EVERY city has one place you have to visit.


IN Providence . . . This is it.
W e honor the revolutionary spirit of those who struggle against tyranny, oppression, corporate greed
and government largesse, and salute those who have given their lives in the fight for humanity. We provide
a spirited counter-culture environment reminiscent of a 1960s coffee house with the passion of a Latin
beat... all wrapped up in a swanky setting that propels you back to tropical 1950s Cuba.
In 2001, in a tiny 26 seat diner, we opened on Washington Street in Providence and dared to wear our
politics on our sleeve. Even with our growth, we haven’t forgotten our mission. We offer great food,
decor, inspired artwork and music... specifically chosen to set the stage for a return to an era when
challenging the norm was the norm and the promise of revolutionary Cuba filled the air.
