Had a long 7 kilometres walk into central Palmerston North and came across this place and it was a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. Coffee and chocolate Carmel slice was to die for.

Cafe Cuba is always busy, which just shows you how popular it is. For good reason too. Whenever I go, their coffees (and milkshakes) are always perfectly delicious. Also, their chips and food is great too. Always a must when in Palmy!
