Cafe Bambini combines stimulating play centers for children with a relaxing café for caretakers. Children frolic with no time limit in any of five areas designed to foster group play and creativity. Centers devoted to science and discovery, dramatic play, and areas with building materials and blocks all invite children to explore the backcountry of their imaginations. The Active Corner inspires climbing and extreme high-fiving, and the Dress Up & Princess Corner encourages make-believe with a variety of costumes.
Varanda’s menu deposits delicious Brazilian cuisine in hungry stomachs, ensuring they're happily filled with ingredients from South America. Guests such as Lady Gaga and Ricky Martin have dined at Varanda’s, and the eatery can also satisfy inner celebrities with starters such as asinha de frango (chicken wings, $7.95) or pastel de queijo, a popular cheese-filled pastry ($1.95). Meat eaters can enjoy the muqueca de peixe—a fish fillet simmered in coconut sauce and spices and served with beans and rice ($13.95)—plunge their teeth into a picanha steak ($13.95), or sample linguica, a Brazilian-style sausage served with beans, rice, and a side ($12.95).
A towering wall of book-lined shelves and a wooden chessboard tucked in the corner create "that vibe where you feel like maybe you should stay for a spell" at Moloko, according to the Miami New Times. That feeling grows stronger as you sip from a cup of steaming coffee or steeped tea and drive a fork into abundant crepes stuffed with anything from prosciutto to raw, organic maple syrup.
Overhead, exposed wooden rafters keep the ceiling from floating away from the walls, adding a rustic touch to the otherwise modern décor. Customers lounge beside cherry-red walls at the coffee bar, settling into vinyl seats that fall somewhere between stools and armchairs. When the space isn't serving customers, the staff hosts crepe-making classes and live music.
iConnect Cafe's goal is a lofty one: to help revitalize the spiritual and cultural offerings and lifestyles in south Florida. A goal this ambitious calls for services that rise to the challenge, and so iConnect's founders do more than just provide organic tea, coffee, and café food. They also offer yoga classes that can help clients work up an appetite for their vegan bean burgers and kale salads, and lead healing reiki sessions that can be followed with a cup of organic joe. Body wraps wrap the body, promoting exfoliation and moisturizing with cucumbers, aloe, honey, or seaweed, and the five-point star treatment targets the scalp, hands, and feet with herbal salts, organic paparazzi, and medicated oils.
Origami Food replenishes pantries with fresh groceries, produce, and organic specialty items. Customers can raid the shelves for wholesome oils and seeds, or stock up on spices, herbs, and dressings to add flavor to everyday foods or an astronaut friend’s idea of dinner. Customers can also browse a selection of potables, from organic green teas and coffees to fruity drinks.
