3 super sweet spots for dessert in Miami:

Icebox Cafe

Despite this cafe’s transition from bakery to full-fledged eatery over the past 15 years, it’s never lost sight of its sweet, sugary roots, and still offers today what it was best known for back in the day: an unsurpassable lineup of desserts. Bike over, grab a bite and don’t leave without a cookie/slice of cake/brownie for the road. We do it all the time.

Emack & Bolio’s

This imaginative ice cream shoppe sitting pretty on Purdy Avenue is a sure bet if you’re in the mood for a zany menu of super sweet scoops (think Cosmic Crunch, Trippin’ on Espresso and Grasshopper Pie – just to name a few). Our favorite: “Deep Purple” Chip, a cold, creamy concoction of black raspberry with white and dark chocolate flakes. Delish no matter what they dish!

Insomnia Cookies

Two words: cookie delivery. Nothing has ever sounded better than freshly baked, hand-delivered cookies in the middle of the night. But the whole glass of ice-cold milk thing… that’s really the icing on the cake for us. Sweet dreams!
