Los Pinarenos Fruteria

Cuban in Little Havana

    Perfect for
  • Classic Establishment
  • Outdoor/Patio Situation
  • Serious Take-Out Operation
  • Walk-Ins

Los Pinarenos is a Calle Ocho institution, and a classic Cuban-style fruit stand specializing in Caribbean produce, including many fruits and vegetables grown by the owners. Los Pinarenos is also the place to grab some of the freshest juices in Little Havana (just know that it’s cash only). Despite the fact that every restaurant in Little Havana has one of those giant orange squeezing machines, Los Pinarenos’ freshly squeezed orange juice is the best. However, don’t leave without getting the guarapo. The sugar cane is pressed to order, and if you think sugar cane juice is just sugar water, think again. Los Pinarenos’ guarapo is complex, a bit grassy, and even slightly creamy—it’s sugar in its most natural state.
