Grab a Cup of Cuban Coffee and Pastelitos at Colada Shop near The Kenmore Apartments

  |     |   Uncategorized

Authentic Cuban coffee, cocktails, and cuisine. That’s what you can expect at Colada Shop, not far from our Chevy Chase apartments, along with friendly conversation and a welcoming setting. The team at Colada Shop seeks to recreate the best aspects of Cuban culture, including the heavy emphasis on socializing as part of mealtime.

To that end, strong cups of coffee and strong cocktails flow all day long at the colorful, lively local restaurant. If you opt to stop in for breakfast, order a hot or cold colada—a mix of four shots of espresso and sweet Cuban crema—to enjoy alongside a breakfast sandwich or a few pastelitos. The breakfast sammy comes stuffed with eggs, cheese, and your choice of protein (like mojo pork) on Cuban bread, while the Caribbean pastries known as pastelitos are packed with guava, sweet cream cheese, and other sweet or savory ingredients. If you come by for lunch or dinner, dig into a sandwich or a basket of empanadas with the signature piña colada or a mojito. Empanadas feature fillings such as beef, chicken, or spinach and cheese, and there’s always a seasonal option. When it comes to sandwiches, of course, there’s the Colada Shop Cuban with ham, slow-roasted pork, cheese, and cilantro aioli.
