Intimate, remote and timeless, are three of the defining features of Café Arcángel. Located on Concordia No 57, between Galiano and Eagle, a dusty beautiful downtown Havana street where every building catches the eye, Café Arcángel stands alone, quiet, friendly and perfectly bohemian.
This family run business opens daily from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. Originally conceived as a breakfast place, Arcángel has expanded its menu to contain more than 20 types of coffee and a range of daily specials, mainly light lunches.
Aside from the good level of service and the friendly, welcoming nature that distinguish the Café’s staff, one of its more niche qualities is its willingness to alter menus according to customer specifications. A space that belongs to a different time, echoes calmness and a creative ambiance, which is why its rooms are often filled with artists and writers.
Arcángel’s charm comes from its decor, complimented by live performances and quaint silent film screenings. The space is extended to private lodgings for customers who decide to stay the night or a few days in its quarter.
Average price: 7.00 CUC
