It was difficult to find a late breakfast stop on Comopstela street. But this one was worth it. They had very good breakfasts

This place was the only one we could find in the area that had offered sit-down American style breakfast with eggs and sides that opened at 8am. Everything else in the area consisted of coffee shops that only offered baked good and coffee all morning....We usually ordered a combo meal with eggs, fruit, bacon, toast. For the fruit cup, we did end up asking for only mango as we found it delicious and they were accommodating. We would also have fresh fruit juice and found it amazingly tasty. We stayed in Havana for 4 days/3 nights and had 3 breakfast here as well a 1 lunch. It’s all tasty, but definitely more Americanized than a normal Cuban restaurant.More

Do not be deceived by the trattoria across the road. If you want a great food experience ignore their many guests there, and go here! Eat the meat dishes, or any dishes, they are refined and will charm you, and the service is great. Enjoy...eating your delicious meal while the others across the lane, eat their (Cuban Pizzas!!!!). If you want good food in Cuba this is one of the places to go!More

We ended up here when our designated place was closed. We sat in the open window and had a massive breakfast for $5. Super friendly staff and fast service. Food was great with coffee, eggs, fruit, toast...Lots of couples, families!

This simple place with tables in the middle of the street serves a complete breakfast including juice, coffee, fruit, eggs and toast for only 5 CUC. Really good.

We were recommended this cafe by a friend who recently discovered it while getting lost in Havana. It is a bit off the tourist paths though but definitely worth a visit. You will sit in a quiet little alley and enjoy great food. They offer...coffe+cake and have a great lunch menu (the Risotti looked amazing, nevertheless we didn't try them as we were only there for coffe). Great atmosphere and a clean bathroom incl. toilet paper. :)More

We were looking for lunch but everywhere was busy. This gave us a table at a moderately busy corner next to a very busy pizza restaurant. However we definitely got the better deal. We shared a seafood risotto and some beef tacos with a couple...of beers and it was excellent and great value for money too. A lovely find.More
