Flour & Weirdoughs
19 Harbor Dr., Key Biscayne / website
Schnur coined this bakery as the most unique and ever-changing pastry in Miami. It offers an entertaining menu with varied but delicious sourdoughs and wiener sausages. Their famous “It’s Brisket B * itch!”, Brisket Croissant and Cinnamon Rolls are crowd-pleasers.
1894 Bay Rd., Miami Beach / Website
Located in the heart of Sunset Harbor, True Loaf Bakery is a premier place for bread, pastries, and sandwiches. Schnur’s insider tip is to order the freshly made morning buns and Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies. And make sure you don’t miss out on the fresh challah every Friday.
600 Brickell Ave., Brickell / website
The B Bistro is more than just a bakery. It offers a delicious brunch with classics and much more. Schnur’s favorite brunch are the pastelito pancakes, the cruffin – especially the special unicorn, filled with pastel cream and a fondant horn – or one of their freshly baked croissants. If pastries aren’t your thing, B Bistro also offers a selection of salads and other upscale breakfast items.
Zak the baker
295 NW 26th St., Wynwood / Web site
Zak the Baker has made a name for himself on the Miami scene and is best for anything pastry and bread related. The bakery lives up to Wynwood’s expectations and is the coolest place to get your pastries, especially Challah. Schnur recommends the Salmon Reuben, which are served on the bakery’s classic sourdough rye bread.
2020 Salzedo St., Coral Gables / website
Indulge in the most perfect pastries from award-winning pastry chef Antonio Bachour. The restaurant offers a full service menu, but the copious amounts of sweet and savory croissants are the first choice. Dry off the Dulce De Leche Croissant for a sweet kick and the Croque Madame Croissant for a hearty satisfaction!
2818 N Miami Ave., Wynwood / website
There’s no doubt that Fireman Derek’s is Miami’s cake shop. The decadent cakes and unique desserts are perfect for any celebration or nighttime snack. Schnur’s top picks are the Key Lime Pie, the S’Mores Pie and the Turtle Brownie Pie. Their homemade fresh cakes, cheesecakes and more will fuel those cravings for sugar!
3501 NE 2nd Ave., Midtown / Website
If you’re looking for a beautiful, Instagrammable birthday cake, dbakers is the place. Known for their bespoke cakes and over 26 types of homemade macarons, you’ll love the look and taste of your desserts. Aside from their luxurious cakes, Shnur’s menu item is peanut butter and jelly biscuit.
164 NE 41st St., Design District / Website
Night Owl’s improved cookie experience takes cookies to the next level and leaves you wanting more. They offer classic flavors like Chocolate Chip and range all the way to ‘Rainbow Over Bedrock’ – made from the brand’s signature batter and filled with white chocolate chips, topped with classic Fruity Pebbles muesli.
The salty donut
6022 S Dixie Highway, South Miami / Website
This artisanal donut shop has taken Miami by storm. With unique and artisanal donuts that turn seasonally, the menu never gets old. The sweet and salty favorite, Bacon and Maple, is available year-round. Current seasonal products include the Vegan Blueberry Crumble and the Butter Beer Donut.
