We enjoyed the pastalitos, croquettes, Cuban coffee, friendly people and the heritage that is being preserved so well.

This is a wonderful way to spend a few hours taking in the atmosphere ( for example Domino Park and " Mr one dollar peanuts ") shopping and restaurants ( they are not all Cuban - there is Argentinian, Mexican, Colombian etc). And of course there are the cigar shops where the cigars are hand - rolled in front of... More

Calle Ocho is the heart of Little Havana in Miami. The best Cuban cigars and coffee blends are sold here. The rooster can be seen in every corner. Their trash cans are painted beautifully and the place is bustling with activities every day. We even found an ice cream parlor with an ice cream flavor created especially for Fidel Castro.... More

Worth visiting for a slice of life experience. If you don't speak Spanish, you can still enjoy the experience and perhaps have Cuban coffee at one of the many coffee shops or lunch or dinner at a good Cuban restaurant. If you do speak Spanish you can have the same coffee and argue politics with the locals. This street gives... More

Indisputably the best coffee and Cuban cigars. Not much to see, in a restaurant I take a soup of malanga and I was served cold, bad and the worst Cuban sandwich I have eaten there. The street is dirty and there are many homeless.

We had high expectations for Little Havana, but a drive down Calle Ocho seemed like just another Hispanic neighborhood and left us saying "so what". Evidently it's a lot more lively during festivals and parades, but the rest of the time it's probably not worth the effort.

Calle ocho is a street where you can get a taste of Cuban culture, but there are no shows. There's one Friday of the month where in the evenings you can hear music and see exhibits, but that's it. You can purchase guayaveras and cigars and try Cuban food, but there are no shows unless you come during the 3... More

We went here with our tour bus. The Miami tour bus does Little havanna and Calle Ocho. A lot of Cuban culture. Worth a visit

Wow! My sister and I went to the sidewalk restaurant on the 50% off night. Even then it was spendy, but well worth it. Their virgin Margaritas are the same price as the regular alcohol ones, but were very tasty - just enormous. The lobster was wonderful.

Probably the most interesting part of Little Havana and a good opportunity to submerge yourself in the Cuban culture. Not far from downtown and worth your visit.
