if you are looking to buy some "our father" or other good brand of local cigars, this is a good and reputable place to do it. the prices are local and not inflated tourist prices, much cheaper than the airport or other tourist trap stores.

We had a great time at Don Elba Cigars. Fun to see how cigars are made and you can try one. The owner is extremely friendly and takes the time to explain you the process. I recommend to go there!

Be sure to ask for Jennifer, the lovely owner. You'll get to roll your own cigars! Excellent quality and unique experience.

Visited this small place earlier in the year. The owner could not have been more welcoming or enthusiastic about his craft. He took time to show us the cigar making process, and was clearly very proud of his family heritage. Charming, sweet and interesting.

Jennifer is the owner and a great host. We were welcomed into the shop and offered a hand rolled cigar. It was a great smoke and we enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the shop. We ended up buying cigars to take home and hats/t-shirts.
