Avalon Rutherford Station is a Short Distance from the Cuban Fare at Casual Habana Cafe
Casual Habana Cafe is an apt name for this restaurant in Hackensack. It offers all of the traditional cuisine you'd expect from a Cuban restaurant, but its name doesn't give it enough credit. It's casual, but that doesn't mean it's fast-casual. With exposed brick walls, large black and white vintage photographs of Cuba, and modern light fixtures, the ambiance is laid back yet classy — the ideal backdrop for enjoying all that the chefs have to offer.
Regulars point to lunchtime as the best time to try Casual Habana Cafe. For $9.95, diners can have their fill of a cornucopia of dishes. Ordering off the menu for lunch or dinner is recommended as well. With sandwiches such as the ropa vieja with shredded, spiced steak, and the pan con lechon with slow-roasted pulled pork, both served on Cuban bread, it's easy to find something that will satisfy.
