10 Top Coffee Spots in Havana
Café cubano -- it's not just your favorite coffee order. Coffee in Cuba has shaped the country's history, from the Atlantic slave trade until today, when Dominican coffee is cheaper to procure than Cuban coffee itself. These days in Havana, modern, private cafés are sprouting up to serve tourists and Cubans alike. Below are a few of our favorite spots.
Belview Arts Café
The newest bright spot in Vedado’s cafe scene -- Belview has everything from cafe cubano to savory crepes to latte art.
Old Havana’s staple brunch spot -- find your go-to coffee order and pair it with a homemade sandwich on sourdough.
Plaza Vieja’s best coffee spot; you can smell it a mile away. Come here to buy beans to bring home by the bag.
Hidden in plain sight, this café's plant decor attracts the only hummingbirds in Vedado.
