If you’re looking for Cuban food with Pacific Northwest flair, look no further than Havana. Standout dishes include the chicken lollipops, avocado tostones, and chocolate espresso tres leches, however the ambiance is also worth the trip. The interior is vibrant and energetic with plenty of character, just like Old Havana.

This lively spot also has an impressive happy hour, a theatre with a variety of entertainment and an extensive outdoor patio that is covered during the rainy months.
