Hidden jewel in Cape Canaveral

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.

By far the best Cuban food I've ever had. The Cuban sandwich is amazing! I highly recommend this little gem!

We went to Vargas based on the ratings on Tripadvisor. The place is small, packed but the family Vargas welcomes you like you're home. The food is delicious, the company is friendly. Perfect lunch!

I finally made it over to Café Vargas the other day. To be honest, I had resisted a little, because I had read a review here that said it was hard to sit down, unless you were early or late. I decided to go mid-day to really soak up the experience and to see how good the service was with... More

This is the second year we've vacationed in Cape Canaveral and we just happened to try this little place last year and loved it. Our visit this year was no different - fantastic food and personal service from the charismatic owners. We tried a pulled beef sandwich and a Cuban sandwich, both ordered spicy. Both were handmade and served hot... More

Stopped in for a quick meal before a long drive back to Chicago. Our Cuban sandwiches were delicious! The espresso was the best I've ever had! It'll definitely help us stay awake for the drive. Can't wait to come back and try some other dishes. It's a tiny little place that fills up fast. Alberto & Maria have a wonderful... More

Read the previous reviews for this tiny place and they were all good so we thought we would give it a try. Well everyone was right, this place is great. My wife and I split the Cuban sub and a ground beef burrito and they were both great. We sat at the bar ( only 5 seats) and talked with... More

They have (3) 4-Top tables, one 2-Top table and six chairs at a counter, so this place is small. The food is excellent. We had pork special of the day, a chorizo sausage sandwich and two steak tacos. All were excellent. The owners and staff are very friendly and welcoming. A nice little restaurant, enjoy.

no ambiance, unless loud chatter is your thing. Tasty food though, and fairly priced. Little hole in the wall, and obviously a local favorite.
