Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

(To the tune of Adam Sandler's Lunch Lady Land)

Open up at 6 a.m.
Got on my sage green polo
Served croquetas de jamon
Con un poco de amor
Got no clue why we sell gallon jugs of milk
Just know everything's doing fine
Down here at the Publix Cafe stand

Yes I wear this net on my head
Porque food safety standards apply
I wear these clear disposable gloves
It's all for your peace of mind
You want your morning joe and tostada
But there's no reason to bark
Everybody gets their comida
Down here at the Publix Cafe stand

Cafe con leche, cafe con leche, cafe con leche, cafe con leche
fruit salad, fruit salad, fruit salad, fruit salad
Cafe con leche, cafe con leche
Fruit salad, fruit salad
Pan Cubano
Pastelito, past', pastelito
Pastelito, past', pastelito
Pastelito, past', pastelito
Pastelito, past', pastelito


Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
