From the first cup of coffee in the morning to the after-dinner espresso, we all have plenty of java needs. Here are the best places to get a cup o’ joe during your stay in Miami Beach.
Panther Coffee is Miami’s go-to spot casual meetings, catching up with friends, and quick pick-me-ups. With plenty of work space, the cafe caters to remote workers and connoisseurs alike serving fresh beans from around the world. No matter your preference (cold drip, vacuum pot, French press, chemex maker, or clever dripper) these baristas can handle it.
If you are really looking to treat yourself, head to Chez Bon Bon after dinner. Order an espresso or special drink like The Mocha—made with espresso, steamed milk, and ghiradelli chocolate. This patisserie makes everything from scratch. From the hand-rolled chocolate croissants to cakes, macaroons, marshmallows, and 28 flavors of gelato.
Even though Nespresso Cafe is a worldwide chain, this cafe/espresso machine shop on Lincoln Road feels distinctly at home with its sleek modern design and colorful aesthetics. No to-go cups here, which means you actually have to sit down and enjoy a pure espresso. The cafe also has a selection of tarts, cakes, and other bites. Try the grilled made with aged gruyere, fontina cheese, and truffle butter for a memorable bite.
Las Olas impresses with each of Miami’s favorite Cuban drinks: the cafecito (an espresso shot brewed with sugar), the cortadito (a cafecito topped with steamed milk), and cafe con leche (an un-sweetened espresso served with hot milk in a 1:1 ratio). This locally-loved corner restaurant in South Beach is a staple serving acclaimed dishes like Cuban sandwiches and oxtail stew.
This Lincoln Road café and restaurant brings a classic Italian coffee experience to Miami Beach. Stop by to get your daily cappuccino or macchiato, or try our favorite, the Caffe Shakerato (espresso shaken with ice, sugar, and your choice of liqueur). And don’t forget to come back for aperitivo from 4-6pm on weekdays when Segafredo serves complimentary small bites for those ordering drinks.
