I don't smoke cigars but my husband does. It was fun to go into the shop and see them actually making cigars. The owner of the shop will answer any question you like about cigars and how they are made. He explains the difference in leaves and what they are used for.

Wonderful morning spent enjoying an iced latte and a fine cigar. Watching true craftspeople creating their house cigars, and sitting outside on a beautiful January day (for a northerner...lol) and checking out the folks as they stroll by. A wonderful day, unfortunately I lost my free coffee ticket already! I will return though!

I was in Tampa on business and a colleague back home who *does* smoke cigars asked in an off-handed way if I could pick him up something just as a souvenir.

One of the best cigar stores not just in Ybor City but anywhere. I've been here several times while visiting Florida & have loved the experience. The owner is extremely helpful, educates about tobacco & cigars in a non-condescending way, and answers all questions with kindness. Watch the workers roll tobacco by hand, breathe in the scent of old flavorful... More

Loved this shop! I wasn't sure what to purchase as a gift for my husband and they were super nice and very helpful. I really enjoyed watching the cigars being made and sampling the delicious Cuban coffee! My husband LOVED his cigar gifts and I can't wait to bring him back here for a visit.
