Our Cuban Tile Finds a Home in FL’s Oldest Restaurant


Columbia Restaurant, …Founded in 1905 by Cuban immigrant Casimiro Hernandez, Sr., the Columbia Restaurant is Florida’s oldest restaurant, and the largest Spanish restaurant in the world. They began in Tampa’s Ybor City, (pronounced EE-bore) as a small 60-seat corner café known for its Cuban coffee and authentic Cuban sandwiches, frequented by the local cigar workers. Now the family has locations in 8 locations and they are hugely popular with both locals and tourists. Villa Lagoon Tile is happy they picked us to provide the Cuban Tile for the St. Augustine location. 


Notice how the large room’s floor  is divided into sections w/ our single color Deep Henna tiles.  This adds additional character and is also an economical move. Single color Cuban tiles cost less than pattern tiles.

So pleeeeesed is the Columbia Restaurant with our tile that they have just ordered the same pattern Cuban tile for the Celebration , FL location.
