Azucar’s Coffee a taste beyond compare

Azucar is a great Cuban restaurant on Del Prado Boulevard in Cape Coral. They have incredible breakfast specials and an amazing bakery. Their very best feature, in my opinion, is the Cuban Coffee, listed on the menu as Cafe con Leche.


The best Cuban Coffee in SWFL.

The coffee topped with steamed milk is a smooth, rich, full flavored blend with a slight smokey, caramel flavor.

Their cafe con leche reminds me of the summer I spent in Merida, Venezuela as a student. We drank cup after cup in the shady common area enjoying the cool mountain breezes feeling young and fabulous.

Venezuelan coffee has a smooth rich flavor and is generally considered  to be among the best coffees in the world. In fact, Merida is also a market name for Venezuelan coffee with sweet flavor notes.

After tasting some of the best coffees in the Western Hemisphere. I can honestly say the cafe con leche at Azucar ranks among the very best.

It’s been years since I sat in the student common area. A sip of a cafe con leche from Azucar helps the time and distance slip away.

I recommend visiting Azucar mid morning, it’s a quite time for the business and a great time to have a quite moment for yourself as well.

I always order the Cuban Sunrise breakfast for $4.95. Three eggs, hash browns, a choice of bacon or ham, Cuban bread toast with guava jelly and of course Cuban Coffee. You won’t be disappointed.

    My sister and brother in law spend their winters in Florida and pretty close to Cape Coral, too! I’ll have to let them know about this place, they’re always looking for something new and different and they love their coffee!

    Having grown up in Broward County, I was raised on Cuban food! I adore it. I can’t wait to plan a trip back home-its been almost fifteen years.
