La Vicaria

La Vicaria serves non-refined, yet hearty and flavourful Cuban fare at very decent prices - the restaurant is government-run, which makes it one of the most affordable in the area. Portion sizes are rather large, so do bring an appetite. Seating offered in the outdoor patio.


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.
