In Effort To Attract Younger Customers, Versailles Unveils “Mamey Spice Latte”

Versailles unveiled a uniquely Cuban take on the popular Pumpkin Spice Latte, a “Mamey Spice Latte“, which owner King Louis XIV of France believes will attract a younger and more diverse group of customers to Miami’s landmark restaurant.”We were terribly upset by the recent real report that Miami was only ranked the eight best coffee city in the Country by ~~The New York Times~~, falling behind well known coffee shit holes like Washington D.C. and Chicago,” said Louis XIV. “We realized that Miami’s problem isn’t that the coffee is bad, it’s that unless you are one of the elderly cigar smoking men who stand outside of our ventanitas all day to discuss right wing politics and comment on the bodies of every woman who approaches, the Miami coffee experience isn’t very friendly.”


Chef Omar Montero declares, “La Santa Taqueria is a very authentic Mexican concept based on tacos and tacqueria to show how Mexicans really eat in Mexico City.” They’ve done a great job with presenting a modern looking yet cozy Mexican restaurant with wrap around outdoor patio seating and modern Mexican food. I love the wall along the bar filled with colorful Mexian cookie cutters. It’s just a fun place to hang with kids, friends, a new date or your loved one. It’s in Little River District at the Ebb & Flow newish development.
