Loved by over 40s


Ella is a light and minimalist café which serves breakfast, lunch and late afternoon food. There’s much to enjoy under the spectacular décor and sky blue hanging lamps. Upon entering this café you’ll be greeted by the counter, front and center, featuring daily there-until-they’re-gone baked items, a chalkboard menu wall to the back above an open kitchen, and lots of light washing through its windows.

Ricky Bakery

Ricky Bakery’s menus reflect the nationalities, especially Latin American, that characterize this county. While they serve meals that appear simple enough, such as the breakfast burrito, breakfast croissant, and Cuban french toast, they still embody many delicate nuances from a variety of Latin American and other nationalities.

Buena Vista Bistro

Once you enter Buena Vista Bistro you’ll be immersed in a laid-back, 1950s-inspired setting that won’t distract you from the food. When renowned Chef Claude Postel moved to Miami, he was certain that he wanted to open a true neighborhood joint where diners could gather for a taste of authenticity and value. After five years on South Beach, he opened Buena Vista Bistro, a small, intimate restaurant that quickly became the neighborhood hot spot. Since freshness is of utmost importance, Claude goes to the market every day to select only the freshest ingredients to use in that day’s dishes.

Enriqueta’s Sandwich Shop

Open for breakfast and lunch, Enriqueta’s Sandwich Shop keeps the Design District well fed on everything from bacon and eggs to handmade sandwiches. This small Cuban cafeteria-style joint feeds hearty breakfasts and lunch specials to the hungry citizens daily. Here, you’ll find the usual morning staples like tostadas, empanadas, and café con leche, along with interesting meals like a sweet plantain omelette and cream cheese toast. Ham, pork, cheese, and BLT sandwiches and served french fries, are also great simple options.

Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill

At Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill, they say ‘Kick Back, Eat Well and Stay Awhile,’ and they make it easy for customers to do so. Three distinct culinary hubs: robata grill, hot kitchen and raw bar, unite at Sugarchane, resulting in what Food & Wine Editor-in-Chief Dana Cowin called ‘a greatest hits of delicious dishes.’ Inside, Suragarcane’s signature tropical fans, soaring ceilings, sultry interior bar and dining space create a ‘come one, come all’ attitude loved by both regulars and newcomers.

R House Wynwood

R House is a fine dining restaurant and lounge with an art gallery right in the heart of Miami’s Wynwood arts district, serving a contemporary and eclectic mix of American, Mediterranean, Asian and Latin dishes. R House provides patrons the opportunity to admire and acquire art as well as enjoy DJs and live music. One thing to know about this restaurant is that their Sunday brunch is one of the best in town. On Sundays, from 11:30am to 4pm, join the Sunday Sauce Brunch Party which features unlimited brunch appetizers and one main entree for a reasonable price.

Limon y Sabor Peruvian Seafood

Limon y Sabor has been deemed the best place for Peruvian food in the city. Whether you love Peruvian food or have never tried it but are looking for something new, this restaurant should be on everybody’s destination list when visiting Miami’s Design District. All meals are created by expert chefs who prepare the best of Peruvian food using selected ingredients of the highest quality. In addition to good food, they offer the best service and a welcoming environment that will make your visit to Limon y Sabor the first of many.

Buena Vista Deli

Locals and visitors alike enjoy Buena Vista Deli because it’s a welcome reminder to slow down and enjoy the finer things in life, which many of us tend to forget in the fast-paced bustle of Miami’s Design District. Guests also enjoy the charming setting, reminiscent of a typical French café with its cozy interior and chalkboards announcing the daily specials. Buena Vista Deli is the perfect spot to stop by for an unorthodox breakfast or brunch. Pop by and grab your choice of artisan crafted breads, a homemade pastry, sandwich, or panini before heading to work.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
