Good food

Very interesting to sit & eat breakfast while people watching. This is a very popular place for locals. The food is good & the waitress was very helpful in helping us order.

I had lunch at the Tinta y Café, an authentic Cuban style café. I had a delicious chicken sandwich, which was served with plantain chips. The service was a bit slower than anticipated, but other than that I had an enjoyable experience.

I use to go there anytime I'm in Miami and the cortado would always taste the same. It's a small place but it welcomes you every time. Pros: Excellent Colada Cubana One of the best cortado in town Easy to reach from downtown and Brickell The price is just right Overall, you'll have to taste their coffee, they are really... More

Great place to enjoy the Cafecito. The sandwiches are out of control good. The beer wine etc... Is all good. Can't wait till the next local is open. Ask for Carlos he and his staff will take care of you.

I ate the guajiro and it was an excellent pork sandwich!! Pork with Mojo sauce , moist pulled pork. The sandwich was to die for. They also have quesitos, pasteleros de carne, guayaba... Service was excellent as well , the waitress and the owner were very nice.

I was visiting Miami and in search of the best Cuban Pork Sandwich in town, my friendly hotel staff didn't hesitate to point me in the direction of this cafe. It is in a very unassuming corner spot with a walk-up window and a real cafe feel inside. You can tell this is super-authentic Cuban food with an amazing sandwich.

From the outside the cafe doesn't look that impressive and is located in an unassuming small plaza. However, once we stepped inside we were greeted by friendly staff and a menu offering just all the right stuff. I've tried Cuban coffee in many other cafes and restaurants but none other beats this little cafe. The coffee has just the right... More
