La Isla review image

La Isla


104 Washington St, Hoboken
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

La Isla has two locations in Hoboken, but you want to go to the one downtown. It’s a classic Cuban diner complete with brightly colored wallpaper, an eat-in counter with swivel stools, and softball-sized papa rellenas. La Isla not only serves up excellent Cubanos, but it also has incredible people-watching, since you’ll see folks from all walks of life pass through, like local day workers grabbing some lunch to Wall Street commuters taking advantage of their BYOB policy on their way home from the PATH.
