Cafe Habana

The hordes (and we do mean hordes) that flock here include plenty of young cornivores who know a great thing when they taste it. Fire-roasted, sprinkled with chili powder and cotija cheese, and brightened with a squeeze of lime, the Mexican-style grilled cobs are creamy, crunchy and a riot of flavor. They're also messy, so when you take yours to go, be sure to grab napkins.

Not only does Cafe Habana make flawless guacamole (perfect size to share with a friend), they also happen to serve the best Mexican street corn in the city.  I recommend ordering from their take out section, the sit down restaurant has limited space and can feel very cramped.

Cafe Habana has the best Mexican grilled corn in the entire city! The corn is slathered in mayo and topped with cojita cheese and cayenne pepper! The pepper gives it a kick that is sure to excite your taste buds! The guac and chips are also amazing! It is a big order, so be sure to spilt it or take the rest home.

They have the best Cuban food in the city and a lot of vegetarian options! The space is small so make sure to arrive earlier than planned to put your name down. Also be sure to try any of their cocktails which are very well made and authentic.
