    King Corona Cigar Café has a coffee bar with its own local signature drinks such as the Coco-Corona, a hot cocoa with a kick of spice and caramel sauce. It also has a great food menu, beer, wine, and of course, a huge selection of local and imported cigars.

As a result, the factories in Ybor City later attracted Cuban, Spanish, and Italian migrant workers to this city.
