Sabor Miami Cafe

Sabor Miami Cafe and Gallery, a Latin-inspired eatery, opened in Old Brooklyn this winter. The owner had briefly taken over Cafe Miami just a mile away, but left to fully dedicate a cafe to her roots.
The bright and cheery exterior is matched by its interior. The playful and colorful decor is busy, but charming.
A section of the menu is dedicated to "Coffee Therapy" so of course Mr. H had to order a Mayan Mocha (espresso with blend of milk) to start,
I started with a Coconut Lemonade. It was a touch too sweet for my personal taste, but Mr. H happily drank most of it. The shaved coconut on top was a nice touch.
Mr. H had been to Sabor Miami Cafe before and had the Cuban sandwich during his first visit, so this time he ordered the "burger" version of the Cuban. He liked it, but I think nothing can beat the traditional preparation.
So, of course, that's what I had to get.
The Sandwich Cubano had pork roast, sweet ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, mayo and mustard ($8.99). It's also served with this wonderful spicy sauce on the side, which reminded me of a spicy thousand islands dressing. I'm no aficionado, but this was a pretty good Cuban sandwich, in my opinion. I'll be ordering it again.

The owner sent us home with a guava and cheese pastry, since it was Sweetest Day. I thought that was very kind of her. She clearly has a lot of passion and love for what she's doing there, and I think it shows in the food and decor.

Thank You for the visit and the great review!! I just want to clarify that the Frita Burger is a version of the Cuban Frita (Cuban Hamburger) not of the Cuban Sandwich. The Classic Frita is the Chorizo and Ground Beef Pattie with potato sticks on a bun, our version have the pineapple, lettuce, tomato, sautéed onions and is served with a side of tostones fries.
