Cortadito Coffee House Brings Authentic Cuban “Little Window” to Miracle Mile

Cortadito Coffee House Brings Authentic Cuban “Little Window” to Miracle Mile

The 10-year deal is located at 200 Miracle Mile, on the South west corner of Ponce de Leon Boulevard and Miracle Mile, where Cortadito Coffee House  will occupy 2,200 square feet.

Cortadito Coffee House, the beloved ventanita-style coffee house known for its exquisite Cuban coffee and food, has already made a name for itself in South Florida with locations on Lincoln Road, Brickell and Washington Ave.

As one of the largest property owners on Miracle Mile, Terranova seeks to deliver tenants who are industry leaders and trend setters that will position the four-block, pedestrian-friendly retail district as a  thriving destination.

As part of VE Restaurant Group’s  portfolio, Cortadito Coffee House has  experienced  a wildfire expansion since opening its first location on Lincoln Road in 2020. 

Cortadito Coffee House began as an idea: to create a ventanita unlike any other.

Ventanita means “little window,” and Miami has seen a plethora of ventanita’s serving hot Cuban coffee since the 1960s.

To make itself unique, Cortadito Coffee House incorporated food stations onto its menu, providing options such as pastelitos, sandwiches and completa bowls with classic Cuban delicacies on top: ropa vieja, roasted pork, black beans and maduros.

This addition transformed a typical ventanita into an immersive dining experience; Cortadito Coffee House has thrived on this concept since it was founded.

In the last few decades, Miracle Mile has evolved from an underdeveloped commercial strip with potential to become a high-end outdoor shopping destination that brings in South Florida.

In the spring of 2016, Miracle Mile underwent a streetscape revival, which included wider sidewalks, the removal of curbs, and added greenery to make the strip even more pedestrian-friendly, catering to shops as well as restaurants with outdoor dining options.
