Our favorite place for authentic Cuban sandwiches. This restaurant is tiny and nothing to look at, it doesn't have linen table clothes and it only seats about 15 people at tiny tables. We lived in Cape Canaveral for years and this was the ONLY place to get a good Cuban sandwich. Last time we... read more

I always thought I did not like Cuban food. Tried it a few times over the years and never enjoyed it. But Cafe Vargas is next to my new house so I decided to give it a try. And what I got is so good I am writing this review while eating it. Not sure what I ordered (it was... More

Great Cuban sandwiches but also good for breakfast & daily lunch & dinner specials although they close early because this is truly a mom & pop place & the cooking is really home-style & informal. Usually no lines, so in & out in no time. Don't forget to order a cafe con leche which is delightful & comes included with... More

Absolutely amazing experience! Pepe welcomed us into his restaurant like it was his own home. We chatted with him and his son about Cuba, politics, and life. Couldn't have been better!

I'm blessed to live a few blocks from this little café. Mr. Vargas is Cuban and Mrs. Vargas from Mexico. The food is great and the sandwiches wonderful, love mine with extra pickles. Must try when your in the area.

This place is awesome! I never expected to find good Cuban food outside of Miami after living there for so long. This place has it! I recommend the cuban coffee and the spicy cuban sandwich! They can make them mild as well, but it is so much better with a little kick. To top it all off, the owners are... More

We all ordered sandwiches and everyone was more than satisfied. The owners work hard to serve customers sitting at tables (the restaurant is very small) as well as take-out orders. The kitchen is in full view behind the bar and you can see that they take pride in the meals they serve. The sauces were delicious as well. I would... More

Small restaurant with real Cuban food. The palomilla steak was tasty and cooked to perfection. I am Cuban and It was a pleasure to talk w/ Pepe the owner. Will sure be back and recommend friends.
