Flor de Cuba has a restaurant, a bakery, a bar and live entertainment. I have personally experienced them all, and they are wonderful! The restaurant serves traditional Cuban cuisine such as rice and black beans, plantains, ropa vieja, and vaca frita. The Houston Press awarded Flor de Cuba “Best Cuban Restaurant” in 2010. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Their extensive bakery also carries numerous Cuban delicacies, such as pastelitos de guayaba, tres leches, and marquesitos. Finally, Flor de Cuba has terrific live entertainment and an active dance floor on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
