Miami Fusion Café
Miami Fusion Café is a restaurant specializing in Puerto Rican, Cuban and Dominican cuisine located in the former Cameo Cafe building at 2015 5th Avenue North. The restaurant, a successor to the Miami Café in Pelham and Miami Café Xpress in Hoover, is known for its "CariMaki" Caribbean-inspired fusion sushi rolls and for its "Jesus cake", a tres leches cake.
Luis and Samantha Delgado opened the restaurant on May 22, 2017 with help from chef Juan Beras and Luis' stepfather Bruce Hammer. In 2019 they inaugurated the El Conquistador food truck and announced plans to expand with a tiki bar at 2017 5th Avenue and an event hall spanning both buildings upstairs. The 2020 Coronavirus pandemic put downtown expansion plans on hold.
