Cuban
Cubana Café, a Brooklyn satellite of the Soho flagship, unpretentious and inexpensive to visit, so why not join us? Authentic Cuban food—not to mention cool pastels, retro look, and casual bistro vibe makes this a perfect place to relax and unwind. Classic such as ropa vieja, pulled pork, quesadillas, and Cuban sandwiches highlight our menu as well as updated dishes such as garlic shrimp, perfectly pink sautéed steaks, tangy jícama and chickpea salads, and egg-based breakfast dishes that are served all day. “¿Got Mojito?”

    The service could’ve been better. The waitresses seemed impatient

    This is one of my neighborhood favorites. The food is always fresh and delicious and it’s such a great value. Perhaps they were having an off night, but the service was lacking—waited a long time to be greeted, for the waiter to take our orders and the drinks didn’t arrive until after our food. Hopefully, they were short staffed or it was a fluke because I love it and I’d hate for service to be a reason to not go there.

    The overall experience was nice. I ordered the huevos rancheros, which came with rice and beans. The beans were bland though. I also ordered maduros, and those were delicious! I would go again but I wasn’t super impressed by the beans so maybe I would order something else. I also had a coconut coffee which was an interesting flavor ...I would probably just order a cafe con Leche next time.

    Mother’s Day Dinner at The Cuban Cafe. The place is very small, but cozy. The service was awesome. The staff was very welcoming and attentive.

    The music was great. Initially the man who greeted us was very kind but the waitress was overwhelmed which was understandable on a busy night with only two people running food and waited no tables and making drinks. The drinks were not good I ordered a michelda that tasted like pure hot sauce. I asked if I could order just a beer and the waitress made a face when I told her I didn’t like the drink and then she told me she only put a little hot sauce so it should be fine... the food was terrible it tasted like it was frozen then microwaved. I had high hopes bc it looked like a fun place but it’s over priced and just not good.
