Sadly I have not been to this establishment in Daytona, but have been to others in Jacksonville and Gainesville. Cuban sandwich is great and a good value. Cannot wait to try the one in Daytona since the others have all closed. Sad.

Everything is made from scratch - I had the beef taco bowl - the taco bowl was homemade. The pork tacos with hard shell was awesome. The chicken Cuban sandwich is huge and would feed two people. Don't judge by the outside, once inside when you taste how fresh everything is - you won't be disappointed!! They had damage from... More

If you're looking for a restaurant that serves fresh healthy food in Daytona Beach Shores then head over to Black Bean Cafe. The menu leans towards Mexican and the staff is friendly. However, the atmosphere could use a little sprucing.

This is a family owned restaurant . The service and food are outstanding. If it isn't fresh, they will not serve it. Great Cubano sandwiches! There should be a line out the door but there isn't. A must to try and great with kids.

Don't let the humble exterior and decor keep you from trying this gem. Came here for lunch and had the mahi sandwich - easily the best fish sandwich I have ever had. Opt for black beans and rice versus fries - incredible flavor. Huge portions, great value. Everything is fresh and when they run out that's it, so go early.... More

Our experience at Black Bean Cafe was wonderful! The service was excellent. The food is very good and the portions are huge! The picture I included was taken after I had already eaten half of my food! My husband had the Cuban sandwich and I had the pulled pork platter. We plan on making this one of regular lunch spots.

Eaten there twice. The food was ok but nothing special, service ok. Both times they had run out of some of the food ( black beans, once?) Went there two mores time and was told they were closing early because they were out of some menu items.

Stumbled across this wonderful family owned cafe! The food is outstanding! Great flavors and nice size. You won't leave hungry. Had the chicken taco salad, Cuban sandwich and fish tacos, each dish was amazing. They make homemade fries and the best beans and rice, I have ever had. Great customer too! Enjoy, you won't be disappointed!
