I missed Cuban food!!

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... read 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.

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
