You’re going to need some fuel to get you through all of the Miami activities I shared in my “Where To Go And What To Do In Miami” post, so today I’m sharing places to chill out, carb up, & enjoy some of the best food Miami has to offer.
CHOICES CAFE – MIAMI, FL :
It doesn’t matter what side of town you’re staying in Miami, you can easily make it to Choices Café since they have three different locations. Choices café’s is 100% vegan. Their philosophy reads; “Our purpose is to inspire compassionate choices by serving delicious, healthy, and organic plant-based food prepared with love for people, animals and the planet”. Their main menu consists of a variety of wraps, bowls, tacos, burgers, & more. And on the weekends, they offer a brunch menu which is filled with sweet and savory options. While both of their menus sounded delicious, we both decided on brunch. Hey if I see vegan pancakes as an option anywhere, then it’s easily settled, I’m ordering pancakes! And thank goodness for that, because the pancakes from Choices Café were THE best pancakes of my entire 27 years of life. No exaggeration. Lorenzo also absolutely loved his food, which is pictured above & below. We will 100% for sure go to Choices Café every single future Miami trip, maybe even more than once per trip. Deeeeelicious! The price range is $12-$30/ meal & will not disappoint.
DELLA BOWLS – MIAMI, FL:
I’ve already talked about one of my favorite neighborhoods in Miami, Wynwood Arts District. Well add The Wynwood Yard to the list of reasons to love the neighborhood. Wynwood yard is a great outdoor space with live music, pop-up shops, & food trailers. Right at the front of the yard is an all-vegan food trailer, Della Bowls. As the name suggests, the food is all served in bowls. You can choose from a list of their specialty bowls, or build your own. When you build your own you get to pick your base, protein, veggie, sauce, & boost (a nice little extra). I know the bowl idea has been done a lot, but this place offers unique menu choices that allow them to stand out. I especially love the five different sauce options. The food was really yummy, & it was nice to know we were eating such healthy food without sacrificing flavor. The bonus of such an enjoyable atmosphere makes this the perfect place to make a night of. Bowls start at $10.50 & with generous portions, you’re likely to have leftovers.
FULL BLOOM VEGAN – MIAMI BEACH, FL:
If you’re looking for an intimate & romantic dining experience, try Full Bloom Vegan. This restaurant is right on the water & offers both indoor & outdoor seating. Their lunch & dinner menu vary quite a bit, but each menu is filled with gourmet vegan cuisine that is beautifully plated. I’m quite the picky eater, but one of my resolutions was to be more adventurous, so I decided to try something completely different at our visit to Full Bloom… cabbage balls. Okay so that might not sound all that out there to “normal” people, but 01. I had never tasted cabbage prior to this visit, like ever in life, & 02. You’re probably greatly underestimating just how picky of an eater I am. Per usual I made Lorenzo try a bite first. Also per usual, him “approving” it had absolutely no comforting affect on me, nonetheless I took a bite & Oh My God! Soooooooo good! I’m talking chocolate cake level of good. Like what? I still can’t believe how tasty it was. Now I sadly must switch gears from the yay to the nay of my Full Bloom Vegan review… I almost didn’t even get to enjoy the cabbage balls. Why? Because after I ordered, the waiter came back & told me they were unavailable because the ingredients were being saved to make them for an event the next day. My disappointment changed their mind, however at the end of our meal we were unable to choose from all of the dessert options because they were saving some of those for the event as well. None of this was mentioned on their website, social media, nor to us until AFTER we ordered, not cool. I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt that things are usually more professional, but as an honest reviewer, I had to mention it, especially at the price point for this restaurant, which is a good $100+ for dinner for two. Also note that reservations are required.
EDEN IN EDEN – MIAMI, FL:
Eden in Eden is a small French café with a very vegan-friendly menu. It’s a great spot for vegan offerings that are harder to find, such as crepes & quiches. The flavors of the food we ordered were subtle, but quite pleasant. They also have a small grocery in the café, which offers vegetarian & vegan items like agave, coconut milk, juices, soups, crackers, & lot more. The service is great, with warm, friendly, smiling faces. Eat in the quaint café, pick-up your food to go, or if you’re not too far, you can even order for delivery. The price range is $12-$30/meal, typical for the area.
Man now I’m starving & really wishing that I could teleport to Miami!
