“Not Cafe Cubano anymore”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

This was my favorite place for a Cubano in San Pedro. But it closed down and re-opened with a totally different feel and menu. I really liked the Cuban focus and that is gone. But other reviewers are right...great for people watching or more accurately street vendor watching.

“They changed owners and name of place”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

Several months ago, Club Cubano changed hands to Ms. Lettie. Now called Island Torch. Getting a lot of business and good vibes on the food and service. Still has the fat Black Striped Iguana around the porch. Ms. Lettie now offers a party area for your special occasion in the yard next door. Coming to San Pedro soon? Give it a try and write your own review.

“Ok”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

Average coffee and food. Grabbed something to eat and some coffee and sat for about 30 minutes. On the main street, good location for people watching.

A fat iguana hangs out on the front porch steps. (or used to)

“Bad food, bad service and ripped off”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

After reading several reviews about this restaurant we decided to try it out. The hostess was very un friendly and despite being the only couple in the restaurant, we had to flag her down several times to help us. The food was ok but we found it to be overpriced compared to other restaurants on the island. Worst part was that after seeing the bill we realized that we had been overcharged and that the tax amount was incorrect. With all the great food and places to visit, I would recommend skipping out on this one.

“Best EVER”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

We went to this place three times we liked it so much. The cuban coffee was excellent, the smoothies were fresher than what I make at home, the fry jacks my kids wanted more and more of those, the eggs were fresh, by far the best place to eat breakfast on the island!
