MIAMI'S BEST DESSERTS
Words / Sam Quin
The Salty Donut: This donut shop is one of the best ones in Miami and has quickly made a name for itself. The actual storefront is modern, clean, and beautiful. Plus it's located in Wynwood, which is known for its graffiti and hipster vibes. The donuts are enormous (I usually can only eat half) and they taste incredible. They're also always coming out with new and exclusive flavors so there's always something to look forward to. My favorite is both the traditional and the guava and cream cheese donut. If you plan on going make sure to go before they run out for the day.
Fireman Derek’s Bake Shop & Café: Best. Pie. Ever. Hands down. They have a bunch of flavors and you can buy the their pies by the slice or just get a whole pie. I do by the slice so I can choose more flavors. They also have various cakes and cookies but honestly the pie is the main reason to go.
Morelia Gourmet Paletas: Paletas are Mexican popsicles (think of a typical popsicle but twice the size). Morelia has multiple locations and it's easy to see why. They have a bunch of flavors to pick from (chocolate, lime, mango, Oreo, etc.). The popsicles can also be topped with melted chocolate, sprinkles, almonds, etc. They're all customizable and extremely filling.
Whip ‘n Dip Ice Cream: This ice cream shop has been around for years and it's one of my favorite places to stop by. Ice cream in Miami is a must and this place serves up some of the best flavors. Their flavors rotate everyday so it's hard to determine what they'll be serving on what day. Regardless, they have their traditional year round flavors, but don't miss out of the daily batches.
