Miami Restaurant Spotlight: Tinta y CafeJuly 16, 2015
Tinta y Café is owned and operated by the Santamarina family. They went into this adventure with having no experience in the restaurant industry. They took a leap of faith, and opened the business in hopes they would make it a success.
That leap of faith has paid off. Tinta y Café has been established for 5 years, and continues to grow each day as one of Miami’s most exciting dining options.
They serve up amazing Cuban cuisine, including cadecito, croquetas, and pastelitos. The atmosphere of Tinta y Café is warm and inviting. The decor and service will make you feel right at home. They have a variety of sandwiches and salads, which are highly anticipated by those who frequently stop in at Tinta y Café.
They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. You will see a busy crowd during the morning, and again at lunch. Those who work 9 to 5 in the Brickell area, stop in to fill up on a wholesome breakfast before conquering the day.
You will find daily specials, which includes a new soup offering each day. These specials have included Bistec en Cazuela, which is beef that is sautéed in a tomato sauce, bell peppers and onions. You have two options when it comes to daily specials. You can choose a small or regular sized portion.
Try the Tinta y Café sandwich, which is prosciutto and is piled high with pulled pork and caramelized onions. This sandwich is served on a baguette slice. They also have a Tapas Bar, which comes highly recommended as well.
