Bakery

“The Miami institution has been the unofficial town hall for El Exilio since 1971. However, this Calle Ocho icon serves more than just cafecito. Its Cuban sandwich ($6.50), with classic fixings such as sweet ham and Swiss cheese, is a winner with the fast-casual crowd, and a traditional roast pork Cuban-style ($10.95) is a hearty meal served with rice and beans. But if you simply want to stop by the to-go window — AKA la ventanita — for croquetas, no one will judge you”

Café

“Casablanca Café, was built in 1927 for the Jova family. It was the first home constructed on Fort Lauderdale Beach and is the oldest remaining structure. South Florida doesn't have a lot of history so the very charm of this place makes it one of my favorites and someplace very special to me. It the first place I ate at when I was brought here for a job interview in 1997 and having lunch on the Ocean was love at first sight and I never went back. Even if you have to wait a bit, you're on the beach so you have some time to get those selfies before you dine. Even if your sitting inside, take a walk around the inside bar area and upstairs. Oh, the food is good and not expensive. I like the grille shrimp caesar salad.”
