Cute ,very tiny place. Tables too close for comfort for us during this time. Drinks fun,good price and strong. Live music was nice touch. Menu very different. Plantains galore! I don't think I got what I ordered but didn't bother letting them know. I think some items are overpriced for what we got. We may return but after fear of covid due to tight quarters. Good luck with it!

The name is deceptive. I thought this was a coffee shop for the teens hanging out at the local movie theater. But it turns out, The Hangout Cafe is actually a GREAT little restaurant, serving up meals my whole family loved in a upscale-feeling but unpretentious setting. Great for a night out with friends, dates, or any night you don’t feel like cooking. Generous portions. Full bar. Attentive service.

small but well appointed upscale cafe with great service and music on a friday night. Menu eclectic with Spanish influences. Sangria very good. Food also good recommend roasted plantains. Convenient location next to cinema for a date night dinner and movie.

Gorgeous decor in this new spot in the Shoprite strip mall near the Carmel movie theater. The manager was very attentive to my allergies which I really appreciate. We shared nachos and Sangria and had the Carmel salad with salmon, shrimp in garlic sauce and black bean soup. The nachos were light and crisp, the soup was a nice purée, the salmon was cooked perfectly and shrimp were plump and creamy with a good dose of garlic. The guacamole had a bit too much acid and the fufu could use more of the pork onion and lemon as described but overall we really enjoyed our meals.
They had great guitar music during dinner. I look forward to returning to try more of the menu and stop in for a drink at the bar after the movies.

Nice decor, lovely music on a Thursday evening. Guitarist was excellent. The room however got very warm as the room filled up. The shrimp dinner was very tasty, but the shrimp were very small. I mentioned it to the waitress and she took five dollars off the bill. That was unexpected and quite appreciated.
