In a world dominated by images of #foodporn, the best way to get the most likes is to stop by one of these places. Daily, we’ll be posting our top places where your photo is sure to be a standout.
Ice Box Cafe
If Oprah Winfrey tells you the best chocolate cake in the USA is made in Miami, you don’t question it. Ever. Since then, Ice Box Cafe on Purdy Avenue has expanded its brand, offering lunch, dinner and brunch and features items like guava-filled french toast, which is arguably a close competitor to their chocolate cake. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, IceBox also just added homemade ice cream to their menu. The best part? You can get the best of Ice Box right on capus at Innovation Kitchen in the food court, just a hop skip and jump from your next class.
1855 Purdy Ave., (305) 538-8448; iceboxcafe.com
Instagram-worthy moment: Any dish you photograph here will put you in the ranks of the Testinos of the world because the lighting is THAT good in this crispy and cozy establishment.
ZAK THE BAKER
A day out in Wynwood involves the usual: gallery warehouses, cold brewed coffee…and now freshly baked bread with the opening of Zak the Baker in Wynwood. The name is no stranger–Zak has been a mainstay at the University of Miami’s Wednesday farmer’s market. Zak the Baker’s bread is a product of namesake Zak Stern’s travels around the world, where he learned how to perfect the art of baking bread. Not only is the shop evidence of its success, but the smell that emenates through the warehouse-lined streets of Wynwood is a giveaway too.
405 NW 26 St, Miami, FL, 33127; zakthebaker.com
Instagram-worthy moment: Grab a group of friends, or if you’re feeling ambitious, go solo and order a variety of toasts to photograph together. The product: the most colorful looking dish this side of the Mississippi.
