Carmen’s Café - ExteriorCarmen’s Café is about great Cuban and Spanish American food and drink, and interesting conversation in a friendly, informal setting.

Cuban-Spanish-American food in a bistro setting. Carmen’s Café was founded with the idea that people need an easy, attractive place to gather; fresh, tasty wholesome food at reasonable prices; and interesting art, ideas and entertainment to feed their bodies and souls.

Carmen is Cuban/Puerto Rican. She cooks the food she grew up with, what she tasted while visiting relatives and friends in Spain and on the Islands. It’s a mix of Cuban, Spanish, American and more. We cook it all fresh with healthy ingredients. We always have vegetarian options.
