    Went to puerto saga and tropical beach cafe and this place is the only legit place. Order the media noche which is a Cuban with sweeter bread. Don't be afraid to fight for the register!

    Cash-only. No-frills. This South Beach staple dishes out the best cubanos in town. Grab one from the take-out window and head back to the beach. Read more

    Recommended by Cuban uber driver. Excellent colada and empanadas! We liked the pork and plantain empanadas over the beef but both were delicious!

    Small deli-like place with 5 tables. No visible menu and the staff mostly speak Spanish. They don't take credit cards either. Thankfully, breakfast here is fantastic. Get the scrambled eggs with ham.

    Cash only. Informal place w/ fantastic food & fast service. The chicken soup, chicken stew, pineapple juice & sweet plantains were delicious. The pork envueltos & beans rice were just ok. Good prices

    Only had a cortadito. It encourages! Fresh feasts await. Eat the chicken, the plantains, the tamales, and of course...the Cuban coffee. Oh, and say "hello" before placing your order. 😉

    This is one of my favorite places to eat in Miami. Empanadas - could eat them forever. Arroz con frijoles - coming right up. Lechon, the list just goes on.

    The café con leche is the best coffee in Miami, which is why it’s on our list of The Tastes That Make the City: Miami. Read more

    Local-style informal Cuban restaurant with the best homemade dishes, made daily. The menu always changes, but the delicious flavors do not. Try the sugarcane juice.

    Cubano sandwich is fantastic. Watch them slather it with butter and throw it on the plancha. Longest 5 minutes of your life.

    Tried getting one of the daily specials. Took multiple people to figure out they were out. Ordered something else and ended up with the wrong food. Maybe good for breakfast but I'm unimpressed.

    so busy here that it's rude. by the time I pay, my meal is cold and the staff can't handle the customers. The sound of people screaming over each other is crazy. Don't waste your money or your time.

    The empanadas, both carne & pollo, are amazing. The cafe con leche & cortadito's are some of the best coffee I've ever had.

    Awesome coffee. Definite locals spot. Great for any meal. Cuban sandwiches, meats, rice, beans, empanadas (chicken is best), fresh OJ and Watermelon Juice.

    Really good Cafe con Leche - really hot, really strong & really sweet - for $1.50. Small wonder there's a long line out the door and for the outdoor window each morning.

    Popular & traditional Cuban cuisine! Be prepared – its cash only, and the staff speaks mostly Spanish. As recommended by Travel Channel host, Anthony Bourdain.

    The orange juice is really awesome... But expensive. Everything else is a great price and really yummy! Coffee is perfect.
