Cigar thuggery. Stay Clear – There's no welcome mat here. Sure, they want your money, and they do happen to have the usual collection of respectable cigars, but don't give them any reason to suspect that you're stealing. Of course, you are not a shoplift and neither am I. But I was was accosted by these thugs outside their store after making an honest purchase of one cigar. Of course, the owners were flanked by the usual set of losers who hang around all day in the overstuffed chairs and puff. I should have called the cops and let them settle the matter, but I was totally caught off guard. Suffice it to say, however, they really do not appreciate your business. If they did, they would oust the lazy amoebas off their sofas who eye the customers with contempt while they pull endlessly on their ciggs. These people are akin to the underworld, maybe Armenian or Iranian. Stay away. There are many more friendly places to buy your tobacco. Word to the wise.
Great cigar place! – I went there last night, Friday, to get some sticks and was pleasantly surprised. My first time in there, it's a great place. Congenial owner, knowledgeable folks there, I agree with robindurden's rating. Stop in, patronize them, buy and smoke a cigar, have a cup of coffee! I had to run, couldn't stick around, but will return. An added plus: parking right next to the store! Unlike Chivas in Old Town and Ceniza in Paseo Colorado (both fine places, and fun in their own right), you can park, walk in, talk, smoke, browse, buy and then walk right out to your car and go. Five stars, I say check it out! It's just north of Gus's BBQ. LA WB
