If you can look beyond the decidedly unromantic name, you'll find to your pleasant surpise that Savon Cash and Carry Flowers can meet all your bouquet needs. Why go to an expensive boutique florist when you can get a beautiful arrangement here at a fraction of the price?

Laru Ni Hati serves a distinctly unusual dual function: hair salon meets Cuban cafe. Men and women can have their hair cut or colored in what has been voted "Best Salon" by all the prominent local publications. Within the same funky walls you can enjoy ales, ports and hand rolled cigars while utilizing the wireless internet, browsing the selection of postcards for sale or catching the live bands that occasionally play in the evening. The peckish can graze on Tostones and Platanos (plantains prepared in savory and sweet styles respectively), Planchas (toasted sandwiches) or Moros y Cristianos (black beans and rice). The Cafe offers the decidedly un-Cuban option of preparing any menu item as a vegan dish upon request.
