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... read 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.

This is just a small hole in the wall cafe' really, but the locals swear by it. Lots of blue collar types sit at the bar. There are only a few tables. The owner is Cuban and the food is good and genuine Cuban fare. I ate lunch here and got two special plates. With tip, about $30. That isn't... More

We were visiting our son who lives in the area. You can locate this place by the neon green lights in the window. It is located in the end of a small strip shopping building. You walk in and the area is big enough just to hold four tables for 4 and one table for two. I believe there are... More

Such a great place. The owner Alberto makes you feel so welcome. We pulled up and the restaurant doesn't look great. It is very small inside but we waited at the bar till one of the 5 or 6 tables was empty. While sitting at the bar we passed food and drinks to tables - just as you would do... More
