Speaking at the iconic Miami restaurant and perpetual presidential campaign stop, the Versailles Cafe on "Calle Ocho," GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain spoke to about 200 supporters, mostly Latino, on a range of issues including one important foreign policy issue, Cuba.

" Freedom for Cuba now," Cain said in response to remarks from the crowd about the communist nation.

"We should continue pressure on Castro," Cain said. "But I also believe the best way to get a solution is to talk to people who know most about the issue."

Cain also brought up his infamous 9-9-9 economic plan but called it "nueve-nueve -nueve," which resulted in laughter and cheers from the crowd. The presidential hopeful also drank a cup of strong Cuban coffee and a croqueta – a fried Cuban delicacy of potatoes and meat.

"How do you say delicious in Cuban?" Cain asked the crowd. 

Cain has two more campaign stops in South Florida including a rally in West Palm Beach Wednesday evening.
