Miami-Dade County Commissioner Sally Heyman Opens Coffee Brake - A Mobile Cafe On Wheels

What do you get when you cross a politician and a dream? No, the answer isn't a sleeping liar. If you're talking Sally Heyman, you get Coffee Brake, a motorized coffee shop on wheels. Sally says "I've been talking about doing this since I was in the legislature. I had two sick parents I had to take care of, then I had back surgery, but I finally did it, and I'm so happy, it's so much fun."

Sally is the commissioner for District 4, which encompasses 13 cities in northeastern Dade. She got the idea for Coffee Brake from the active food cart scene in the Pacific Northwest. Heyman says "I'm cheaper than Dunkin' Donuts by 50 cents, and this month we're donating a quarter to the Miami Children's Museum. I wanna bring great coffee to Miami."
