Historic. In existence for more than 200 years, the well-known cafe and full-service restaurant is adjacent to the main waterfront walkway, el malecon, which always teems with locals. Servers make a big show of preparing the popular cafe con leche. You are brought a cup of triple espresso coffee, which you clink with a spoon when you're ready for the scalding milk. A roaming server comes by and raises the large metal teapot way up, and brings it back down as they pour the milk into your cup.
