“A Little Bit of European Cafe Culture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Felix's Cafe has been in this location for decades. Their menu has undergone change from nominally French style to authentic Cuban. The service is friendly and professional. The ambience is like a small French cafe, with cozy inside seating as well as outside seating bordering the traffic circl in the middle of Orange. It is a great place to watch the world go by. The food is excellent. Their alternate name is the "House of Paella", so that is a dish to try and all the pork dishes are winners. The one short coming is the wines they offer. If you must have wine, BYOB. We've eaten here since it opened in the '70s. Other restaurants come and go, but Felix's Continental Cafe endures.

“Fun cuisine in a neat hole in the wall place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

I'm not an expert on this cuisine, but it always tastes great to me! My wife gets the lemon chicken, I always get seafood. The outdoor seating makes it fun. The inside atmosphere is nothing fancy, but the place is always full. The price is amazing for what you get!

“Great Cuban Food”

Great food, reasonable prices, clean surroundings. Gets very busy; prepare to wait at least 20 minutes.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Love the food here! The Cuban sandwich can't be beat. Also have tried many other items on the menu. The place is not fancy but the staff is friendly and the customers are too! Very limited seating.

“Great find on the Circle in Orange”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

I love their Cuban food! My favorite is the Masas De Puerco Frita, with Congri. Nice people too! Eat Al Fresco if you like.
