Best Coffee around

Being in the Dominican Republic you'd think it would be easy to find a great cup of coffee, but it isn't - unless you're in Sosua, in which case you can just head over to Cafe Cubano and get your fix. And it's not just the coffee, I haven't had a bad *anything* at Cubano. The desserts, the... read more

Cafe Cubano is a real Sosua institution. The burgers are the best in town, and the coffee is truly excellent. One of my favorite things to do is to stop in after dinner for coffee and dessert. The staff is always pleasant, and when Brian, the owner, is ensconced in his side-seat in front of the cigar shop, you know... More

This is a great place to go for coffee, specialty drinks and food! I love their croissants-they are delicious! The specialty drinks and all very good and I love that you can just sit and "people-watch" because it is located on the main street in Sosua. I would definitely suggest a stop here at least once.

This is THE only place to get a decent coffee.......it's a good atmosphere for after dinner, go there for a coffee and a cigar from their excellent great value store. The breakfast bagels are good value and fresh, great for that Dominican hangover...

Brian and his staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome to this little spot on Pedro Clisante. Great sandwiches and easily the best coffee in town.

Has an after dinner drink there while relaxing with a cigar (great humidor -- large selection). A new friend setting nearby recommended the chocolate cake and "Oh my" was it good! Will go back just for the cake! Real espresso machine was an excellent treat too! Good service!

Great place in the morning for getting a great tasting coffee, and having a chat with the locals. The wife even got to find out what had been happening in Coronation street from the owner. Cheers

Some of the reviews on this place are so off the mark. I live in the Dominican Republic and I visit this place almost everyday. Service is always with a pretty smile. Cafe Cubano is a great place to meet people from the U.S. and Canada. They have great food, and the best coffee and deserts in town. You can't... More
