We are Hector Ruiz and Erin Ungerman and we invite you to our new restaurant to experience a culinary fusion of Latin American flavors right in the heart of South Minneapolis.

 Inspired by our trips through Latin America, Chef Hector has masterfully blended distinctive and traditional foods with classic French technique and presentation. The end result is Café Ena: a new, upscale, and delicious cuisine unique to Minneapolis. 

Our aspiration is to bring this Latin Fusion to the local neighborhood in a warm, personable, and welcoming atmosphere. We are proud of our creation and have therefore lovingly named the restaurant after our young daughter, Ena.
