Monica spent her summers with her Papi in Cuban cafe's in Miami. She remembers it being "like walking into a Cuban-American episode of Cheers." She overheard witty banter while eating delicious pastelitos and sandwiches. Papi's meal wouldn't be complete without a cafecito perfectly sweetened with *espumita.
Fast forward way past the 90's, Monica and Joshua decided that they wanted to recreate that vibe in Toronto wrapped up in a small party big vibe package. Joshua says, "we didn't want Little Havana Café to be just another coffee truck. Four years ago we made a conscious choice to be as authentic as possible to the Cuban culture while choosing sustainable and organic ingredients when we can."
Monica adds "With the build Bodega, we wanted people to feel like they're walking into a living room. All of the furniture is either a sidewalk treasure or vintage. We really want to make an effort to lighten our footprint while being true to what we do - make great coffee, create a whole vibe and be a place where people can experience a little piece of Cuban culture."
They have old family photo's lining the walls, Cuban coffee recipes, hip hop inspired books and accessories, eco-friendly gifts and Caribbean, Latin and Spanish pantry items to pay homage to all things they both love and so much more.
THE COFFEE is super bueno. Espresso based Cuban style coffee will bring a little more joy to your day. They key ingredient is *Espumita. It's makes Cuban coffee what it is (besides the love and music when it's made). Espumita is cane sugar whipped and caramelized into a frothy cream then added to espresso.
Tell me you don't want some of dis.

We've partnered with Amigo Skate
Help us give back!
Giving back is a huge part of what we do as a company. We're excited to announce that we've partnered with Amigo Skate and with every purchase of any Cubita product you can support at-risk Cuban youth and artists directly!
From Amigo Skate:
Cuba’s skate scene was born in the 1980s when Russian soldiers left their skateboards with a few determined street kids. Those kids never gave up, but now, with no skate shops in Cuba, it's nearly impossible to obtain boards and other essential supplies.
Breaking a board often means going months without a replacement—when this happens, they call them “the dark months.” The only options then are trying to repair the broken board with a spare piece of screwed-on wood or hoping for someone to bring one from abroad. Needless to say, ordering online and shipping to Cuba are not options at this point.
Unfortunately, reaching out to other charities, churches, and government officials for support has not been helpful. As a result, Amigo Skate’s members have been "the Robin Hoods of Havana” by taking the initiative to provide materials and donations to skaters and artists who need them.
Our goal has always been to provide young people with an outlet for self-expression. An essential part of what we do to pursue that goal is collecting unwanted or broken equipment.
Over the years, we have gathered a variety of action sports gear, music instruments, art supplies, and, of course, skating goods. We refurbish, rebuild, and recycle materials like used decks, wheels, hardware, grip tape, and trucks.
From there, we give those back to skaters and artists wherever and whenever we see a need.
