Great authentic Cuban Food in the heart of West Jefferson. The food is always so fresh and high quality. Every time we come to West Jefferson we make sure to eat here at least once.

Great authentic food, really polite and friendly staff.You may have to wait a little unless you call ahead and make an order, but if you just stop by it's worth the wait.

This was our second visit to this small back street cafe that serves wonderful Cuban food. The Cuban and media noche sandwiches are made to order and so very good. The yucca fries are the best served with a garlic cilantro dipping sauce. The gentleman who greets you as you enter makes you feel welcomed and is happy to explain the different foods. Can’t wait to make another trip here!

Oh my god Am I in Miami or the mountains of NC? This place was awesome. Visiting the lovely town of West Jefferson on a romantic getaway. This place is truly inspiring. Tried the traditional cuban and the cuban styled burger. The owner/manager greats you with gusto and a story about the background if solicited. I can only imagine how busy this place is in non-covid times. So Impressed. Make sure to tip, as they do provide some table side service. I'm currently submitting them for a visit from Guy Fieri, this place deserves some press.

Updated interior, updated menu with the favorites and some new specials. Pulled pork, Cuban sandwich, rice, black beans, plantains, chocolate tres leche cake, all amazing. White bean soup was fantastic. Can't go wrong here.

Tucked away behind Main Street is a small cafe with all of 3 people working in it. The atmosphere is quaint like the name brags.. a cafe you might locate in the streets of hot Havana. Inside you meet Joe, the owner, at the counter. Smile hidden behind a mask, you can hear how jovial he is as he greets customers. The town comes and goes, picking up orders, meeting friends for lunch, and coming by just to say hello. West Jefferson's Havana Cafe is loved by the locals. While I'm not a local, I was still treated like one. I ordered the basic white girl combo of a Cuban sandwich with a side of fries, and fried tostones. Why you ask? Cause you can tell a lot from the easy-to-make sandwiches about how much love and effort goes into the food. The pulled pork delicate and spiced to perfection.. pickles adorn but don't overwhelm and the best part of it, the bread is soft in all the right places but crisp enough to hold the plentiful ingredients. The tostones were thick and crispy, as they should be when they are often thin and soaked in oil. To compliment it? A lovely dipping sauce that reminded me of chimichurri. If you need to pick up and take it home, they are Covid safety aware with ordering at the window or they have a few socially distanced tables on the inside. Can't wait to go back and try the items outside of basic white girl menu.. and support Joe's great establishment.

What a great family oriented place. Owners more than welcoming and food was jus delicious. Perfect combination of hospitality and good old delicious homemade food. If in town, definitely the place to stop by.
