El Tigre de Oro, Santa Clara

I once read that El Tigre de Oro (The Golden Tiger) in Santa Clara, Cuba, used to be one of the town's best bakeries. As it was siesta time when we passed there, we could not check whether that reputation was still deserved.

Even if this lovely sign was painted relatively recently, El Tigre de Oro bakery may predate the Cuban revolution by several decades. Indeed I wonder if it was not behind the brand of galletas de chicharrón (biscuit or bun with pork rind) "El Tigre de Oro" that was advertised in some local publications in the 1930s.
