Good Cuban food is hard to find North of Miami, which is why is why Colada Shop is so special. Located over 1,000 miles away from Havana on T St, along the 14th street corridor, Colada Shop brings some of the best flavors of Cuba’s capital to ours. Croquetas, pastelitos, Cuban sandwiches, and coladas of course can all be found at this small but mighty eatery on T street.

Vibrant colors and flavors are synonymous with Cuba, and Colada Shop doesn’t fail to uphold that reputation. The guava & cheese pastelito is just as good as any that could be found in a kitchen or restaurant in Cuba, and the same can be said for the croquetas and colada shop Cuban.

With a colorful aesthetic, and food that’s just as vibrant, it’s hard not to feel as if you’re not in a shop in Miami or Cuba when you’re at Colada Shop. Luckily for us, colada is a ride share, brisk walk, or metro ride away instead of a flight.
