Tasty Pricey AA

Food & Drink were excellent & authentic. Pricey for lunch. Nice ambience on a main street corner, quite modern, with a fireplace.

They serve an awesome burger - Try it! We also had some good appetizers (flat bread pizza and something else - all were good). The old fashions are good too (a lil strong, but very good!)

Cafe Habana has the advantage of giving you bar level food with a cuban twist. Our table of 4 all had different menu items and we all rated the food just average. Likewise, noone was blown away by the mojitos.

Can't go wrong here. Food is consistent and bar in the basement is great. Salsa lessons on Thursdays if you are up to it!

Went back to AA in November and had dinner + drinks at Cafe Habana. I used to love drinking their sangria in the low-lighted, cool bar downstairs. If you go early enough - grab a table or a booth, then you don't have to mingle. My last visit I had the fish tacos and they were delicious! Drinks are a... More

I really like the menu at Cafe Habana- it had quite a variety of dishes to choose from. You could go back several times and have a completely different meal each time. We had the regular margaritas which were a bit peculiar tasting- very large and not much tequila. I would ask for a smaller size with extra tequila next... More

I've dined here a couple of times. The food is interesting. Liked the spicy corn. But it is noisy and the service leaves much to be desired. In general college kids make for amateur waitstaff, particularly if undertrained. Nice ambiance.

This is a favorite for my daughter and son-in-law. The restaurant was crowded at lunch time but we were seated quickly...it was graduation weekend at UMich.
