La Bodeguita Del Medio

Stop by the fabled La Bodeguita Del Medio if only to leave a mark of your own - the bar, tables, and walls are all fully coated with messages written or carved by the bar's grateful guests. The establishment also lays claim to inventing the mojito, so if ever there was the place to try one, it's here.


Coffee is an indispensable part of Cuban culture served at most (if not all) Cuban establishments - the world-famous "café Cubano" is essentially a shot of espresso with sugar added in the brewing process. Ice cream is a beloved local treat, and for breakfast, the customary combo is that of a "tostada" (toasted bread with butter) and cafe con leche, often accompanied by fresh fruit.
