“Great Food and Great People”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

Vargas Cafe is without a doubt the most amazing Cuban food I have had in a long time. I am hispanic and grew up eating Cuban food. I have tried the other two Cuban restaurants in the area and was extremely disappointed with both of them. If you want the real deal, you need to come here. The owners are very friendly and will make you feel at home. Every time I visit this cafe my favorite part, other than the great food, is relaxing and enjoying the company. It is a small place where the customers sit and enjoy great time with Vargas and his wife. When you visit this little cafe, take the time to sit and enjoy the camaraderie, the food, and a great cup of coffee.

“Cozy little restaurant with true authentic Cuban food!!”
Reviewed 18 February 2011

Being Cuban/American raised in Miami, I am very picky about my Cuban food, and Vargas Cafe never disapoints me! This is a Mom & Pop joint, not fancy, but the food is soo good, & I've been there several times, it is always fresh! Maria- his Wife and cook, is the best cook in town! Maria makes everything from scartch, & you can really taste the difference, real black beans ( nothing here ever canned!!) Even the Mojo used to marinate the steaks is freashly prepared, and so delicious. It's hard to pin point my favorite, everything on their menu is great, I love the Pork, and the Ropa Veija. The warm bread, & the enormous Pan con bisteak sandwiches, everything is delish!
Don't come here in a hurry though, because everything is made to order & fresh, so just be a little patient- no fast food here. Alberto & Maria are warm & friendly, the place is small, but every time I go, it's like going home with Family! ps. There prices are reasonable too, call for their hours, I don't believe they are closed around 7, but not sure.
