Quick Weekend in MIA - Recs

Hi there Miami Hounds,

My wife and I are headed to Miami for quick weekend visit with her brother who lives in what I *think* is the UES of town (Belle Meade neighborhood).

Brother is not much of a food person so we are on research detail. Wife and I prefer casual and local - happier in places that don't appear in, say, airline magazines.

Here's our current plan:

Arrive Fri afternoon - dinner at Michy's

Sat lunch - Michael's Genuine (because I have never been and have been told this needs to be top of the list)

We need a Sat breakfast idea - preferably not on South Beach or Lincoln Rd, which Brother takes us to every time we're in town.

Thinking about a casual dinner at Garcia's on Sat night, but open to other ideas - have heard the food truck scene in MIA is jamming...

Last thing - would love some great Cuban coffee & pastry. Versailles recommended to us - looking for confirmation or better/closer ideas.

Many thanks - looking forward to a couple days in your lovely city.
