Miami Chowhounds have it lucky... Yes, San Francisco and New York has more of an European feel thanks to their city layouts. They also may have more European restaurants (other than Spanish restaurants). But many visitors that comes to Miami have noticed something... we have more European-style bakeries and European-style people supporting these businesses.
Think about it... Miami is defined by its plethora of Latin American bakeries, where you can make a quick stop for a meal - whether it be for breakfast, hot entrees, baked goods (pastelitos, crossaints, sandwiches), desserts (napoleons, eclairs, mousse de parchita or mango anyone?), and/or, of course, for a good cup of coffee.
And many people in Miami seems to be content with going to these bakeries for a light or quick meal - otherwise we wouldn't have so many of these! And it's nice to have these places to just go and relax, ponder your future with the good aromas, or to chat with your friends.
So, my question to you, fellow Chowhounds of Miami... what are some of your favorite cafeterias/cafes/bakeries in the city... and why?
