Helados Coppelia

Helados Coppelia is Cuba's national, state-run ice cream chain, with grandiose locations around the country. This particular one was built where the old farmers' market stood for centuries and has been in operation since 1967.


Cuban coffee is famously strong and delicious, and Santa Clara is awash in great cafes and restaurants where visitors can give it a try. You can also find some modern cafes that prepare lattes, cappuccinos, and espressos like you might get at home. Be sure to try some local desserts and baked goods, as well as Coppelia (the national ice cream). Visit the cares around Leoncio Vidal for the best views and atmosphere.
