The Magic City is teeming with coffee and cake shops giving us major cravings and good vibes. If you want to know the best spot in Miami to satiate your sweet tooth or get your caffeine fix, check out our round-up of favorites on this must-visit list.

Misha’s Cupcakes

With several locations spread out over Miami, Misha’s Cupcakes is no newbie to the sweet scene. Established by home baker Misha Kuryla-Gomez in 2005, the popular bakeshop makes more than 10,000 cupcakes a day in delicious flavors like dulce de leche, red velvet with buttercream, and lots of chocolate options for cocoa lovers. They introduce holiday flavors throughout the year, and have cakes, cake-in-a-jar, brownies, cookies, and muffins on their menu.

Dreamer Coffee & Juice Bar

This trendy California-style café and juice bar in South Beach is a magnet for millennials. Clad in pink flamingo wallpaper, wicker chairs and marble top tables, every corner of this place is photogenic – including of course, its food and drinks. But they’re not just worth visiting for the photos. The natural fruit juices and açai bowls, and healthy matcha tea are equally refreshing, setting the mood for good vibes all day.

Vice City Bean

Perfect for meeting with a friend, or getting work done on your laptop, this minimalist coffee shop tucked in the Filling Station Lofts in North Miami Avenue boasts a hip but relaxed environment. The industrialist interior is equipped with sleek bar stools, tables and a corner reading nook stocked with magazines to browse through. Order coffee, tea or one of their oversized cookies and baked goods they source from local vendors. The best thing on the menu is their avocado toast!

The Salty Donut

No, the donuts aren’t salty (except for maybe their maple bacon donut), they’re just massive, glazed and plump with delicious fillings. Locals and tourists alike wait in a queue stretching outside of the tiny shop for a taste of these sweet treats in Wynwood. The shop boasts a year-round menu with staple flavors like Guava and Cheese, Nutella and White Chocolate Tres Leches, but their seasonal flavors are extra exciting to discover. Their strawberries and cream with homemade strawberry preserves, glaze and vanilla bean whip is extra special, and super Instagrammable.

Specializing in vegan and gluten-free cupcakes, this pretty-in-pink cakeshop in Wynwood is the place to make a pit stop for a sugar rush. Beloved by both vegans and carnivores alike, Bunnie Cakes is famous for their fun and creative flavors and decorations, and when each cupcake comes with a tiny heart, you just can’t help but feel special inside. Their cake designs are extra fabulous too – so make sure to order one for your next birthday party.

All Day

A beehive for coffee fanatics, All Day makes some seriously great coffee, and their baristas are some of the few in Miami who actually nail latte art. Their ingredients are sourced from local farmers, and the baked bread comes from Miami’s favorite, Zak the Baker, while they make all their bagels and muffins in-house. In for breakfast? Order their delicious biscuit of sausage and eggs, brie cheese and herb aioli.
