Updated: Mar 7, 2019
Miami is always the gateway to a dreamy tropical paradise. Not only does it have a stunning beach view and the most gorgeous winter in the US, but there are also tons of delicious and lovely food all over the city. If you are looking for the ultimate Instagrammable food guide of Miami, this list is for you!
Dreamer Juice Bar is hands down the loveliest juice bar I've ever visited. It takes me to a bright tropical world immediately. If you are a super fan of flamingos like me, this place is flamingo-ey enough to make you scream. All the details in the decoration in the shop are lovely. I only tried their drinks, and the strawberry matcha is delightful. This is a perfect spot to start a day because the refreshing aesthetic will wake you up.

This dessert place is such a vintage hidden gem. As soon as I walked in, I was drawn to the delightful, homey, inviting atmosphere. The owner Ainsley is so welcoming and sweet. She runs this place with her heart and knows everyone in the neighborhood. Even myself, a traveler, felt I was welcomed at home. The homemade ice cream and desserts are hard to top. Even more, they make customizable desserts that make your ultimate dessert dreams come true. Each dessert I had was gorgeous and delicious. The Nutella heaven is out of control. I want to drown myself in this rich chocolate flavor all day. I love everything about the decorations: it's fun, vibrant, dreamy and vintage all at the same time. Cream Parlor is for sure one of my best food experiences in Miami!

Salty Donut takes the definition of "good donuts" to the next level. The donuts here literally made me forget about all the donuts I've had before. Just from the long line that goes all the way to the street, you can tell how popular this place is. Here every donut is a piece of art. They offer a delicious variety of flavors, and many seasonal options as well. The seasonal donuts are a must-try, and they usually get sold out pretty quickly.
I went there during Thanksgiving and their holiday special totally blown me away. Each donut has either delicious toppings or surprises fillings. I would love to trade in my calories just for that yummy bite.

La Muse Cafe
How would it feel to enjoy your food while surrounded by art pieces? La Muse Cafe is the restaurant to experience that fully. This cafe is connected to an art gallery. Regardless if you are a fan of avant-garde art, this place would stun you with its artistic decorations. The aesthetic here is like no other place. They have some of the most novel lamps here; each one is so unique. The food they serve here surely matches the artistic level of all the pieces on the wall. The menu itself is interesting and unique. It tells you the artists that inspired some names of the dishes and their stories. The plating and presentation of all the food were on point. I highly recommend the avocado toast here. It is a beautiful art piece on the table, and one of the most delicious avocado toasts I've ever tried.

Cielito Artisan Pops
Some delicious ice pops are very needed for Miami's hot weather. Cielito Artisan Pops has exactly what I was looking for. This shop is lovely and vibrant. It welcomes you with refreshing colors and cute decorations. I certainly had a hard time picking what flavors I want because there were so many options, so I tried two: one refreshing fruit ice pop and one creamy milk pop. The fruit one pulled me out of the brutal Miami heat immediately. It was pure magic. The milk one was their iconic unicorn pop. It is so rich and creamy, and of course, super adorable. You can also pick topping here and choose chocolate drizzles to customize your ice pops. It is definitely a flavor wonderland.

This is a chic restaurant at the heart of downtown, close to the shopping mall. They have many delicate pastries here, which were what I tried, and one of the best croissants in Miami. Each dessert surprised me with their decorations and flavors. The Unicorn Cruffin wowed me. This croissant is stuffed with delicious vanilla cream and topped with purple frosting cream, just imagine all the dreamy, sweet elements mushed up together in one pastry. The croissant is crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I also tried their cold tomato soup, and it was quite nicely done. The sourness and acidity kept a delicate balance with all the sweet desserts I had. I heard the food was amazing here too. If you have tried any of their food, let me know!

Joe & The Juice - Wynwood
You probably think, there is a Joe & The Juice in my neighborhood, what's special about it? Well, I put it here on the list because it is at an Instagrammable spot - Wynwood and it saved my day. I was walking around in Wynwood and trying to explore every street. That's the charm of Wynwood: you don't know what you would discover at the next corner. We all know how hot Miami can get even in November. Soon I was toasted by the sun and desperately wanted to find something cold to drink. Then I saw Joe & The Juice, and it was a perfect spot for a stop. It's spacious, bright and full of plants. If you are exhausted from the heat, get something cold to drink here before keep exploring the neighborhood.

Mandolin Aegean Bistro
This restaurant has the most beautiful shopfront. I felt like I was transported to Greece. It is close to the designer district and the red flowers blooming outside makes it hard to miss. I've read so many good reviews about the Mediterranian food they serve here, but due to time, I didn't get a chance to eat here. If you have tried their food there, leave a comment and tell me if you enjoyed this spot!
