It is well worth just walking up and down the street to see what's there before deciding where to shop or eat. There's a pleasant atmosphere and lots of choice in food and shopping. Our favourite is Graphix the comic store.

A great place to shop and eat, but you'll have your eyes opened with the diverse nature of some of the locals, Covent Garden or soho in London have nothing on Cuba St. Lol

The Cuba Street district is very interesting. It's not as specialised as I thought it would be, I expected there to be dedicated Cuban shops or the like. What I did find was a trail of interesting little plaques that inform the traveler of the...More
