"Have a cafe con leche or a..." Miami Beach Favorite Tip by mannymiami

Miami Beach General: 79 reviews and 92 photos


Favorite thing: <font color=darkviolet size=+1>Have a cafe con leche or a Cuban cafecito with a Pastelito de guayaba y queso, (its like a Cuban Crossant). go to any of the beaches and soak up some of that Miami sun and while on the beach put on your walkman and listen to Love 94 FM with the smoothest tropical music on the radio. Walk down to South Point and hang over by the pier and watch the old Cuban men fish. Have a Cuban Mojito (Rum, fresh mint leaves,fresh lime juice,sugar and soda water) at Mangos over on Ocean and 9st while people watching. Have lunch at Puerto Sagua for some inexpensive Cuban food.Have dinner up in North Beach at Las Vacas Gordas for a nice Argentinian steak and very inexpensive. Thats up on 71 street. Go out to Cafe Nostaligia to listen to some of the hottest Cuban Jazz with there 15 piece band 'coolest place this side of Havana'..</font>

Fondest memory: <font color=deeppink size=+1>When I go back up north to visit my parents I miss the Latin Flavor that Miami has. Besides my palm trees and warm weather. this is truly my home...</font>
