I have had dinner at Cafe Centro and the food and service are very good. But I don't think that is why you go there. On weekends there is a singer/pianist who is a major entertainer and gets the entire crowd involved. On my last visit, I met a date at the very tiny bar in the main dining room.... More

NO ONE liked their meal. In fact my husband and nephew went across the street and got a hamburger while us gals listened to... More

We went on a Saturday night and had an absolute blast here. There is entertainment (weekends only, not sure) but it's kind of irreverent and free flowing with a talented singer/performer that also plays the piano. A regular customer also plays the piano well and freed up the "pro" to moved around the room and to the outside patio. This... More

Cafe Centro has a piano player Thursday through Saturday, so if you're planning to come to this restaurant on one of those nights, book very far in advance and request to be in the 'piano bar room'. There are 2 seatings - one at 6:30pm and one at 8pm. If you go at 6:30pm be prepared to miss the piano... More

Fresh food, funky relaxed atmosphere, and open 24 hours. This seemed to be a hometown favorite - always a good sign when the locals are filling up a restaurant.
