“Located in the heart of Habana Vieja, the cafe and its architecture will bring you back to Havana, circa 1800. It has a special ambiance, inspired decor, and great music, but more importantly, you can try some of the most delicious sweets in the city. All the sweets are great, but I especially recommend the flan and the cupcakes.”
