Hello 'Hounds! I basically grew up in So FL and moved to VA just a few years ago - (shortly after College) and was wondering if there are any "good" bakeries around (N Miami/N Miami Bch/Aventura/Sunny Isles down to Surfside)? Part of my teenage years were spent getting cookies, bread, fruit tart from La Baguette on Biscayne Blvd with my grandmother. I especially miss those heart shaped cakes (they may be financiers, I dont know) and the almond cookies. I was also at the old Renaissance Bakery location (maybe 3 or 4 yrs ago) and was there rather early and kinda waited, only to find out that their store front was no longer there. I also like the Argentinian Bakery on Collins and 69th??
I've tried Paul's and liked a few things but I really miss the times when things weren't so commercialized!
Any good suggestions? I will be home for a good amount of time this month and I'm feeling quite nostalgic!
ALSO, is that family owned Haitian store still open on W Dixie Hwy? I loved their bread as well!
