In addition to croquetas and cigars, Cubans know their way around coffee. Hence Miami's longstanding rep of serving some of the best caffeinated concoctions in the free world, from cortaditos to coladas to the subject of this list --- café con leche.

While America goes Starbucks, we go ventanilla and comedor. So here are the top ten cups of café con leche. Speaking Spanish at any of these joints helps, but you'll survive without it. Repeat after us: "Café con leche, por favor."

The best things are worth waiting for, and though you might have to endure a long line on a Saturday morning, this steamy, frothy cup of Cuban joe is worth it.

In Miami, Cuban bakeries are almost as ubiquitous as Starbucks outposts. Almost. But a few are better than the rest, and Karla fits the bill when it comes to Cuban coffee. The ladies behind the counter know how to coax that espresso machine into squeezing out a caffeinated nectar of the gods.

What a terrible "article". You did not even differentiate between any of the ten cafe con leches, which is ostensibly what this "piece" is about. Anyone can write down 10 random locations that serve cafe con leche and call it a 'best of'' list. 


Top notch work again, New Times.
