This is the absolutely best place in Havana! We came there few times a day:) for breakfast, milkshake, bombon coffee... the interior is great in every detail, waiters speak good English, food and drinks are delicious!

Thanks, Nina, We have worked very hard on teaching English to the staff and glad that this effort has paid off with our customers. I'm sure on a hot summer day in Havana, the milkshake hit the spot.

Café Arcangel was my favourite coffee shop in Havana! It's cosy and quaint; an unexpected gem on a side street in Centro. The atmosphere was relaxed, the staff were incredibly friendly and the coffee was delicious. I would highly recommend a visit!

Thanks, SGL, I remember you as the interesting person from Calgary, Canada, a long way from home and having fallen in love with Cuba. So happy we could top off your wonderful visit with a good cub of Cuban coffee. COME BACK TO US!!

Very nice and cosy place to stop for a cup of coffee! We had our breakfast here several times. Laid back and urban atmosphere.

Thanks, Kristine, Its not often that we combine the words "laid back" and "urban atmosphere", but that is exactly the atmosphere we are trying to create. Thanks for enjoying our little oasis in the middle of Havana.

Besides the fancy looking coffees, I feel they could do better with the food. Bread and egg - very average, though the marmalade was nice. Tuna sandwich could have been better. We also had a guava juice that was taken out of a big plastic...More
