Located in the heart of South Minneapolis, Cafe Ena is a culinary fusion of Latin American Flavors blended with a classic French technique.

Inspired by trips through Latin America, Chef/Owner Hector Ruiz opened Cafe Ena in May 2007. Since then the restaurant has become a go to destination for local people as well as visitor's searching for cuisine that is upscale, yet affordable. Chef Ruiz incorporates his knowledge of Latin spices and infuses them with a French style technique he studied in Paris, France at the well known Michelin three-star restaurant Lucas Carton of Chef Alain Senderens. The end result is not only quality dishes throughout the menu, but an experience for the customer that takes them into unknown flavors pleasing to a multitude of palettes.

Cafe Ena offers a casual, warm, personable and welcoming atmosphere. Come dine with us; we would love to offer you an excellent experience you will not forget.
