A New Restaurant I Want to Share with All Coming to La Habana


If you are looking for a place that truly reflects the new young Cuba, I have a suggestion for you.

Café Galeria Mamaine. (ma ma ee nay)

Created by a local artist and decked out with his works, the café is decorated with the leftovers of Cuban’s past in a way that creates a very special cozy spot in La Habana loca. The name comes from a traditional Cuban song which in part talks about how we Cubans love our coffee. And the menu has some excellent selections and variations on this most Cuban of beverages. The menu is compact with a good breakfast and more than adequate light lunch and snacks. Besides the coffee they offer a full selection of beverages which like the food are reasonably priced.

With prices that reflect what Cubans can afford, Mamaine is the place to meet for coffee and conversation for young medical students and working people of all ages. The service is super friendly and never presses you to move on; stay – eat – drink – talk – the real Cuba. Please keep an eye out for the zunzun – the hummingbird – that frequents the place.

If you are staying near 23rd Street ( La Rampa) it is right there. Hotels nearby include: Hotel Nacional, Capri, Victoria, and Habana Libre among others.

Open Monday to Thursday and Sunday from 8am to 12 am; Friday and

Saturday from 8 am to 3 am

Calle L No. 206 between 15 and 17 Streets in Vedado


With love from Ana de Havana
