Head to this beloved Cuban joint out west the next time you're hung-over or hungry and in need of caffeine. There are few better cures for either than Cuban coffee and hot croquetas. Opened in 1977 by Raul and Amelia Garcia, Islas Canarias has earned its spot as one of the best cafecitas — those adorable Cuban coffee shop/bakeries — in Miami-Dade County. That's mostly thanks to the restaurant's reputation for affordable croquetas and perfect, piping-hot cafecito. Even on weekdays, the place is often packed with people chowing down on the kitchen's made-to-order beef or chicken empanadas, medianoche sandwiches, pan con bistec, and those famous ham croquetas. Insider tip: Be prepared to wait for a table if you arrive Saturday or Sunday morning, but if you're in a hurry, there's a drive-thru.
