La ventana (aka the coffee window in restaurants) is where everyone gathers in Miami to enjoy coffee and Cuban snacks (pastries, croquetas & empanadas) while discussing the day’s news. This Cuban Box brings the ventana experience to your home. These Ham Croquetas are perfect for breakfast, with your afternoon coffee, or lunch.
Since its founding in 1975, family-owned Sergio’s has become a Miami institution for its authentic Cuban cuisine. Locals line up every morning at the ventana (window) for a cafecito and guava pastry, and come lunchtime they crowd in for some of the region’s best croquetas, empanadas, and ropa vieja. Sergio’s is a woman-founded, third generation family-owned restaurant serving typical Cuban dishes based on old family recipes infused with American culture.
