The Cuban Corner Rockville

A Taste of Cuba in Rockville (PHOTOS)

With all of the growing attention on Cuba I thought it would be a good idea to check out a local shop with a little Cuban flare. The Cuban Corner in Rockville will give you a taste of Cuba without having to leave Montgomery County. Tres Leches Cake The Cuban Corner

I had my first taste of Cuban coffee while I was working on a story in Miami last year. I was a little confused when I was given such a small serving, that I ordered another cup just to get my morning coffee fix. I later realized that Cuban coffee is quite strong and sweet so there was no need for a second cup. I am a huge coffee fan so I’m always excited to try new types of coffee.

I didn’t want to ruin my dinner so I only tried the coffee and tres leches cake. Both were delicious and I got my coffee to go since I had to beat the 6 p.m. rush hour on the beltway. The interior of The Cuban Corner was friendly and quaint. The owner, Joaquin, was happy to talk to me about a little of Cuban history given the recent news of President Obama’s planned trip to the island nation next week. He wasn’t shy about sharing his opinion either!The Cuban CornerThe Cuban Corner
