“Fabulous Alfajores”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is a chain place with many locations throughout the country. Their alfajores are a must to try. You should bring some back to give to people--most people have never tasted anything like these before. You can even get boxes at the duty free shop in the airport.

“Good Alfajores”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is one of the things that I look forward to when I go to Argentina. Havanna offers great pastries to eat with tea or coffee. I always take boxes with me when I leave the country. Note that unless you are in the Miami area it is very hard to find Havanna alfajores in the States.

“Best Alfajores”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

If you do not know what an alfajor is, you need to go there. It is a kind of pastry with dulce de leche. The have many varieties of alfajores, you should try them all! Right now they are trying to turn into a more starbucks kind of place, but still sell some argentinian stuff you won't get at a starbucks. If you want to have breakfast, just go there instead of going to starbucks, almost the same, but way more argentinian!!!!!!!!

Simply the best alfajores! There are other good Argentinian brands of alfajores, but none of them beat Havanna.

“Alfajores and Havannets ! A must try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Havanna is now a chain of coffee stores. They started selling Alfajores in Mar del Plata. So their alfajores, both the white chocolate, and the black chocolate, are a must try! You also must try their havannets, which are kind of a dulce de leche cone.
