One of the best cigar stores not just in Ybor City but anywhere. I've been here several times while visiting Florida & have loved the experience. The owner is extremely helpful, educates about tobacco & cigars in a non-condescending way, and answers all questions with kindness. Watch the workers roll tobacco by hand, breathe in the scent of old flavorful... More

On our recent overnight to Ybor City, Tampa, we stopped at the Tabanero Cigar Factory on our walk down E 7th Avenue and I was pleasantly surprised to watch cigars being rolled and to have my many questions answered by the cordial gentlemen behind the counter. There are several men and women who roll the cigars and I was encouraged... More

Loved this shop! I wasn't sure what to purchase as a gift for my husband and they were super nice and very helpful. I really enjoyed watching the cigars being made and sampling the delicious Cuban coffee! My husband LOVED his cigar gifts and I can't wait to bring him back here for a visit.

Watched workers making cigars at Tabanero. Gentleman told us they make over 60 kinds of cigars. All of the internal leaves come from central and South America as their tobacco is much stronger than found in the US. German customers come in weekly, usually on cruise ship Aida, but also on other ships. May have several hundred customers a day... More

I was in the Tampa Clearwater area for a little vacation. Several people have told me to try Tabanaros but the Ybor area of the city was dangerous. I found the Ybor section to be very nice and I did not feel threatened at all. Tananaos is a must do experience if you are a cigar smoker. Steve the general... More
