In a humble colonial house from the 18th century, they have had the willingness to recall and honor in a pleasant way the passing along Santiago de Cuba of the French emigrants brought to Cuba. It was them who gave renown to the eastern coffee with new technologies for its cultivation and the introduction of varieties.
La Isabélica bears the name of one of the most important coffee plantations in Santiago. You can savor infusions of nice and aromatic coffee in a circle arranged for a restful break and conversation. Allegorical figures to coffee production stand in this place, giving it a traditional and novel touch. With a varied offer in CUP they make pure coffee, coffee with liquor, Rocío de Gallo (Rooster’s Dew), a la Mariana and the Isabélica one. They also offer beer, mineral water and cigarettes in CUC.
Its stools and tables put all over a small space, make the place attractive for the traveler and inviting to taste a good coffee in one of the noisiest streets in the city.
