Tinta Y Café is a traditional Cuban café that serves its Little Havana neighborhood well. Centrally located on Calle Ocho, this diminutive eatery offers little in the way of parking or seating, but doesn’t skimp on flavor. The café con leche – offered warm or on ice – is a must, and the rest of the menu isn’t far behind. Look for classic Cuban sandwiches, empanadas and flan, plus sought-after croquettes offered with ham, spinach and bacalao (cod). The interior mimics a library and patrons are encouraged to take down a Spanish-language book and enjoy with their coffee, though the volume is much higher than you’d expect at a quiet place of reading. Thanks to its location in the heart of Little Havana, Tinta y Café offers a nice spot to savor a cup and do some great people watching.
