We had lunch on Saturday. The food was fine but on near the end of my wife's coffee there was a thick piece of paper in the bottom of the cup. When told of this the reply was "looks like a piece of rubbish-sorry" Well that made us feel good! We had to ask for a refund- not offered. However the food was good so we returned for breakfast on Sunday. Obviously busy but the off the shoulder comments. and attitude of wait staff ( chunky fair headed girl) wasn't good so we decided to go somewhere else. The food is good and yes coffee good when nothing in it just issues let them down. On last visit I gave a good review but as can be seen in other reviews this cafe runs hot and cold sometimes. A little bit of leadership to tidy things up is needed and it will be all round very good..

Friendly staff and a great selection of food. Definitely not overpriced. Little bit disappointed in the vanilla slice/cake as it seemed to be stale. If I was back up that way I would go again

Had breakfast here when visiting Palmerston North on business. Cafe Cuba came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Enjoyed the baby breakfast but a little disappointing to pay surcharge for scrambled eggs, rather than poached.
They also had really nice cabinet food. I've no doubt food at any time of the day would be enjoyable here.
The service was fast and friendly.
