Mooie's furnishes unoccupied stomachs with an ample array of hot and cold comestibles in an energetic, family-oriented environment. Transform a wheat or spinach BLT wrap ($5.95) into a BATLOG wrap by adding arugula, onions, and garlic oil, or thaw out freezer-burned buds with a hot roast-beef-and-cheddar sandwich ($7.95).
Enchanting Creations specializes in edible art created under the direction of owner and head designer Karen Matamoros. Karen and her husband, Alex, decided to open the bakery shop in their backyard after living in the community for more than two decades. In their free time, they pour themselves into art-⎯expressing themselves by painting murals, designing fashion, and building custom furniture⎯and the bakery has become an additional extension of their creative sides.
In running the bakery, they take their artistic aspirations to new heights with 3-D cakes: edible sculptures that represent a variety of cartoon characters and inanimate objects, such as a ribbon-wrapped present, Spider-Man, or a giant bowling ball. Their smaller treats—including cake pops, pastries, and cupcakes—combine rich cocoa, fresh fruits, fluffy cake, and sugary sweet icing into bite-size portions and delicate desserts. Testifying to Enchanting Creations' dedication to the environment, all orders ship out in eco-friendly boxes, unlike most bakery goods, which are packaged in wasteful styrofoam boxes, surrounded by styrofoam peanuts, and topped with styrofoam sprinkles.
Le Café Bistro treats Francophile tastes with classic French dishes served in an eclectic, cozy atmosphere. Diners can choose from a slew of starters populating the varied bistro menu. Begin with authentic escargot ($7), or savor the french onion soup topped with a baked cheese-and-bread beret ($5). Classics, such as croque-monsieur sandwiches ($7), rib-eye steak with crispy frites ($15), and succulent braised-beef bourguignon served with mashed potatoes and rice ($14), give this spot a je ne sais quoi that's particularly difficult to describe. Crack through the caramelized sugar crust of a vanilla-bean crème brûlée ($5) while sipping a beverage from the drink menu, which touts various wines, beer options, and Segafredo coffee and tea.
Mo's Cakes' expert bakers whisk together cakey confections suitable for parties, holidays, or palatable presents. Excavated fresh daily from underground bundt mines, the mini, single-serving bundt cakes hold delectable depositories of cinnamon swirls within a moist golden batter. The dozen rounded sweets come packaged in a brown satin box, held together with a signature red ribbon and Pandora-themed curse.
Recently voted Miami's best sandwich by local eaters, La Sandwicherie has earned its savory stripes through the use of natural ingredients and bread baked fresh daily in its sandwiches. South Beach sandwichionados can opt for French bread or croissant bookends for their sandwich, with the usual array of toppings available to choose from, as well as the non-traditional topping of cornichons, French pickles rumored to give the power of dance to any who eat them. This Euro-centric flavor extends to La Sandwicherie's sandwich fillers as well. Alongside traditional cold-cut sandwiches skyscrapered with roast beef ($6.50), turkey ($6.25), or ham ($6.20), La Sandwicherie gets global in its gluttony with sandwiches topped with fresh mozzarella ($6.20), camembert ($6.20), pâté ($7.50), and prosciutto ($7.50). La Sandwicherie's French vinaigrette, another option for toption, is so beloved that La Sandwicherie sells bottles of it for customers to take home and use when lining their own sandwiches or Slip 'n Slides.
Espressamente Illy photographically chronicles their process on a vibrant red wall, starting with the harvest of the beans, which are shaken out by hand and dried to release the unique earthy tales of India, Colombia, Brazil, and other countries of origin. The photos and the café itself are a testament to the labors of the company’s Italian-born founder, Ernesto Illy. In 1933, the self-proclaimed "cocktail of science and business" founded Illy, a landmark in a life spent in search of the perfect espresso.Today, the fruits of that labor shine through in more than 200 stores in 34 countries. Gliding across marble floors, patrons test-drive retail coffee machines, sip on bellinis and wine in stemware, or chat over salads and pressed paninis. Illy Miami does so well to evoke Italy that European pilots from Miami International can be seen between flights sipping on joe on the outdoor patio or searching “Do clouds sting?” on the café's free WiFi.
