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

My husband and I split a Cuban sandwich and had black beans and rice. The black beans and rice needed more juice. They were dry. The Cuban was a little disappointing.

A few months ago, we bought a voucher for Cafe Vargas on Restaurant.com, largely because it was well-reviewed here on TA. The voucher clearly stated, "No expiration date", so we didn't hasten to use it. We finally went for lunch recently. When we presented the voucher to the young waiter, his first reaction was, "Oh, we don't work with Restaurant.com... More

If you ever crave authentic Cuban cuisine and ambiance, this is most definitely your place. If you ever wished you could find that little "hole in the wall" that magically leads to another world --Cuba--- then go here. The food, the simplicity, the owner's approachability and his passion for what he does, all make you think that you have teseracted... More

Always looking for Latin food when on vacation. Being Puertorican I always crave some Spanish food and specially good coffee for breakfast. Nice people, great food and good coffee. Thanks Cafe Vargas for bringing a bit of home to my getaway..

My wife and I had the pleasure of eating breakfast at Cafe Vargas the other day. I had the steak and eggs which was excellent! The Cuban bread at Cafe Con Leche was also fantastic! Alberto the owner of this husband-and-wife restaurant was very personable and I enjoyed his stories. If you like Cuban food, you must visit this place.

Thank dcurbelo
