Afternoon tea with friends, cheerful staff, mainly girls, efficient, good coffee, my friends tea was served on a tray with teapot, milk, sugar cubes & pot of hot water. Cute, just like my Mum used to do it. Good food range, blackboard & chiller. Yes, we'd go back again. Also very hand to all shops.

There was a group of us dining out for brunch one weekend and decided upon this place as it is always busy. I had the potato rosti stack, which included bacon, mushroom a poached egg and hollandaise sauce. What a lovely combination for brunch. Highly recommended !

Cuba Cafe is always busy. Quite good food, quite reasonable service and quite good coffee. Whilst other cafes in the street are quiet, this one is always busy. Had breakfast there in May, was OK and reasonable for the price, but certainly nothing outstanding. A good place overall though. Busy and noisy with lots happening all the time, you won't... More

Visited with my friend for a catch up. Nice, relaxed atmosphere with good coffee, a wide range of yummy and decent sized pieces of cakes & slices. I had the bruschetta which was very nice and a warm chocolate cake with cream! Good place to go.

We ate at the Café Cuba for dinner and lunch during our stay, both times the service was exceptional, and the food was top for café style food, the cakes and slices a favorite. The café is always busy and the atmosphere is alive. We will eat here again when visiting Palmerston North which is always a good sign.
