Home of the Sarussi Original, dubbed “colossus” by Travel Channel’s Adam Richman, Sarussi Cafe Subs takes sandwiches to untold new dimensions. Its menu boasts a dozen different signature subs, each of which are made on 8- or 16-inch garlic-buttered rolls, and are packed with enough smoked ham, roasted pork leg, or rib meat to make them 4 inches thick—roughly the same size as a Seawolf-class nuclear submarine.
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.
CitySightSeeing Miami encourages tourists not just to see the sights around them, but also to explore them. Professional multilingual guides educate tourists on historical facts and fun city locations, leaving visitors with a deeper knowledge about Miami. When the urge strikes to linger at a tour stop, guests can hop off their double-decker buses and roam alone. Throughout the day, more buses arrive at each stop in intervals to pick up wandering customers and continue their tours while pairing them once again with the bus’s free WiFi and interior AC.
Founded by a trio of Italians, Gelato-go serves up a variety of the delectable treat made fresh each day. Using low-fat milk, cream, and no butters, hydrogenated vegetable fats, or other industrial bases, gelato-makers deliver flavors that blend tastes such as pistachio, strawberry, and stracciatella, or coconut, chocolate, and cream. The menu also includes sorbetto made with seasonal fruits, as well as hot croissants filled with gelato, and the shop gladly accepts bulk orders for delivery.
Café food goes kosher at Montefiore Café & Restaurant. This breakfast, lunch, and dinner spot’s French- and Italian-inspired menus contain only Cholev Yisroel and Pas Yisroel food, all certified by Kosher Miami supervision. And that includes everything from the chocolate croissant and cheesy mushroom crêpe to the paninis, pastas, and personal-sized pizzas. Montefiori’s team includes English, Hebrew, Spanish, and French speakers who can accommodate a wide variety of guests and share in how weird the word “cushion” sounds out loud.
Just beyond the neon blue lights of Yo Mix Frozen Yogurt's tiled counter, guests can fill up empty cups at a bank of yogurt dispensers set inside a marble wall. After filling up with any of the shop's rotating menu of more than 100 flavors of frozen yogurt—such as chocolate milkshake and dragon passion tart—guests can decorate and enhance their creations at the covered toppings counter, which features fruits, nuts, and candies. While nibbling on their self-made snack at one of the contemporary tables or bar seats, patrons can log into the free Wi-Fi and search the web to see if scientists finally found the cure for brain freeze.
