The aroma of café cubano wafts through the air at the corner of Sixth Street and Euclid Avenue in South Beach. It is coming from the take-out window of Las Olas Cafe, where for years the locals have lined up each morning for their steamy cups of coffee, empanadas, freshly squeezed juices, and breakfast specials.
The last brings choice of eggs cooked any style, with home fries or french fries, buttered Cuban toast, and a cup of café cubano (or a small juice). The price: $3.99. Cash only. That's all you need to know.
