Always great coffee here, call up in morning on my way to work and it's ready when I arrive! Staff are always friendly and efficient, love having a chat with the girls. We come for dinner with the family, kids are kept busy with toys and colouring in books, menu is great, I love the beef Wellington. Thanks Cuba, keep... More

Food options consistently great. Options are healthy through to decadent. Haloumi fritters, a great Caesar salad, and yummy bliss balls - the latest offerings to hit the mark! A great reputation in Palmerston North and much wider. Staff are always friendly and obliging- top service. Standards maintained- keeping it as a 'go-to' in Palmerston North

This is a very popular café with a great variety of food choices. It is possible to sit inside or outside behind the shades. It is so popular that it might sometimes be hard to find a table. Well worth trying though

Cafe Cuba is centrally located with art sculptures out front. Plenty of seating both indoors and out. Service was prompt even though the cafe was near capacity, we did not have to wait long for our delicious meals to arrive! The menu is priced well and has plenty of variety. There are also cakes and slices on display that will... More

We tried to come here on Saturday but the queue was out the door so we went across the road to cafe Jacko and had a great lunch. But we came back for brunch on Sunday and got a table straight away and when we ordered we're told it would be 30 mins which I thought would be fine but... More

I have been disappointed the last 2 times I've been. First for lunch when the lettuce in my salad was full of seed heads or flower heads or something weird. And the cut ends were all brown and past it. The order came out wrong and then when it was returned it was over cooked and dry. Then the last... More

The food on peoples plates looked good. nice and fresh, however there was only one vegetarian option on the menu, so I ordered that. Seems that vegetarians are an inconvenience. The sweetcorn fritters that I ordered were prepackaged frozen, the sort you buy in the supermarket. I complained and said I was not happy that the food was not made... More

Nice spot to meet friends for coffee and cake. Always a new set cheesecake. Could do with mixing up the rest of the cakes as these stay the same all the time. Missed out an old favourite of the aranchini balls on the new menu which was disappointing.
