Loved this little place! I had the el Callejero, a pressed sandwich filled with great stuff and topped with the most attention getting sauce. Forget the name but it had a wonderful garlicky cilantro mayo sauce that makes you want to order ANOTHER! YUM! The coffee is great. Also had the flan which was the best flan I have ever... More

The best baristas in Miami are behind the walk-up counters facing busy streets all over town. Tinta y Cafe has an attractive walk-up with lines of people waiting for their high octane, lot of take-away caffeine. Their cars are parked tightly out front and at weird angles, that is typical of such places. But Tinta y Cafe gives away its... More

I couldn't visit Miami without stopping for some Cuban food, and I'm glad we found this place. Definitely worth its top rating on other sites. We walked in to a wonderful atmosphere - Latin music and local decor. Our server was wonderful and gave us some great recommendations. The empanadas were awesome - only to be outdone by the "patria",... More

If this place was located in downtown Miami, LA, NY or amy other big city, the owner would have become a millionaire over night!!!! This is a true gem ..... The cook is awesome. I wish I could rank them higher than 5... A landmark for sandwiches... Lucky you Miami dudes...

This is an outstanding cafe in Little Havana serving great food in an interesting environment. Although located in a non-descript strip mall, once you walk in you enter a welcoming library-like environment. It is small but cozy and the staff is very friendly. There are only about 5 tables and a bar seating for 8 - 10. They have a... More

We were starving - and did not know where to go. My wife found this on yelp. If you go off of the exterior of this place, you'd probably never go in. It's in an old building, and very tough to see. The interior is very eclectic, kind of a a like old-fashioned coffee house. They cook the food, right... More

I loved this place. Great vibe...delicious food, fun and creative-artsy interior. What a great way to start a mini vacation in Miami...with the perfect cuban sandwich and iced cafe con-leche. Servers were friendly and attentive. The only bad thing to say is that location is a bit awkward and parking is extremely limited...we drove by it almost 3 times and... More
