Miami Coppelia is inspired by the famous ice cream palace in Havana that goes by the same name (minus the Miami part, of course). Cuban ice cream parlors have their own scoop lingo, unique flavors, and special preparations, and this Flagami spot continues those traditions. The space is nowhere near as grand as the original in Cuba, but the decor will definitely remind you of what kind of ice cream you’re about to have—everything is either red, white, or blue, which are the colors of the Cuban flag. 

Here, you can expect to find flavors like mamey, guanábana (soursop), guava, moscatel (rum raisin), malta, pineapple and mandarin, and much more. A single scoop here is referred to as a soldado (soldier), two scoops are jimaguas (twins), and three scoops are tres gracias (three graces). If you’re really feeling gluttonous, go for the ensalada, which is basically a giant ice cream “salad” (basically 5 scoops in a bowl). Or you can mix things up by getting a special sundae, like the copa lolita: two scoops of ice cream over flan. Almost any ice cream you order here is finished with a dusting of Maria cookie crumbs, whipped cream, maraschino cherries, and a lady finger, but you can also ask for chocolate syrup and sprinkles.
