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

I have never visited Ybor City in Tampa Florida before. We were shopping for a cigar shop and came across this business. They actually make the cigars in the shop. It was well worth the money not only for the experience, but for the quality products they sell. Check it out and they also have a webdite!

A must see in the heart of the the cigar capital. Handmade just inside by welcoming staff, very friendly and knowledgeable. Great cigars and cuban coffee. When we stop in Ybor City Tabanaro is a priority on our list. Great experience every time.

The tour of the Tabanero Cigar factory was excellent! Don't be fooled by the "factory" in the tour name. It's all one level but it is well worth the time.

This place is so fascinating! Hand rolled cigars done right on premise. This is a true art. The owner is lovely and so helpful with making the proper cigar selection according to your tastes. Ooooooh! And the fresh brewed Cuban coffee. Beyond delicious. This place is a must see.
