El Globo Cafeteria, Hotel Santa Isabel

El Globo Cafeteria, Hotel Santa Isabel

El Globo (the balloon) cafeteria is outside the hotel, its name from days gone by when it was a balloon launch. The spot now is a wonderful place to get drinks invented by the bartenders, including the Santa Isabel, made with whipped coconut, blue curacao and lemon. Their exquisite Obispo cocktail is concocted with white rum, orange juice and grenadine, and there are many Cuban classics:  Mojito, Daiquiri, Havana Special, Cubanito, Cuba libre and Cuba Bella. Its light food menu includes ham, cheese and vegetable sandwiches, tuna, chicken and hot or iced tea.
