Free Cafecito or Pastelito at CAO Bakery & Café with your Hurricane Dorian Donation

“Only in Miami” would you get a free pastelito or cafecito with your donation benefitting the island nation of the Bahamas who was recently a victim of Mother Nature.

Since Miami was fortunately spared the worst of Hurricane Dorian, we should all have plenty of newly purchased emergency supplies that we can offer to those who need it the most — unless you ate all your snacks!

But in any case, we know the South Florida community has a soft spot for those affected by hurricanes and we all feel a strong sense of responsibility to help those in need.

The Bahamas have been devastated and we are dedicated to helping our neighbors less than 200 miles away. CAO Bakery & Café and 305 Cafecito have teamed up to help as much as possible in partnership with Global Empowerment Mission who will get the supplies out to the Bahamas directly.

Please drop off any of the following items at one of our four participating locations throughout South Florida and receive a complimentary cafecito or pastelito courtesy of CAO Bakery.

  • Water

We Reviewed Nespresso's Cafecito De Cuba and Here is What We Thought

We Reviewed Nespresso's Cafecito De Cuba and Here is What We Thought

We love a good Cuban cafecito… so much so that we founded Miami’s official coffee break time at appropriately 3:05 p.m. Born and raised in Miami, there is never a shortage of Cuban style coffee. So when we heard about Nespresso bringing real Cuban coffee beans to the United States for the first time in 50 years, we were shaking with excitement! (Or maybe that was just the caffeine jitters but YES, exciting indeed!)
