This cafe was right in old town and lovely. There is a fresh bakery counter that sells out if many items. They have a nice selection of coffees as well as light menu options. They close at 7:00p and on a Sunday at 5:15 there was no line for dinner. The menu is small but all the dishes offered are... More

Great authentic Cuban food. Spicy and flavorful!!! Don't come here all that much but they do have great food. Not thrilled with the ambiance though.

Some of the best food in town! And they're coffee is amazing! Must try the salted latte. And anything pork...their pork is so delicious! So glad we stumbled upon this place! They also serve sangria, wine, and beer which makes it a great spot for that casual afternoon lunch.

I really enjoy something different and this place is it. The coffee has a tad of salt and is super yummy. Fun room inside where you can sit with a few friends and great tables all over the room. Lunch and breakfast served. Friendly staff and service is fantastic. This is a great spot to hang with your friends eat... More

We went to this restaurant as my husband is half Cuban and from Miami. We all (there were 4 of us) tried different foods and we all loved what we ordered. Cuban sandwiches were the highlights. It is definitely worth a visit!

Old Town Temecula has some FAB eateries, but this one is a special treat... Met some friends for a first taste of authentic Cuban food. Very casual, neat and nicely decorated with a Cuban Expresso/Coffee Bar, and a great selection of wines and beers; including Sangria.. Pick a table, and go up to the counter to order. The Ropa Viejo... More

I had never had Cuban food before, so when my friends suggested we meet there for a birthday lunch, I was all for it. There had a nice variety of food, and coffees as well. My meal was great, and the others with me (who had been there many times before) loved theirs. They were able to accommodate our large... More

I grew up in South Florida and am often looking for a Cuban meal in my adoptive home of Southern California. I will definitely add the Havana Kitchen Cafe to my go-to list. On a recent Saturday night, a friend and I shared a plates of saffron chicken, black beans and rice, and a Cubano sandwich, and they were all... More
