Description: Seasonal Restaurant: October 15 - Mid April Annually Romantic tropical garden cafe with lots of charm. Beautiful, spacious outdoor setting, screened in by palm trees & flowers. The gentle breeze creates a Key West feel. Where traditional Cuban staples and fresh Gulf of Mexico seafood are transformed into flavorful caribbean-style dishes with Carlos’ stamp of passion on each one of them. Breakfast 7-11 daily Start your day with the smell of fresh ground Cuban coffee laced with silky warm whole milk. Every breakfast includes fresh ingredients and authentic Cuban flavors. You’ll savor the Havana Omelette, The “Rena,” Chorizo Egg Sandwich or Steak & Eggs. Like hot sauce on your eggs? Try Carlos’ Hot Sauce and buy a bottle to take home. Lunch 11-3 daily Sandwiches are served on our pressed Cuban bread, made from scratch in our kitchen. The black beans start as dry beans and are cooked with no pork fat; the fish is caught daily from our family’s boat. Sweet Plantains or Tostones are perfect for sharing. Enjoy a mouth-watering sandwich such as Dulce’s Cuban, Grouper or Vegetarian Sandwich. Dinner 5-8 Fridays & Saturdays *Paella by Reservation Relax with soft lighting, music and savor special dinner entreés.

Our party of 7 ate outside after an airboat tour at nearby Wootens. Lunch came to 100 without tip, and 2 kids split a meal! The Cuban was super yummy. We also had cheeseburgers, chicken, and fried shrimp in our orders. Did not specifically ask if there is a kids menu, but it did not appear that there was one. The salsa is HOT! Nice little quaint dining location after a noisy airboat ride.

Two years ago my husband and I ate here and had the Cuban pulled pork sandwich...we have tried the sandwich all over Florida and have never had one as good. Tomorrow we take our grandson for a air-boat ride and we really just wanted an excuse to drive back to Havana Cafe...by the look of the recent reviews we won't be disappointed!!

We went here for lunch whilst in Everglades City and had an excellent meal. A great menu to choose from with lots of local specialities and very reasonable prices. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. Would happily go again.

Rode bikes 3 miles from Everglades city to eat here. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent. They were quite busy so, waiter did not get back to serve extra drinks as we would have liked but they all were friendly. Atmosphere was good.

Food was excellent! Nice atmosphere. Enjoyed sitting outside at the cement tables with inlaid colored tiles. It was very busy that day so some what crowded and narrow space to walk.
