Set directly by the beach, El Caney is an all-around great choice for either a filling lunch or a sunset dinner. The menu variety is decent (good selection of surf and turf) and prices are fair. House specialties include shrimp and fish fillet with garlic sauce.

Coffee is an indispensable part of Cuban culture served at most (if not all) Cuban establishments - the world-famous "café Cubano" is essentially a shot of espresso with sugar added in the brewing process. Ice cream is a beloved local treat, and for breakfast, the customary combo is that of a "tostada" (toasted bread with butter) and cafe con leche, often accompanied by fresh fruit.
