Latin Café 2000 has long been recognized in the community for serving large portions of Cuban-inspired dishes. The restaurants’ signature dishes include the Cuban sandwich, Desayuno Tradicional (traditional Cuban breakfast) and the Palomilla (thin-cut, juicy steak). For the health-conscious, the restaurants also offer the ‘El Cubanito Saludable’ or ‘The Healthy Cuban,’ which presents lower calorie meals. The Brickell location also boats a curated cocktail menu featuring standouts such as the Classic Floridita Daiquiri, prepared with Havana Club, lime juice, cane sugar and a dash of Maraschino Liquor; the Malecon Mule prepared with Havana Club, guava nectar, fresh lime and topped with ginger beer; the Watermelon Mojito with Bacardi Superior Rum, fresh mint and house-made watermelon juice; and the Café con Leche cocktail.
In 1998, a unique market niche for a fusion between Latin cuisine and Miami culture was envisioned. The number “2000” that you see at the end of our name, signified a new era of Latin Cafeterias. We loved the all of the small Cuban cafeterias that were scattered throughout Miami and we wanted to develop something similar, just a little bit bigger and better. We have also always believed that everyone deserves good, high quality, food, at reasonable prices and a friendly warm greeting every time they walk through our doors. We succeeded in creating an authentic eating experience, by offering everyone a taste of our Culture. . . a little Taste of Cuba ™ Because of it’s authentic meals, distinct look, and enhanced quality of products and service, the concept was an immediate success.
We were so excited by the success of our first location, on LeJeune, that we opened up two additional locations in Hialeah and Biscayne, shortly thereafter. Now that we had created an environment that fused where we came from, with the vibrant city that we now call home, we were ready to evolve our concept into what we hoped could bring a fully immersive Cuban experience to Miami. After months of research, we took inspiration from Cuban architectucture, colors, and decor and came up with a fresh and modern tropical look that we feel embodies the spirit of Cuba. The most recent concept boasts Cuba’s rich colors and unique architecture, along with the same flavorful cuisine that you’ve grown to love. Inside, the decor includes period inspired furniture, retro-inspired barstools and channel back booths, a Cuban tile wall-art installation, and polished brass accents throughout. Topping the space off, is a massive tropical living wall that creates an oasis right in the heart of Brickell.
We are excited to see how our concept continues to evolve and look forward to exceptionally serving all of our customers.
In 1998, the vision was to create a unique market niche for an upscale restaurant featuring Latin-American cuisine. We succeeded in obtaining board market appeal and strong repeat patronage by serving high quality food at very reasonable prices in a pleasant, upscale environment with a distinct look and enhanced quality of products and service. Today, we are proud to be Miami’s leading restaurant franchise offering the best Cuban fare in an exciting, tropical, and entertaining environment.
