Here in Miami, we’re known for our fresh seafood and Cuban-inspired cuisine. But that doesn’t mean we skimp on dessert. Make your trip that much sweeter with a visit to one (or all!) of our five favorite spots for sweet treats.
2818 N Miami Avenue
Fireman Derek’s specializes in cakes of all kinds — from classics like key lime pie, cheesecake, red velvet, and carrot, to more contemporary recipes such as s’mores pie, sundae pie, and Nutella cheesecake! Drop by their Wynwood shop to purchase by the slice, or pre-order full pies for a special event.
The Salty Donut
50 NW 23rd Street #112
Fear not: The Salty Donut offers more than just salty, savory treats. (Which we are more than happy to try out too!) Their handmade, artisanal flavors also include white chocolate tres leches, Nutella, and traditional glazed buttermilk, along with weekly specials. Part donut shop, part coffee shop, we suggest pairing your pastry with a steaming cup of joe.
1227 Washington Avenue
It’s never too late for dessert at Insomnia Cookies. Open until 5:00am daily, you can get your fix of traditional cookies, ice cream cookie sandwiches, and mini cookie cakes after a night on the town. And the best part? They even deliver! Have cookies sent straight to your hotel room until 3:00am.
OH MY GOSH! Brigadeiros
2205 SW 23rd Avenue
OH MY GOSH! Brigadeiros serves up a modern rendition of a classic brigadeiro. (A Brazilian fudge ball made with condensed milk, cocoa powder, butter, and a whole lotta chocolate sprinkles.) Enjoy a classic, dulce de leche, or Nutella-flavored cappuccino served in a cup layered in chocolate and sprinkles, or snag a mini fudge ball with strawberry, almond, coconut, or passion fruit-flavored toppings.
3190 Commodore Plaza
A Vicky’s House milkshake is like no other. Each creamy concoction is topped with a sugary handful of your favorite candy, cereal, chocolate drizzle, whipped cream, and more. You can’t go wrong with the acclaimed Breakfast Club — a vanilla milkshake with a peanut butter rim encrusted in Captain Crunch cereal, whipped cream, maple syrup, Miami Smokers Bacon, a glazed donut, AND a shot of colada. Talk about a sugar high!
