Havana has hubbed the active north end of Commercial Drive for 25 years. It’s home to a contemporary art gallery, a 60-seat theatre (used mostly for local poetry readings, plays, and musical events), and, most prominently, a thriving Cuban/Latin café. The streetside patio is centre ice for people-watching with a glass of red, white, or champagne sangria inside you can scrawl your name on the wall (as hundreds before you have). Go for the jerk chicken wrap and don’t forget a side plate of their famous yam fries.
