We really liked this place but it has closed and is now called Monk Beer Abbey. Have not tried, but Cafe Havana will be missed.

I met a friend here for lunch. The restaurant is small and clean and friendly staff. I cannot complain about the service at all - our server was efficient and attentive. My friend ordered the carne asada which was a nice sized portion and came with a side of spinach and a chimichurri sauce. I did not taste this, but... More

The place is small, but clean and friendly. The menu was interesting and some items were a little pricey. I chose the Cuban Sandwich. It was huge and so delicious and surrounded by the best French fries I have had in a long time. The waiter was attentive, helpful, but not pushy. I took half the sandwich home and my... More

Visited on a Sunday afternoon with a family group of eight people. Fish Tacos and Cuban sandwiches were excellent. Not too busy and waitstaff was excellent with recommendations!
