Cuban Culture and Karla Cuban Bakery: A Miami Tradition

May 28, 2022

There’s nothing else quite like Cuban culture. It’s a vibrant and energetic blend of the old and new, the tropical and the European, set against an island landscape that emphasizes beauty and a sense of joy in life.

It’s that special combination of experiences and backgrounds that Karla Cuban Bakery works to bring to Miami neighborhoods every day.

At Karla Cuban Bakery, we value our Cuban culture and traditions, and we make them part of the way we do business. It’s in the meals and delicacies we make, the coffee we serve, and the way our work is informed by the past.

We’re on a mission to spread the beauty and delight we experience every day. Karla Cuban Bakery is proud of our connection to the rich history and heritage of Cuba, and we make it part of our business.

A Piece of Cuba in the Neighborhood

What are the hallmarks of Cuban culture, the special flavor that sets it apart and makes it stand out, no matter where it’s encountered? For many people, it’s a certain way of living and a deep relish in the small pleasures that make up a life.

The Cuban lifestyle is an island culture, developed over centuries. It operates with the rhythm and sway of the Caribbean, and it’s often characterized by a sense of energy and forward motion, coupled with a savoring of the sights, scents, and flavors of the day.

A visit to one of Karla Cuban Bakery’s locations across Miami can be a way to experience Cuban culture in a local setting, just around the corner and ready to serve. We work to bring the energy of a Havana coffee shop to every one of our bakeries.

From the bright colors and beautiful décor to the personal touch we give to every order we fill and every guest we meet, we aim to make each trip to Karla Cuban Bakery a small Havana vacation.

A Menu of Favorites

Perhaps no aspect of Cuban folklore, tradition, and culture is more celebrated than the cuisine that developed over the centuries.

Cuban food came into being from convenience and availability. Colonial islands had to make do with local produce and whatever supplies made it to the settlements, and that forced Cuban culture to adapt the menu to best use what they had.

The result is a variety of dishes that reflect the region’s special circumstances and conditions. And it’s helped Karla Cuban Bakery develop a menu of local creations our guests crave.

We serve traditional favorites like sandwich Cubano, pan de Medianoche, and Revuelto con Jamon. And our pastelitos and cakes are customer favorites and can be just the thing to satisfy a sweet tooth.

Our menu draws from Cuban culture, and it’s helped us become a Miami institution.

Cuban Coffee

Ask anyone who’s tried it: Cuban coffee is an experience a person doesn’t forget. It’s a journey into rich, full-bodied flavors and can give the drinker the energy they need to power through the day and into the night.

Coffee is intertwined with Cuban culture and is part of the way Karla Cuban Bakery does business.

Every guest who comes into our bakeries is greeted with the warm, deep scents of delicious Cuban coffee, ground fresh and made to order. Cuban coffee can be the perfect accompaniment to our savory or sweet baked goods, and encourage people to stop and enjoy every sip and bite.

We’re a coffee-forward brand, and our footprint is growing. Our new brand of small-batch, premium coffee is sold in our stores now and is helping us create new customers every day.

At Karla Cuban Bakery, we take coffee seriously, and we work to bring the heritage and history of our culture into every bean we roast and grind.

Traditional Methods

An eye to Cuban culture guides everything we do at Karla Cuban Bakery. It informs our menu and décor, and it’s part of the way we approach our preparation.

Cuban recipes were often developed under adverse conditions and can require techniques that are learned only through years of experience. The people who can do it well come by that knowledge through hard work and an understanding of the culture itself, and that requires dedication to the craft.

Karla Cuban Bakery recognizes the need for this kind of specialized experience, and it’s what we bring to every kitchen.

We draw from a lifetime of tradition to make our baked goods. Our chefs have been immersed in Cuban baking history, and they use it as a foundation when they create our spicy, savory, and sweet creations.

It’s a deep sense of heritage that informs our business and helps us make every meal a special one.
