While we all love Versailles and La Carreta, especially at the airport after a long flight, there are many neighborhood ventanitas that stand out from the rest. These are the ones I personally frequent the most, all for different reasons. 

JennyLee Molina founded 3:05 Cafecito, proclaiming 3:05 as Miami’s official coffee break time. She has worked with Nespresso, Starbucks and Cafe La Llave on partnership campaigns and continues to celebrate our love for all things 305 and cafecito. Look out for the 5th Annual 305 Day Festival produced by 3:05 Cafecito on Sunday, Mar. 4 in the Leah Arts District.

Mary’s Coin Laundry

Mary's Coin Laundry (and ventanita)
