In town for an early appointment decided to try Cafe Cuba for breakfast, sad.y we were not impressed, quality was only average, pricesfor what we got were high, sadly not our cup of tea. Will not be back.

Would expect a cafe of this stature and in this age to cater to a plant based diet. Overall, decent service and atmosphere - which is why I'm happy to give an 'average' rating despite there not being any breakfasts available when going out for breakfast. Smoothie was good.

We went to dinner on a Sunday evening. The place was full and busy. We were served quickly and a wonderful meal arrived without waiting too long. At the end of the evening we were asked to roll a dice and if a number 3 came up we could have a free meal. Unfortunately we did not roll the correct... More

This was a great cafe to share yummy food. We came here both for morning tea and dinner while visiting Palmerston North. Great atmosphere, music, staff. Very popular and busy, so if you want to have dinner here at peak meal times I'd suggest booking. Otherwise, enjoy sipping over your favourite drink and eating some yummy food. Feels like cafes...

I've been here a few times now. It is small and can get very busy but the food is good and the coffee excellent. Have been on days when they had live entertainment which can be a bit noisy in such a small space. There is outside tables but can be cold. Obviously a popular place for locals and out... More

We got stranded in Palmy after a car breakdown and had dinner here. Lovely food, topped by rolling the dice and getting it for free. We had breakfast next day and I can say it was the best breakfast we have ever had. I ordered the Hash Brown stack and it was divine. Russ built his breakfast and could not... More

We have been to Cafe Cuba on a number of occasions over the past year for breakfast, lunch or just a coffee. The food is always good and the service is very reliable. The main issue with Cafe Cuba is that it is often full and can be difficult to get a table. The building is old but overall is... More

Wonderful spot with great food, good coffee and service, usually quite busy but this is never a problem. Recommend if you are in Palmerston North.
