Havana Cafe
"Although the name brings to mind Cuban food, the menu is very diverse. I found several Puerto Rican entrees and appetizers on the menu. I lived in Puerto Rico for 20 years and I have to say that the food is authentic, moderately priced and the atmosphere is totally tropical. In addition they have local island vegetables, coffee and so forth. I was very impressed the first dined and I have been going back on a weekly basis,"
