If you're in Brooklyn and craving Cafe Habana, stop by Habana Outpost. It's owned by the same guy responsible for Cafe Habana, but the wait is relatively shorter, there's more ample seating, and the whole place is eco friendly. The downside is the food is far more delicious at Cafe Habana, and the sandwhiches here do not come with fries. But, it's still an excellent food choice.

Habana Outpost offers a copacetic atmosphere on those hot sultry summer nights. It’s crowded but convivial and the frozen mojitos are rapturous. From its spacious outdoor lot to its self-sufficiency ethos, Habana Outpost really does have a frontier land feel. The bathroom has a gray water filtration system that sustains a small garden, and the roof is lined with solar panels. On the weekends, they fire up the bicycle-powered blender to mix drinks.
I typically treat myself to the eight-dollar mojito and then switch to $2.50 cups of local Six Point ale. For a little soakage, they serve moderately priced Cuban food and corn on the cob from a food truck parked out back. If you come on a weekday, you have a sporting chance to find a seat at a picnic table.
