Went here to get a Cuban coffee. Ordered a couple of espressos. Waited. Then waited. Went to desk who said abruptly, 'they take a moment.' Anyway the moment turned into another 30 and the espressos arrived, still vaguely warm. Won't return.

Really good roast pork. Black beans and rice, also the plantains, were fine. Generous portions and attentive service.

I'm falling in love with Mount Dora. The old downtown, by the lake, is such a nice place to stroll among a wide selection of shops and restaurants. After drinks at the historic Lakeside Inn, we went to the Copacabana for dinner. I had chicken...More
