For most people, it’s just not a functioning morning until a cup of joe has been consumed. But sometimes, you may not want to take a trip to Starbucks for a grande mocha latte. In South Florida, there are plenty of good coffee shops, but these will really tickle your taste buds.

It’s a staple for any politician who wants to get elected in Florida to head over to Versailles to shake hands with the people over some coffee. Versailles is located in Little Havana and politicos and stars alike crave the attention of approval of Versailles customers and all of them rave about the coffee and the bakery, so it’s one you should definitely check out.

Cafe Demetrio

300 Alhambra Circle
Coral Gables, FL 33134
(305) 448-4949

Located near the center of Coral Gables, Café Demetrio has a relaxed atmosphere with a smorgasbord of different latte and coffee choices. It’s quiet enough that you can have a great conversation inside, or enjoy your cup o joe on the patio. It may not have the luxuries you look for in some restaurants and other places, but much like a star athlete, Café Demetrio just has the “it” factor.

Puerto Sagua

700 Collins Ave
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 673-1115

Located on South Beach, Puerto Sagua is both a Cuban restaurant and great home to some serious Cuban coffee. It’s been open since 1968 and is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s a great hangout after your club trip or place to start your evening. Just remember, a shot of Cuban coffee will do you. If you drink the whole cup, good luck with trying to sleep…for the rest of the week.

El Tamarindo Cafe

Offering a more formal atmosphere, El Tamarindo Café is a great restaurant also known as a great place to enjoy some coffee. You can enjoy some fine wine and some of the best service in the area. Just sit back, stretch out, and enjoy the coffee and food at El Tamarindo.

News Cafe

News Café

800 Ocean Drive
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 538-6397

Open 24 hours a day, News Café is a café-restaurant, bar, and newsstand located so close to the water that you can almost fish in the Atlantic Ocean from there. Opened in 1988, News Café remains one of the most popular hangouts on Miami Beach. And if coffee isn’t your thing on a hot day at the beach, check out the ice creams and sorbet or a nice cup of frozen yogurt to cool you off in the stifling sun.

    well, Miami is covered. What about the rest of South Florida?


    the news cafe is so overated… your reporter did not bother to research a story the should be fun to cover…

  • LEM

    not one of these is a true coffee shop so I wonder if the reporter knew what he or she was looking for

  • T.L

    Really? Very disappointing list…little or no research actually went into this “report.”

  • lena

    Cafe Demetrio is very good. I hate for my favorite places to become too popular so I won’t add additional places.

  • Tony Sporano

    Versailles completely sucks. The only reason that place is known is because it is popular among the Cuban community. Everytime there is news revolving around Cuba people rush to Versailles to portray their incomptencies. There are better places that you can enjoy Cuban coffee and Cuban food than Versailles.

  • Krystle

    Wow…terrible list. The author of this article should really investigate what the term “coffee shop” really means. If you want the best coffee in Miami in a real coffee shop do yourself a favor and head on over to Panther Coffee in Wynwood.

  • CoffeeGirl

    This list is a joke. There are so many great unique coffee shops. Looks like the reporter waited to the last minute and google a few places. Such a waste of a good opportunity.

  • CoffeeGuy

    wow, horrible someone just google coffee in Miami. What about Panther coffee or Pasion de Cielo. Why not just list stabucks locations!
