Pastelería Francesa

Cafe in Centro Habana

This cafe has all the ingredients of a Champs-Élysées classic: a great location (in Parque Central), waiters in waistcoats, and delicate pastries displayed in glass cases. But the authentic French flavor is diminished by grumpy staff and the swarming jineteras (female touts) who roll in with foreign tourists for cigarettes and strong coffee.
