically a rice pudding milkshake; AMAZING.
by Alex H.

The pernil, you'll never regret it. Also, empanadas will never do you wrong!
by Jamie Z.
Huge portions, cheap prices and the green sauce is incredible! One of the best breakfast spots you will find.
The Beef Empanadas are awesome!
by Lauren E.
Gone downhill . Over priced and headed more and more towards tex-'mex

Green sauce is awesome, get two areas and maybe a side and you'll be full
by Doug H.
Always check the specials written on the back wall! I have yet to be disappointed by any of them.
by Marissa P.
Was cash only. But now they take cards.

Arepas are what's worth ordering on this extensive menu, but if you're here for Sunday brunch, you must try the eggs benedito's.
by Lenny G.
MSN Food names The Domingo Arepa (spinach, bacon, onion and queso) as one of the top 10 foodie reasons to visit the east coast
by Michelle C.
The eggs benidito is amazing. Finally, a restaurant that knows how to consistently poach a good egg!!
by Chris D.
Put the green sauce on everything!
by Susie B.
One of the best lunch places in the area, and with a much more spacious new location.
Drinks are overly priced
by Kathe M.
the buffalo-style atlantic salmon tacos with citrus slaw was amazing! first time there, and definitely coming back. i also had chorizo empanada. also good.
The AmEx deal is fake. They don't honor it as they shouldn't. Oh well. But the food still is amaaazing!
by Ashley P.
Fantastic breakfast sandwiches, wraps, arepas, and drinks. Outdoor sandbox seating if you aren't getting it to go
by Matt S.
The empanada cubano is awesome.
by Kira P.
Baliadas are the best!!!
by Jennifer L.
They close at 3.
by Mark M.
Lot more room and now with a liquor license!
by Jayant P.
New location a few doors down with plenty of tables and parking in the back! So happy to see their success!
by Miriam M.
Pernil = delicious slow cooked pork
by Drew P.
Best food in town. Hands down.
by Derek H.
Cash only. Best arepas and empanadas. Get the Works for a taste festival of South America. Best to go off times due to its popularity and limited seating. Take out may be the best option.
by Wil S.
Try the cuban!!! just remind them no mayo. There is no mayo on a cuban! look for the drunken mushroom soup too
by David N.
Today's scallop and risotto dish is awesome!!
by Ann F.
Healthy frittata was amazing. Healthy but very tasty especially with the green sauce.
by Franco C.
Try the Batidos w/ guanabana & manga. Put there green sauce on everything.
by Robert C.
Maura, why is that!?
by Daniel D.
Overrated and definitely not worth the long wait.
The best brunch in Norwalk! Eggs Benneditos!
by Miriam M.
Food was excellent! The service? Not so much. Took over 25 minutes to get a drink and order after waiting for a table. Staff may want to stop text messaging and wait on customers. Just order To Go.
by Brian B.
If you don't know what to choose, try pork chops wrapped in bacon.
by His Royal Dudeness
Venezuelan beach food that is not to be missed. Bring cash. Great stuff as seen on Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives (it is actually non of those but that's ok).
by Skip P.
Get here early, and order arepas, ceviche and the steak al parilla. If you're like me, you can also season liberally with the house chipotle sauce they put on every table.
The special Coconut Shrimp & Guacamole arepa = heaven
by Lisa IBB S.
*Mango & Brie Arepa*La ensalada de Casa*Yuca Fries....blunch of champions...don't forget to dip everything in the Guasacaca
by Lisa IBB S.

by David G.
The baby back ribs are amazing!
by Jeffrey M.
BYOB welcome! Stop by the package store down the street before dinner
by Terri Z.
The Breakfast Burritos are delectable.
by Josh F.
Fantastic empanadas and arepas. Lunch is great, dinner even better. Don't let the size fool you.
by Robert K.
Awesome. Perfect lunch spot once you escape from the city. Chilaquiles and shrimp tacos at brunch were fantastic.
by Abel L.
Closed on Tuesdays for dinner? WTF?
by Al S.
Eat anything and come back frequently to eventually try everything!
by Robyn G.
I've yet to find something the Guasacaca sauce wasn't good on.
