The first La Carreta was founded in Little Havana’s famous Calle Ocho in 1976. After Cuba’s political take-over of 1959, a large and growing number of Cubans in exile moved to Miami in search of a community akin to that of their homeland. Out of the growing demand for an authentic cultural hub, La Carreta was born. As a Cuban family owned establishment, it continues to be a staple of the old Cuba’s family dinning traditions of “abuela style” food and famously authentic Cuban espresso. With more than 9 locations, thousands of Miami locales and tourists are served our authentic Cuban food and coffee daily. Many of which come together in celebration of cultural achievements and collective Cuban camaraderie.
