There are few better cures for a pounding head and aching conscience than Cuban coffee and croquetas. This Cuban joint in West Dade has won our Best Of for both Café con Leche and croquetas, so you know they've got their staples down pat. Their fritas win rave reviews, too, and did we mention they have a drive-through? So you can stay safely ensconsed in your car and avoid a hunger-fueled walk of shame.
