Enjoy Cuba’s Famous Drink
This place isn’t La Bodeguita in Cuba, Hemingway’s favorite watering hole, but the drink at this local Taverna is as close as you can get without a passport. *We also serve virgin drinks

Try what The Travel Channel called “The Must-Have in Little Havana”
This dark, potent liquid is Miami’s everyday fuel. Similar to an espresso, this ultra-sweet and revitalizing shot of energy is a Cuban staple found at a local famous ventanita.
Indulge in a Flaky, buttery & slightly sweet Guava Pastelito
Baked daily at Yisil Bakery, this guava ( guayaba ) pastelito filling is smooth, light, not too sweet, and incredibly flavorful.
Enjoy a guarapo, the Island Staple
A family run fruteria brings us the crisp, refreshing taste of the Island life. Indulge with a glass of refreshing Guarapo and enjoy a brief education of the various exotic fruits found in South Florida, including the fragrant mamey and guanabana fruits.
A truly irresistible Mantecado
The colorful, chalk-decorated walls hint at the rainbow of tropical flavors that entice the nose at this family-run, ice cream parlor. Made with abuelita’s (grandmother’s) secret recipes and combined with a modern, latin flair, the mantecado ice cream will cool you down from Miami’s “sunny disposition.”
