This is a huge step up from the typical coffee shop (if that's what you're looking for) and has terrific coffee and snacks that'll out-do any competitors. It's also got a full menu of breakfast and hot or cold sandwiches that looked delicious (didn't try them). Counter service was friendly.

Great place for cafe cubano. Nice to find in California. Very clean and the service was excellent. Pastries are good, too.

My husband and I went to Havana Kitchen the other day. I had the Saffron Chicken plate and it was DELICIOUS. Large portion and so much flavor. My husband had a beef plate with one of the 3 choices of sauces that was pretty basic with garlic but there wasn't anything basic about the flavors! Would definitely go back again.

You want to have fun, come with or without a partner. My girlfriend and I were walking by and the music drew us in. Had a great time dancing with locals that know their stuff.

So glad we found this gem in Temecula. The food & drinks are really good. I definitely recommend the Sal Latte (for coffee drinkers), the sangria, the plantains, Cubano sandwich & the empanadas. My daughter loved their nutella sandwich. I definitely plan on coming back here again.

If you like cuban food, good coffee at an inexpensive price come here! It's awesome. I've recently found I love cuban food. The black beans were very flavorful, empanadas were yummy, cubano sandwich was yummy and the french fries were awesome. Lots of people were coming in for coffee drinks so it was very popular for that. We took home... More

We went for dinner on a Saturday night, the food was good, I like the look of the place, the staff was friendly, and the menu was interesting. The only downsides were that the were out of some of the empanadas and the fried plantains - plus a little timing problem with the delivery of our meals. I chalk up... More

I ate here with my Cuban wife, her brother and a friend. We had the medianoche sliders, yucca fries, a brisket sandwich and sangria. The food was good, but not quite as authentic as we hoped. One quirky incident sat wrong though: The waiter brought food out, set it on the table and walked away. Before we could grab the... More

We absolutely LOVE this place! Have been going here since they opened in Old Town - and so happy they expanded! We have also used them several times to cater different events and each time has been very well received by our guests. Today we had lunch: steak plate with mojo sauce and Cuban pork bowl. Both were delicious. The... More
