“Good Fryjacks and coffee and that is it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Felt like we were interrupting the server/owner's? morning. Prepare to listen to elevator music on top of DJ modern music from the park on top of vehicles. Was over priced for decor. Bathroom was filthy.

“Our Favorite Breakfast Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We first stopped in just for a quick coffee break. My friend loves the fresh milk to be had on the island, so we went for the coffee with milk. We received what we found to be called "bonbons" - a powerful and tasty little cup of delicious.

Since the coffee was good, we went back again another morning for breakfast. Again, the coffee was good, and the food was fresh and hot. Our favorite do-over meal was the Belizian Breakfast with eggs, meat, and these wonderful bites of puffed tortilla-like things served with beans for dipping. It even came with some fresh watermelon juice. I was also eyeing a gigantic Cuban sandwich another diner had one table over. It looked wonderful. A lot of food, and a very reasonable price. We ordered the same thing again on our way to the airport on our last morning.

This cafe is located right on the main square where you can sit and watch people go by on the street in a shady cool perch. Next to the Cafe Cubano is an open field where we loved to watch the iguanas run about in the grass and chase each other around.

Service was friendly and laid back - no rush and with a smile. Cafe Cubano is worth the stop! Relax, have some coffee, and some tasty treats.

“Great Coffee's Hot or Cold”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

This front street cafe has got the best coffee and breakfasts, just sit and relax and watch the little town pass by, over looking the Central Park with a breeze off the ocean. This cafe is an open roadside place, but should not be missed. The coffee takes a while, it's not instant, but the wait is worth it, it is island time after all.

“As Advertised "Best Breakfast on the Island"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Had the Cuban breakfast here this morning ... eggs ... ham or bacon or sausage ... toast ... coffee = $10 (just like the hotels) ...

However, this breakfast included fresh orange juice ... fresh fruit ... a pastry ... and Cuban coffee ...

Breakfast was so good I came back for lunch and had an authetnic Cuban sandwich ...

Can't miss this place on Front Street right across the street from the main town square ...

“Food was great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had the Cuban lunch special and it was delicious. Really Good pork, not too fatty, was sliced nice and thin with good flavor. The place was pretty empty since we went at a weird time after lunch but the service was good. They were very nice and brought us more drinks and the check in a good amount of time. If we have time we will definitely go back for the tasty Cuban food.
