We went to Vargas on a tip from a local that we had met. It's just 1/2 block off A1A, so it's easy to find. We walked in and the owner was singing and the customers were laughing and telling stories. It immediately showed that this was a local place where everybody knows each other. We started with both the... More

Stopped in to check this place out after reading some good recommendations, and boy did it live up to them. Alberto and his wife run the place with help from a friendly young lady, and the care con leche, food, and conversation were terrific. Had the ropa vieja one day with yellow rice and black beans, and it was terrific,... More

For fabulous food and a fun experience, you have to visit Cafe Vargas. Sit at the counter and visit with your host, Alberto, while his lovely esposa prepares comida deliciosa. Try the special of the day; you will not be disappointed, nor will you leave hungry!

After Hurricane Mathew passed there were very few places to eat breakfast. Cafe Vargas was suggested by friends and it was beyond all reasonable expectations. the owner and his wife were most accommodating and made us feel like family. It reminded us of the Cuban version of Cheers. Because of Mathew item selection was limited, but service and prices can... More
