Q: My husband took me for ice cream someplace in Havana. He doesnít remember the name of the place and either do I. We just sort of discovered it one evening out on a walk. We will be returning in about a month and hope to try this again. Hopefully you can help jog our memories.

A: Havanaís Coppelia is where the action is. Long queues are worth the wait for a real taste of Havana. Itís said that during the early days of the Cuban Revolution over 54 flavours of ice cream were the regular pickings of the day. A throw-back to the sixties, this spaceship-like structure cannot be missed and is located in the hub of the lively Vedado section of Havana and occupies an entire city block. Visit corner of Calle 23 and L.
