Here’s a great selection of restaurants in Denver where you can get your hands on some tasty Cuban food.

Buchi Cafe Cubano

2651 West 38th Avenue
Denver, CO 80211-2103

Buchi offers mainly coffee and Cuban pressed sandwiches – ah – but what coffee! The Café con Leche is magnificent.

Cuba Cuba Cafe & Bar

1173 Delaware Street
Denver, CO 80204
(303) 605-2822‎



The Cuba Cuba Cafe has great mojitos, that’s for sure. Also make sure you try the plantains, paella, chicken, mahi … there’s so much more. They also have very good dessert flan.

Samba Room

1460 Larimer Street
Denver, CO 80202
(720) 956-1701‎



Food at the Samba Room is very good, but what I really have to praise is the service. The recommendations were excellent and never led me astray. They have good mojito’s too. And don’t tell me there’s no such thing as a bad mojito. There is. But not here.
