Dishes offered for dinner include Cuban steak, filet mignon, and spinach potato. The restaurant also offers paella, made with saffron rice, mussels, shrimp, clams, peas, tomatoes, scallops, and calamari.

Cafe Havana also serves a number of cocktails, including different flavors of mojitos and margaritas. Some online users have shouted out the restaurant's passion fruit mojitos.

The dessert menu includes flan, coconut custard pie, and guava cheesecake, which is made with a homemade guava glaze. 

"For dessert, we got the coconut banana fritters and tres leche, along with the hot buttered rum coffee and cortadito," Shane L., of Hauppauge, wrote in a review on Yelp. "As a Chef, I'm very particular when going to restaurants, but was very impressed with the service and quality. Look forward to coming back."
