We love this place. Margaritas are awesome and the food is great. Always crowded, so stay away if you are not from the neighborhood. We don't want you here.

We used to make our pilgrimage to Cafe Habana on each of our weekend trips to NYC, sometimes coming every day of the trip!! But alas, the heavenly corn is no more - last time we were there, the corn had shrunken and the flavour disappeared. The food no longer makes up for the unbelievably poor service. We are on the lookout for a new favourite.

...just get the stuff to go. Everyone says this little diner"esk" place is small and always crowded. Well, maybe it is but it wasn't when I went there (don't even ask what the time was I have NO clue). The corn is a must have..even if you don't like corn. My boyfriend is usually not a fan but I made him try mine. He loved them so much that he insisted we making similar ones for our BBQ this weekend. I thought the Cuban Sandwich was tasty and filling but the Gazpacho was too overpowered with Cilantro (a common mistake). If you're in the neighborhood with minimal cash flow...try it and worse comes to worse eat your food in a near by park..

I have been at Cafe Habana on several occasions and never been disappointed. The wait is exhausting, but it is very definitely worth it. The food is fantastic and the place is busy and cool.

For those who might not know this is a sister restaurant to one in D.F. Mexico City also called Cafe Habana. Both are great - although the one in Mexico has a lot more space and a very different menu. I love the food at both - especially the Tlacoyo dish. It's always a treat. I've always found the waitresses to be fine - it's busy and crowded in there - and they have to put up with all of those annoying customers. I find it's best to go right at 5 or 5:30 when they start serving dinner to avoid the houge throngs of people and to enjoy a quieter atmosphere. The bartenders are nice and friendly as well and do a very good job.

This spot offers an amazing grilled corn with lime and white cheese - do not miss it! The steak as well as the sliced steak sandwich are both great too. I agree with the others, though, very difficult to get seated, and the tables are on top of each other (don't expect a private nor romantic setting). Service is just plain rude. They have a Habana-to-go next door that is much easier, but with a slightly more limited menu (but does have the corn!). I'd suggest going there instead to avoid the crowds and hassle.
