The Best Cuban Food In Washington, D.C.

There's Spanish-style hot chocolate, churros and more at the D.C. restaurant

"Coffee? Cocktails? Something fried? Colada Shop excels at all three," Washington Post critic Tom Sietsema says of the all-day café. And now, the casual corner resto is giving you an even better reason to spend your day there, thanks to a new menu that checks off the boxes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Fuel up with a cup of Cuban coffee and an avocado tostada, then head back for lunch and try the Elena Ruth sandwich, a sweet-and-savory combo of roast turkey with cream cheese and strawberry jam that's layered on a sweet roll. Lighter options like the Cienfuegos Cobb with mojo-marinated turkey make it easy to forget you're eating something that's actually good for you.

Come happy hour, sit back with a Havana Sparkle (white rum, ginger syrup and sparkling wine) or booze-free drinks like the Good for You Mojito smoothie, which makes the most of coconut water and fresh mint.

And about that fried part—Colada Shop's newly launched crispy churros taste best when dunked into thick, Spanish-style hot chocolate.
