This Cuban-owned variety store rests very comfortably on the sunny side of the street; inside, it has the well-worn feel of a favorite guayabera.
The shelves may seem thinly stocked, but at the counter, amid the boxes of sweets, you'll find turron de mani (various brands; 1.5 oz.; 50 cents). This peanut nougat, shipped north from Miami's Hialeah district, is a fudgy blend of nuts, sugar, and honey.
