Cuban coffee may keep Miamians running, but it’s the croqueta that keeps us happy.

With Burger Beast’s Croquetapalooza hitting the Magic City Casino today, Yelp is rounding up classic Cuban spots for that do this treat right.

Don’t forget your crackers!

Islas Canarias Restaurant

“We started, of course, with croquetas. While they are still the best croquetas in Miami, the chicken and fish croquetas are not as good as the ham. The ham croquetas continue to be the best I’ve ever had.” Yelper Robert F.


El Brazo Fuerte Bakery

“I used to come to this bakery all the time when I was in high school. Today I was in the area and decided to stop by and have a pastelito and croqueta… The croquetas were just as good. 20 years and still kicking butt.” Yelper Emily H.


La Suiza Bakery

“One word… delicious! Me and my family have been buying our pastelitos and croquetas there for 25 years! The taste and quality have never changed… If you haven’t been there before, then you haven’t had the best!” Yelper Jennifer H.


Palomilla Grill

“I’m in love with the croquetas here. My favorite are the ropa vieja croquetas. Stewed beef with Cuban seasonings in a croqueta! So delicious! The buffalo chicken and chorizo are also very good.” Yelper Jorge M.


Latin American Bakery & Cafe

“Croquetas are homemade, which is a must in the 305 now. Nice cracker meal crust and the filling is well blended so that there are no chunks. It is a Cuban style croqueta which means that it is very meaty and has less bechamel than the Spanish variety. Very flavorful. Your abuelita would approve!” Yelper Heidi M.
