A fantastic place to order a bottle of wine and meet your friends at. I have had several dishes there and I can't complain.

What a place, the atmosphere is great, the servers all bilingual and professional. The food excellent, the amount they serve will feed two normal persons, top it with the cuban coffee and flan and you may explode. Awesome place to eat Cuban food.

We stopped in with co-workers and it was their first visit. We love it and knew they would too and we were right. Everyone just raved how good it was and how quickly we were served. We also tried the flan and it was out of this world. We capped it off with a cup of coffee cob leche and... More

The gentleman who ran it for years and years passed away a few years back but last time I went his wife was still there looking over everything. The... More

I had totally forgotten about Café Piquet. I hadn't been there in years (since I lost y parents) and had forgotten the taste of authentic Cuban food... the mariquitas, Arrozcongri, and sandwhich the media noche (midnight sandwich) Yummo. Great place to go for a nice Cuban meal.

A colleague recommended Cafe Piquet while I'm in town. It was a surprising find in a not so great area. The atmosphere, service and food were excellent! I ordered tostones (fried green plantains with garlic sauce) as an appetizer. I highly recommend it! I also enjoyed the Cuban sandwich with avocado. Everything is made fresh when you order so the...

The have all the standards, and my favorite is the boliche,, sort of like Cuban pot roast, served with rice, beans, and plantains. Make sure you... More
