Who we are

HAV is a location for those who appreciate life’s simple pleasures:

Perfect coffee, tasty food, great music, and friendly staff. We offer one of the best breakfasts and lunches in Havana all day round.

HAV is located in the vibrant heart of the oldest part of Old Havana and hidden in the small streets, sheltered from the busy touristy main streets.

Nevertheless, it is only at a 10-minute walking distance from the Capitol and amidst UNESCO World Heritage sites.

It is located at a 5-minute walk from the boulevard Malecón Avenue de Porte and is surrounded by trendy hotspots, galleries, and restaurants.

The street JESUS MARIA is a typical Old Havana street where you will experience the authentic atmosphere of the daily life of La Habana Vieja.

From the open doors of HAV, you look directly into a narrow picturesque street with vintage cars, bicycle taxis, horse carriages, and small local shops and bakeries.


HAV Coffee & Art is located on the ground floor of an impressive 19th-century mansion.

HAV_Coffee & Art stands for quality and makes a great Cuban brewed coffee, organic breakfasts and lunches in the environment of a unique art gallery.

We give extra attention to the coffee, which comes from the best Cuban coffee roasters and is prepared with our high-quality Italian espresso machine.

HAV_cafe is a unique concept because it is part of and directly integrated into the HAV_gallery, where International and local artists exhibit their groundbreaking contemporary art.

HAV has become one of the rendezvous spots for Havana’s locals and a haven for international visitors who want to experience the real Havana instead of the tourist-focused commerciality.

If you are desperate for a good coffee and a great location in Havana, HAV is your destination.

Our Story

HAV opened its doors very recently because, in Havana, it was nigh impossible to get a good coffee in an exciting, vibrant yet authentic atmosphere.

Havana lacked a strong independent café-art-coffee culture. The big old mansion turned out to be a perfect spot to transform our passion into reality and create a unique coffee and art hub and meeting place in La Habana Vieja.

Good old hospitality, independent spirit and a vibrant exciting scene of excellence and commitment.

…We have a passion for coffee, art and design, good food, great music and for the magnificent authentic Havana.

On the menu

Serving honest food with local organic and seasonal ingredients. International cuisine with a nod to Cuban heritage.

The best ingredients bought from local farmers guarantee a healthy and tasty menu.

HAV is the place to go for all-day breakfast, brunch, and lunch. Inspiring egg variations, fresh organic salads, seafood, pasta, fresh fruits and juices, and great desserts and pastries—all homemade in our HAV kitchen.

Of course, we have a variety of vegetarian dishes included in our menu.

Artisanal bread is specially made for HAV by one of the best bakeries of Havana.

Where to find us

We are located deep in the vibrant heart of La Habana Vieja, hidden in one of the most authentic streets of Havana, JESUS MARIA 258.
