Our family loves this food!
We loved this cozy neighborhood cafe. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was family friendly and service was very friendly. A great Cuban sandwich with authentic Cuban bread, and good music for a relaxing dinner. We will happily return.
We had not been to restaurant before. The reservation was for 1:00 because it was assumed it would be after any lunch "rush". When I arrived there was 2 other people. I picked a nice table. The tables were spaced great for any Covid fears and in mid afternoon when others arrived, there still was no concern. As a guest, you come in, get menu, pick table, review menu and go to front to give order and pay. Food is brought to you and staff checks on you frequently. So, it does not feel like a fast food restaurant at all. Very good food, nice noise level for easy conversation. Relaxed place. Definitely will tell others and return.
The Pollo a la Plancha and Picadillo rice Bowles were tasty and generous servings. Highly recommended.
Small unassuming cafe. Quaint and homey. Extremely nice staff and outstanding food. We were there when it was -10 degrees out but it was still worth the trip and we stayed for 2 1/2 hours. I'll be back again especially when the weather is better and I can sit outside.
Wonderful evening out! Good food and service. Great place.
Delish veggie hash, great music, a toasty fireplace. A perfect winter morning.
We were not offered extra plates, not a thoughtful waitress 👎
Great atmosphere with delicious food! Will definitely return.
Great food! My favorite is the Vegie Hash with Yucca and aoli, guava pastry and coffee colada. Yum!
We had a great experience at Guavas. Nice atmosphere, attentive staff, and delicious food.
Always great food and wine and I love the toasty fireplace!!
What a great neighborbood place! The food is truly awesome (and my friend who is Cuban-American agreed !).
Nice, casual ambience; friendly and attentive service; delicious food and ample portions! Will be back.
Guava's never disappoint. Food was delicious and the atmosphere was comfortable.
A great little place with excellent food and service!
Music a little too loud. The shrimp rice bowl was excellent! Cubana sandwich very good (not as authentic as expected). Flan was okay (too sweet). Lots on the menu we’ll be back to try. Overall a great meal.
Wonderful food, lovely service!
Polite service, good food and fascinating menu. Will be coming back
What a fabulous little cafe with excellent service and yummy food. As a vegetarian for entrees I have only ordered the veggie bowl, but it is is packed with flavor. The sides I have had the tropical chips and dip and the tostones and they are both great! I have been there twice and both times it was raining so did not get to sit outside on the patio, but inside they have a great fireplace to add to the ambiance. Definitely a favorite cafe to go to.
$40 Wednesday date night is a DEAL! Food was fantastic!
Neighborhood quaint, clean, have to order at register and find table to sit and wait for food to be delivered. Food came out hot, very good flavors, a lot of food, will definitely come back.
Delicious food and coffee 🤩the service was prompt and kind.
My family is always on the lookout for awesome neighborhood eateries and this one did not disappoint! Fantastic food all the way around. We had Veggie Bowl, Cubano sandwich and Steak & Shrimp Al Ajillo and all were outstanding! The Flan and Tres Leches were spectacular. Wonderful neighborhood style Cuban cafe.
Food was excellent but waitress couldn’t hear well, got our order a little bit off
Always enjoy eating at Guavas. Tried something new this time and didn’t regret it.
Service was kind and generous. Good was great. Will return.
Amazing food and nice atmosphere. Would recommend a visit.
This place is so incredible! I love the good and the staff and the outdoor seating! Wish I lived closer to come more often!!
We love the food at Guavas!! We are never disappointed.
This place is awesome! Definitely try something new that you haven't had before...worth it!
I know it sounds boring, but the chips and dip are awesome! Plantain and Yucca chips!!!
food was delicious. staff was friendly and helpful. could have brought more tables outside sooner
Great atmosphere, food and staff. Menu has a lot of options and staff was helpful with making selections.
Fantastic food and ambience . You have to order at counter which is a bummer for a big party
Excellent food. Generous portions
Awesome food with a good selection to choose from. Clean with modest atmosphere. Friendly service.
Another nice meal at Guava's. Order taking efficient and accurate. Weird that the restaurant was out of the special of the day at 5:00 pm. Sat outside, which is a nice option in the Age of COVID even if the outdoor patio isn't the most attractive. The croquettas and the black beans need flavor boosts but otherwise the dishes were terrific and the portions generous.
LOVE Guavas Cuban Cafe. Great food, friendly staff, good wine and drinks list. Best ceviche in the Twin Cities IMO. Excellent flan, too. Nice patio out front. Highly recommended.
Reminds me of home cooking of my abuela. I will return.
