Excellent food! Authentic taste, husband and wife team. Super friendly and pleasant environment. Went for dinner after a long day of activities. Empanadas and tostones were very good. My family had pulled pork (would recommend), fried chicken, Frita burger, chicken frisce.

Good spot for tasty cuban food. This place has a cool feel to it. Reminds me of a place in New York I loved to visit.

Just okay, nothing special but filling.

2nd time eating yummy...great service.


New in the city we found this online, and loved the small cafe with great Cuban food. The shredded pork was rich and flavorful complimented by the tostones we ordered.

An all-time favorite in Columbus. Different flavors, straightforward food, all done really well. Outstanding.


Really nice waiter and atmosphere. Food's good, I like that it's minimalistic.

Great location, great Cuban sandwiches, and even though the cafe Cubanos aren't exactly what you'd get in a place like Miami, they're still very good. Definitely recommend.

My favorite place. Went there for prom. Flawless. As a picky vegetarian, I usually need a couple choices to find something that I like, but everything here is sooo good and the staff is awesome and very accommodating.

Absolutely love this place! Their Cuban sandwich is my favorite. Every time my husband and I have gone here the service has been so good, and everyone is very friendly. It's not typically busy when we go, so don't let that steer you away from stopping in. The amount of people does NOT reflect on the food. It's so worth it. Make sure you stop in and support this friendly business! 10/10 recommendation!

Ended up here after trying to go to the Tip Top, and glad we did. Service was great. Food was really good. We both ordered the burrito bowls and thought that they were wonderful. Out in about an hour at lunch time, recommended!

Plaintain Cafè is a slice of home away from home for me. As a Puertorican, this is where I go to not only satisfy homesick cravings with delicious food, but also to enjoy the warmth of the owners and staff who are always oh so kind! The service is excellent and the food is delicious every single time, not to mention authentic and prepared with care and love.
