Someone Made It, I Ate It – Havana Style Cafe & Gallery

Perusing Instagram pictures, I came across Havana Style Cafe & Gallery. It is located near my home and I am always looking to try local restaurants so I was excited to go. As well, I was hoping to find a cafe con leche comparable to the many I drank on my visit to Cuba a few years ago. Still to this day, I dream of those coffees.

Memory lane aside, let me show you my experience…

A great place to sit and relax, drink one of these:

Or perhaps check out some of the art on the wall in the small gallery in the back.

Dessert time!

And now, my cafe con leche.
