If you happen to be in Marathon at lunch time, stop by “Juice Paradise – Cuban Cafe” at the corner of 23rd street and Overseas Highway.

Juice Paradise – Cuban Cafe

We stopped there and had some of the best cuban sandwiches outside Miami. The “croqueta preparada” sandwich comes with a heaping serving of French fries right from the deep fryer. The sandwich itself is made of ham, slices of roast pork, Swiss cheese, croquettes on a super sized Cuban bread smothered in butter with a hint of mustard. One order was enough for the two of us. While there, ask for some of the very savory tropical fruit juices. I had a refreshing mango juice. Also available are guava, mamey, watermelon, pineapple, etc.
