During Umberto's mission, Alberto appears behind the café's counter. Outside of missions, he is replaced by the standard shopkeeper found throughout the city. The café can be robbed by the player.
The café also appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories but is inaccessible.

- In the PC edition, when entering in the café the player will hear "Toma café en el Café Robina" (Spanish for "Drink coffee in Café Robina").
- On the left side of the entrance, there is a sign in Catalan, one of the co-official languages of Spain.
- Café Robina is loosely based on Cafe Versailles in Little Havana, Miami, which has historically been a focal point and unofficial headquarters for Miami's Cuban community.
