“Great lunch spot for authentic cuisine”

What a surprise to find real Cuban cuisine in this charming North Carolina town.

They get very busy at lunch in this small spot off the Main Street so you might have to wait -- but it's worth it. Very good pork chunks, shredded pork, sweet plantations, congri rice, etc. save room for s coffee and flan or pastelito pastry.

Sandwiches and soup of the day good too. Love that Cuban bread!

Portions are large; service is friendly. Just don't be too much in a hurry. Prices are reasonable.

We live in West Jefferson, and work in downtown, and this is a favorite. Love Selma, staff and the food. Like visiting with family.

I have been to Cuban restaurants from Miami to New York and I have not been to one that has more authentic food than the Havana Cafe. The owner is super friendly and the food is great. I have also never had better fried plantains than what they serve.

Selma and her crew are fantastic. Authentic Cuban food and people! Service is quick, she also has deserts. All food is freshly made on site.

We had dinner there last week looking for more than the average burgers and BBQ here in WJ. The food was good but not great. Very bland and no spicy Cuba flavor as we expected. Service was fast and friendly.
