Authentic Cuban food. Best shredded pork I’ve ever had, great black beans and rice, fried plantains (wish there was a double portion of those! 😋). Cafe Cubano delicious! Wish I lived near (here on vacation), would be a regular!

No really fancy surroundings but reminiscent of Cuba. But the Cuban was absolutely wonderful. My brother asked that they add some of their Mojo Criollo-marinated pulled pork and he said it was outstanding. The pulled pork is their signature but the Cuban? MMMMMMMMMMMm.

Having grown up in the area, I'm watchful for 'tourist traps'...and Habana Cafe is definitely NOT just a gimmick. Most patrons were Hispanic / Latino, and a few seemed to be regulars. Our family of 5 tried a variety of entrees and were very happy....More
