Even two decades after opening (and exactly one Lenny Kravitz music video shot on location), Café Habana still offers one of the better values in the Nolita/Soho area. This casual Cuban and Mexican spot has been serving Cubanos and sub-$20 platters of garlicky, shredded pork with black beans and rice since the late '90's—all in an environment that feels like an old-school diner. We typically come for brunch and order the huevos a la Mexicana with tons of serrano peppers, but the challah French toast is great for anyone who likes their brunch to behave more like dessert. If you show up close to 10am or 11am, you probably won't have to wait too long for a spot.

Harlem Shake is a Harlem staple.

Tacombi @ Fonda Nolita review image

Tacombi has an awesome Mexican courtyard, and gets serious points for creativity. All in all, we back the place, especially now that they have a liquor license.
