Colada Shop brings people together by transporting them into a space where conversation is flowing, strong coffee is brewed, food & cocktails are made with the flare of Cuban flavor and life. Coladas and conversation go hand in hand.
Food and Beverage Director and Partner Mario Monte’s love for food is as diverse as his background. He is a product of two immigrant parents whose individual backgrounds led to his love for authenticity and richness of flavor. At a young age, he would often experiment with his Italian mother in the kitchen, who taught him the essentials of simplicity and bold Italian flavors. His father taught him the island vibes of the Pearl of the Caribbean, Cuba. He was exposed to both cultures while growing up in Venezuela. Mario draws on the rich culture of his youth for his extensive knowledge of food, culture and history.
In 2016, he partnered with Daniella Senior to create Colada Shop, a Cuban eatery serving Cuban food, coffee and cocktails. This award winning eatery has become a favorite of the Washington DC metro area, with two locations and a third on its way.
