A Taste of Cuban

The newly-opened Cafe de Point in Point Pleasant Boro is anything but a run-of-the-mill coffee house. Thanks to the owner Bridgette, the cafe is quickly becoming a hub for both artists and people wanting a taste of Cuban and Caribbean-styled food without having to travel.

Traditional Cuban sandwiches, seared ahi tuna wraps with sesame oil, mango, and avocado, and the ubiquitous rice and beans are just some of the Latin flavors that Cafe de Point offers. For coffee connoisseurs, Cafe de Point offers fair trade and responsibly-grown coffee from around the world. The dessert menu includes homemade flan and plenty of cakes and smoothies.

In their efforts to support the arts, Cafe de Point regularly spotlights a new local artist. This month, the feature artist is Rocco Scibetta.

Got a artist in the family? Bring them over to Cafe de Point’s all-ages “Art 101” class held every Saturday at 1:00pm. The Cafe also hosts Friday night open poetry slams, and free IT help for seniors.
