Vicente's Cuban Cuisine was created to give Detroit's palette a authentic taste of Cuba! We have been around since 2005, and don't plan on going anywhere. Our recipes have been handed down through generations of the Vazquez family, as well as a few additions from our amazing Chilean Chef Roberto Caceres. We are located right down in the heart of Detroit right off of Library St right next to the YMCA. Even through this trying times we have never wavier nor skimped on our ingredients to continue to bring you the most authentic Cuban cuisine. So enjoy and Vive Cuba!
