Delicious Cuban food!!!

The best Cuban food on the beach. Alberto and Maria are wonderful and will make sure you feel welcome and leave with the satisfaction of having a great meal finished with a cup of cuban coffee.

I have been in town for nine months or so, and all the locals talk about Cafe Vargas. So today, after I left Wells Fargo across the street (kinda), I decided to get a Cuban sandwich (Cubano?) to go. It took about 7 min., and I waited till I got home to eat it. It was so delicious! I have... More

Unbelievably good. Small local cafe with Cuban fare. Clearly a local favorite. We had some bites for breakfast..black beans, yuca fries with garlic, and the plantains. Just incredibly good.

Alberto and Maria make all who enter feel welcome. Small dining area but big on taste and atmosphere plus the best expresso ever!

After seeing great reviews on TripAdvisor for Café Vargas, we decided to try it. From outside, it appears to be just the sort of unassuming place that might have incredible food (i.e. a "hole in the wall" hidden gem that leaves you eagerly awaiting an opportunity to return). Moreover, when we walked in and saw the owner behind the counter... More

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 were there, it was full (I... 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!
