Miami Bakery

Perfect for breakfast, or a midday snack, this charming Cuban eatery is simply bursting with flavor! They also have outdoor seating, which equals great lighting for photos. Look for their chicken special with beans, rice, and plantains. Their generous portions of rich, savory white meat are so tender they fall right off the bone with a pleasant earthy aroma, and offer an amazing value. For a special treat, head over to their bakery and juice bar in the enclosed building area. You simply must try the passion fruit juice!

Guayaba y Chocolate


After the intense swirl of emotions and delights this neighborhood has to offer, treat yourself to a chocolate treat of highest pedigree. This chocolatier is relatively new to the neighborhood, but with their true passion for quality, and extraordinary confections, you’d never know it. Want to learn more about chocolate? They offer classes! When I come here, I am sure to ask for their creamy coconut chocolates made with signature Venezuelan chocolate. Enjoy!
