Fill your romantic getaway with delicious Cuban food, endless salsa dancing, quirky art galleries, and historic spots in Little Havana, the heart of Miami's Cuban diaspora!      

A social and cultural enclave named after the capital city of Cuba, Little Havana runs west Downtown and Brickell to Douglas Avenue, with the Miami River as its northern border and Coral Way to its south.

Encompassing several blocks of residential streets, a quick trip on foot takes you to its famous Art-Deco architecture, colorful street murals, and its distinctive sight, the giant statues of roosters, offering a constant celebration of Cuban heritage through Latin-inspired restaurants, bakeries, fruit stands, cigar shops, rum bars, art galleries, music venues, and a distinctly diverse Latin American flair that couples can't get enough of.

And who can blame them?

The "Latino" vibe ALWAYS has a SPARK of romance and Little Havana may be the game-changer you seek to uncover a different "multiverse" of the Miami fairytale-- with a side of fried plantains!  

Here are the top five date spots in Little Havana.

1) Start the morning romance with a strong cup of Cuban coffee at La Colada Gourmet 

1518 SW 8th St, Miami, FL 33135

Do you want to start the morning "strong" and full of love?

Experience delicious coffee AND traditions at La Colada Gourmet, the "House of Cuban Coffee," and share a space of authentic Sabor Cubano with your date within the vibrant community of Little Havana!

With a name honoring the famous Cuban coffee recipe, La Colada, La Colada Gourmet boasts more than 20 coffee concoctions based on traditional Cuban blends, each specifically crafted to enhance the flavor of La Colada Gourmet's espresso and derive its different notes.

2) Feel the vibrant energy of Calle Ocho

762 A SW 18th Ave, Miami, FL 33135

Can you even call it a Little Havana rendezvous without a trip to Calle Ocho?

Here's a spoiler alert — it's IMPOSSIBLE!

Welcome to Calle Ocho, the icing on top of Miami's little slice of Cuba!

With a sprinkling of shops featuring an array of hard-to-find Cuban delights, from hand-rolled cigars to guayabera shirts (fitting for the subtropical weather) and handmade souvenirs, Calle Ocho is the main thoroughfare of Little Havana, serving as an anchor to its social, cultural, and culinary scenes.

Explore the bright murals and colorful painted rooster sculptures along Calle Ocho-- your date won't get enough of this vibrant public art! 

Aside from its shopping, dining, and IG-worthy spots and public art, Calle Ocho hosts one of the largest annual street festivals in the world, the Calle Ocho Music Festival, which invites participants to create a spectacle of national pride by donning the flags or colors of their home country, playing a variety of Latin music, and selling popular food dishes from nations around the world. 

It's one big party waiting to happen, and you can't miss out on this experience when you go on a date in Little Havana!

3) Sweeten her day with dessert at Azucar Ice Cream - Little Havana

Do you want to know the secret to your woman's heart?

Feed her her favorite dessert, but make it UNFORGETTABLE!

Yes, lover, make it Azucar Ice Cream!

Azucar creates ice cream confections just like Abuela used to make, with only the highest quality ingredients and a desire to bring smiles to everyone's faces. 

Beat the Miami heat by indulging in a cup of Azucar ice cream in your fave flavor-- or maybe a new one?

Try any of their top 3 best sellers-- Abuela Maria (guava-based), Cafe Con Leche (coffee and Oreo-based), and Montecado (cinnamon, nutmeg, and egg-based).
