Lots of people rave about Cafe Cuba but I can't see why. I see no point of difference between this or any other cafe. The decor is OK, there is outside seating if that's your thing but the food, service and atmosphere is very average. Not a place I would recommend but not one I would avoid. There are much better within walking distance.

We are disappointed to hear that did not have the same experience at Cafe Cuba that some of our other patrons have written about in their reviews. We are glad that you are willing to come see us again and we invite you to give us any suggestions that you might have when you come in (Ask for Woody or Darlene).

Thanks for your feedback

I eat here regularly, meet friends for a catch up, call in for desert after a movie, or just call in on the run for a coffee. I have never been disappointed with the service or the quality.
