A real tale of two very different experiences here... We had brunch here on our first day in Miami, I had the roast chicken with plantains which comes with a rice and beans side. The food was excellent and we were served by who I...More

The service was terrible! Beyond bad, to the point it was comical. The food was low quality. Only thing that was good was the empanadas. Better empanadas across the street. I honestly do not know how they stay in business! So many great places close...More

Especially if the spot requires I tiny shot of Cuban goodness. We always make an effort to stop by for cortaditos, orange juice and empanadas for later. I know you can get that stuff all over Miami, but it just feels right at David's. I...More

We had an excellent breakfast at David's Cafe Cafecito. I particularly liked my breakfast burrito to which I asked that turkey sausage be added/ My wife's Cuban breakfast was good, but not so good as my burrito.

I am a Michigan Native that discovered that Cuban food is what I would have considered American food. I really enjoyed the corn beef hash with eggs and southern grits made perfect. My wife was less impressed with the 3-little pancakes she got, a very...More

My wife and I took our two boys (2&4) here for dinner. We ordered the beef filled tostones, some croquetas, the chicken special and the lechon asado. More than enough food for 4 adults. Croquetas were fantastic. Pork was crispy yet soft and tender on...More

My dad and I went to Miami just to see a Heat game. While having some time the next day before our flight out we were looking for a few things to do. I found out about this place through Chad Ochocinco's twitter account. An...More

Loved the food, loved the staff! Had breakfast one day, lunch another day, and both were terrific! Wonderful Cuban coffee and tostada cubano (Cuban bread), and the Cubano sandwich at lunch was outstanding. Sammy made us feel welcome both visits, and we will be sure...More

Nearly a year after closing its Collins Avenue location, the iconic 40-year-old Cuban cafe alights on Alton Road, settling into a smaller SoBe space with blue-and-black tiled floors and its signature walk-up window where locals get their morning cafecito fix. The menu includes breakfast staples like fried eggs and bacon, plus classics like Cubano Sandwich and churrasco (grilled beef) that never grow old.
