When Nayelis Delisle came to Miami from Cuba in 2005, she found the city beautiful but lacking one basic need: a Cuban coffee shop.
“I wanted a place where I could sit down and have a Cuban coffee and just a few other items, preferably vegan options,” she says. “Not a full restaurant with a ventanita, but a coffee shop with all types of Cuban coffee.”
In 2017, she announced to her husband, Manny Lopez, she intended to open a coffee shop. Within a year, they had scrimped and saved enough to open Suite Habana Café in Wynwood.
