Latin American Cafeteria Mary Brickell Village?

  • 3

My husband and I will be in Miami next month - business trip. Staying on Brickell. He wants to have a Cuban sandwich/Cuban food one night. He also hates to drive in Miami. The concierge at the hotel said that a Latin American Cafeteria (Cafe?) has opened in Mary Brickell Village. But I can't find any information about it. Anyone here know anything about it - ever eaten there? Is it related to the old Latin American Cafeteria (we used to live in Miami)? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks. Robyn

  1. I'm not familiar with that area, but the classic Latin American Cafeteria of some fame was on Coral Way and demolished after the hurricane. This site claims the original has been re-opened at a nearby location and it is not too far from where you are talking about, but definitely not in MB Village.

    If you lived in Miami you know there are dozens of "Latin American" cafe, cafeteria, restaurant, or just plain LA with no relation to each other. I never quite figured out why, perhaps the LA name was enough to let people know what they had, because they all have similar offerings.

    1. The service is slow, but I think the food is good. They added a bar concept though - to cater to the nightlife crowd since it's open 24 hours.

      Btw, it might be easier to find it if you look for the Chicken Kitchen in Brickell. It's behind the 800 Brickell building. I hope that helps.
