Cafe Habana Restaurant Review

: The owners turned one longtime neighborhood hangout into another when they transformed this cute diner into Café Habana. There's always a wait during peak hours due to the cheap, good food---which includes a great Cuban sandwich, shrimp in garlic sauce, and an addictive grilled corn on the cob with cheese. Wash it all down with a neon orange soda from Mexico, a Corona or a strong Cuban coffee.
