Ernest Hemingway was just one of the writers who became a regular at La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana, Cuba. His handwritten message is framed on the wall still today, which reads, "My mojito in La Bodeguita, My daiquiri in El Floridita."
A visit to the restaurant is a complete experience as the rooms are full of curious objects and the walls are covered by photos and signatures of celebrities and everyday diners.
