Having tasted some of the best Cuban foods in NJ and Key West, I have a good baseline to compare Havana Cafe. The food and service were very good, very friendly servers and fairly quick service of food. The food was fresh and full of flavor. I had the meat empinadas and fried black bean as an appitizer, which came with the garlic and lime "mojo", they were excellent!. The main dish was rice and beans with pork, fried plantains and yucca. Very GOOD! For desert the Cuban espresso with steamed milk and the best Flan. Price wise, a little on the high side but great experience over. Nice atmosphere, cozy, yest comfortable. I even saw an older gentleman that reminded me of Hemingway. BTW, the sangria was a little different than your Spanish sangria, so try the Mojito instead.
