Donde Fidel has a great outside seating area adjacent to the clock tower. Order a couple of brews and watch the afternoon or evening go by. It’s very relaxed, the prices are good, and the service is great!

This is a great spot to go before dinner for salsa and people-watching. There are tons of tables and chairs out in the plaza, and the music inside is so loud you can clearly hear it outdoors.
