Poor Havana

I was sad to hear today of a fire that gutted Havana Restaurant (Buford Highway near North Druid Hills), one of the few great places for Cuban food north of Miami.  I’ve been going there about 10 years now, as it was often a mandatory escape from the horrible cafeteria food at Oglethorpe.  Yes, my first Cuban coffee experience was here, and I remember buzzing for the next two days afterward.  Many guanabana shakes were enjoyed here, though I often took them to go as the place truly was a hole in the wall.  I remember when the owner’s husband died, and now this…well, there’s a site started to encourage her to reopen…so if you were a fan, drop a line and let her know!  And who knows, maybe she’ll get a nicer place…and if not, that’s ok, it kinda added to the ambiance.

    Tell me it ain’t so! I’ve been going there off and on since I could drive – and I’m not telling how that THAT’s been!
