Cuba Cuba Cafe & Bar: A Beautiful Cuban Hidden Gem Right Here in Denver

It's almost time for my annual trip to Miami, and I'm so excited to stuff myself with delicious Cuban food (and stone crab of course). However, there's a little piece of Cuban Miami right here in Denver. Right at 12th & Delaware is a beautiful hidden gem called Cuba Cuba Cafe & Bar (not the Sandwicheria, although those are under the same ownership). It's a wonderful little restaurant nestled inside two turquoise historic homes with a palm tree out front — and it feels just as authentic and homey on the inside as it looks on the outside.

This is hands-down one of my favorite restaurants in Denver. I love to come here on date night, with friends, or when I have visitors in town. Why? Because the mojitos are fantastic (and come in almost any flavor), the food is authentic and delicious, and the atmosphere makes you feel like you really are in Miami. I have also never had anything less than the friendliest service here.
