Belicoso Cigars and Café (Website | Instagram) has opened its new location at 1618 N. Mills Avenue in the Mills50 District.
It offers a large selection of boutique cigars, a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, a proprietary blend of Cuban-style coffee, craft beers; wine and spirits, all inside a two-story space with indoor and outdoor seating and a rooftop terrace.
The food is by Smoke & Donuts (Website). The restaurant focuses on oak-smoked barbecue and hot donuts; using smoking techniques and seasoning profiles found in Texas, Tennessee and the Carolinas. The donuts can be enjoyed as dessert, as a side, or as a meal on their own as the buns on a barbecue slider.
The building is topped with a 2,200 SF rooftop terrace with its own bar and covered space. The venue’s downstairs space features 2,200 square feet of both air-conditioned and outdoor seating in a modern industrial décor.
The walk-in humidor holds more than 600 facings of well-curated cigars.
The business moved from its popular location in Winter Park on Park Avenue according to owner CJ Hanlon because of customer request. “We outgrew our space at Park Avenue, and our customers wanted more of everything – more cigars, more coffee, more seating, more live music and the ability to have a full bar and food menu on site.”
Belicoso's hours are Monday thru Thursday 9am - 11pm, Friday & Saturday 9am - 12am, and Sundays 9am -8pm.
