437 S.W. 2nd St., Little Havana
It's tucked into the Roam Miami space, but don’t dismiss Casa Florida as another hipster bar set inside an old truck. Yes, it is in fact set up inside a revamped yet delightfully retro trailer, but this is not a kitschy, trendy gimmick. With room for only about ten people, Casa Florida is a bar for people who take the quality of their cocktails seriously, want to lounge on a beautifully upholstered sofa, and plan to stay for the evening.
Azucar Ice Cream
1503 S.W. 8th St., Little Havana
It doesn’t get much better than some Azucar Ice Cream on a hot day: Think incredible flavors, like café con leche (Cuban coffee and Oreo), olive oil, orange zest and dark chocolate, and guarapiña (sugarcane and pineapple), served in generous waffle cones. The ice cream is made fresh daily, and Suzy Batlle’s shop in Little Havana sources ingredients for their desserts locally—the ruby red mamey comes from the Los Piñarenos fruit stand down the street, El Nuevo Siglo Grocery Store prepares the platanos maduros, and seasonal fruits and vegetables come from South Florida farmers' markets and growers in Redland, Florida.
