    great spot

    loved the food and the ambience. it's so cute inside like an old school diner. definitely try the grilled corn with cheese, spices and lime. It is to die for. It gets crowded so get there early.

    Great Latin Vibe

    The moment you walk in, you can feel the latin vibe and you know this place is great with the long lines and people waiting patiently. Like other reviews, the corn is amazing and the cuban sandwich is huge. The value was the best. Be prepared to do take out instead of eat in on Elizabeth St. There are only 5-6 tables. I cleaned the table myself. This was definitely fun and I'll be checking out their main location too in Brooklyn. I saw their Bklyn loc on TV, it's very cool with a backyard and outdoor flea market. Plus the shop is eco friendly.

    highly recommended........

    I absolutely love this place and have been eating there for years. You know its a good spot if people will wait for hours to eat a Cuban sandwich. There is a perpetual line to sit down at the "eat-in" section of the restaurant. I always hit the take-out around the corner, which has a couple of tables and benches to eat at without the huge wait. I would highly recommend the steak sandwich with an ear of corn and a delicious Mexican imported Coca-Cola (it tastes much better than any Coke you buy in the states). The Cuban is also a big favorite. I also recommend this place for bunch as well.

    worth the wait

    Its tiny, its crowded, you have to wait for ages for a table but its totally worth it. Had the corn as per menupages recomendations and it was fantastic, the service was very friendly the food was fantastic and when the check came I though it was a mistake - so reasonable. The bar opposite (24 Prince) is a great place to have a drink while you wait an hour for a table...

    Great Cuban & Corn

    Last night i decided to go to the famous Cafe Habana that everyone talks about, I ordered the Cuban Sandwich & Corn. I've tasted a lot of Cuban Sandwiches before but this has become my favorite. Their Cuban Sandwich is a thick and juicy sandwich, unusual from the regular light cubans I've tasted before. The Corn Is also a bad ass also. Got to come to this place.

    Yummy for lunch...Amazing Mexican corn..

    My sis and I came here for a weekend lunch and we were DEF thoroughly pleased. We got the chicken diablo...not like what chicken diablo w/ all the seasonings we got in Acapulco but still good and the yellow rice it comes with is SOOO good! :) The fried plantains were alright....the garlic dipping sauce it comes with is really really good. However, if you come here, DEF get the Mexican corn...it is SO yummy! Esp. when you drizzle the lime juice over it! I absolutely loved their cafe con leche too! Overall, VERY happy and pleased with this place...would DEF come back! :) PS: and it's a cheap eats!

    Great brunch staple

    One of my, if not my #1, favorite brunch spots in the city. The grilled corn is to die for, and the rest of the meals are just as delicious. My personal favorites are the french toast with fresh fruit and molletes with chorizo. Expect a long wait on the weekend and slightly rushed service - both of which are worth dealing with.
