Lookin for a place post airport for cuban coffee and pastries. The more authentic the better, also... Is there a Cuban "area" in Orlando?

    The best spot I know of is Ya Ya's right off of 436 south of 50. I believe the street it is on is called Hewett Dr. They have great pastries and cafe lattes. Plus cakes and sandwiches too.

        Sounds very promising! Does anyone know of any other options?

            Is Kana a coffee shop where you can sit down and have a cup or is it a buy-the-bag retail store?

            not a coffee joint specifically, but rincon cuban cafeteria on forsyth, just past university blvd., is my favorite place for cuban food. i love their cuban coffee, and especially, their breakfast sandwiches: amanacer cubano!!

              I've been meaning to try this place for a while. SJ gave it a good review a while back.

                hey glowworm, my name is Troy lee and I have seen you around on the message boards looking for good Cuban coffee. I used to own Roho Cuban Coffee in downtown Orlando and I now roast for Kaña Cuban Coffee. I know you were one of our customers and I have a pound or two of free coffee for you whenever you would like to stop by our roastery. We are at 62 w illiana street suite c. It is 1 block south of Orange Ave and Michigan intersection. Here is the link to google map http://www.google.com/search?source=i...

                Looking forward to meeting you.

                  Cool and thanks! I will come by--I saw the web page for your place but I wasn't sure if it was a "walk up to the door" retail kind of place or not.
