Buchito Cafe in Kissimmee, Florida

Marcela and I met up with a local friend to have a late breakfast at a spot he likes in downtown Kissimmee, Buchito Cafe. It wasn’t until we arrived that I thought about what a great name Buchito is.

It’s not often used, but it means “a sip.” So if you want a sip of someone’s drink, you ask for a buchito. Alright, enough with the Spanish lesson, let’s talk about Buchito Cafe, the shop.

Tony Fuentes, the owner, is Cuban, and his wife Elsa is Mexican. He’s originally from Miami and worked at Garcia’s Seafood Grille & Fish Market.

He was looking for a change and moved to Kissimmee, where he opened up Buchito in 2013. It’s mostly a breakfast place with some sandwiches. Of course, there’s Cuban coffee and desserts like flan.

What To Eat at Buchito Cafe?

I decided on a cortadito (the smaller, more potent version of a cafe con leche) with the Benny Cuban sandwich. The cortadito is on point, and the Benny Cuban sandwich was good.

The bread was nice & crusty and the pork was unreal. He later brought some of the pork in a little bowl for us to try; it was excellent. My only real issue was that they use mozzarella instead of Swiss.

His wife makes the desserts, and it should be no surprise that I ate the flan. It had a perfectly creamy texture and wasn’t as sweet as most Cuban flans. It had the best of both Cuban & Mexican flan worlds.

We were just a few shops down from a great antique mall called Lanier’s (108 Broadway, Kissimmee). Just wanted to give you a heads-up: if you purchase something at Lanier’s, you’ll get 10% off at Buchito Cafe.
