Coming soon: Havana 76 Cafe

posted on September 24, 2009 at 12:26 pm

I was taking a shortcut through a newish strip-mall on Buford Highway where that weird Aldi Market is (3979 Buford Highway) and spotted this sign. My heart jumped at the site of “Havana.” Could it be the beloved sandwich shop of my youth was reopening? Being the nosy person that I am, I pulled over and walked right into the space to get the scoop. The gent inside told me it is a new Cuban spot being opened by a staff member of the restaurant that sadly burned down last year.

Havana reborn?

They are supposed to be open in a couple of weeks, but restaurant years are like dog years. So, I’d give them a month–minimum. It might not be the original Havana, but a new Cuban spot is never a bad thing. And they’ll be serving the same menu and have much of the original staff. If you are jonesing for some of the original Havana Sandwich Shop cooking, they have opened a new location in Canton, Georgia (editor’s note: the Canton location has closed). I haven’t been, but let us know if you have.

    The Canton location is also closed – we tried to stop in a couple months ago and it was boarded up. 🙁

    Havana Restaurant facebook page says it is the same people who owned the restaurant that burned and they may open on the anniversary of the fire; Oct 6

    With construction being where it's at there's no way they'll make an Oct 6 open date. Probably closer to Nov. 6.
