Habana Outpost if from the same people behind Nolita’s Cafe Habana, but this spot is a little more casual. It’s counter-service, and, during the warmer months, there’s a huge outdoor patio where you can sit outside and eat a Cuban sandwich. Or a burrito. Or even a hot dog. This place is great for groups, it’s perfect for screaming children, and they also play outdoor movies some nights (check the schedule).
