Cafe Habana has one of the more expensive Mexican menus in Malibu and you can definitely get better tacos for half that price a few minutes away. But what those other places don’t have is Cafe Habana’s patio situation, complete with couches and twinkly lights. They also don’t have the whole organic/health-conscious thing that will help you feel like you’re not ingesting a whole day’s worth of calories (you are). Because we’re in the Malibu Country Mart, this place also makes for good people watching.
