Enter a time warp of tropical colors, fruit-printed tablecloths, Latin music, and a canister of cigars on a shelf—Havana in its heyday. True, the kitsch is slightly over the top, but the modestly priced Cuban-based menu makes this Soho spot worth a visit. Owner Jean-Claude Lacovelli of Jean-Claude and Soho Steak alludes to his French background by including hangar steak on the menu, though it’s tucked into a quesadilla with mole sauce and black beans or marinated in garlic, onion, and lime and served up on a sandwich with chimichurri sauce. Authentic Cuban it’s not, but after a few mojitos, cuba libres, or a pitcher of sangria, you won’t mind one bit.


Cubana Café serves its "breakfast menu" all day (even though they're not technically open for breakfast) and offers catering services.
