This cozy neighborhood spot serves all the classics: lattes, cappuccinos, cold brew and more. There are milk alternatives such as house-made almond milk, oat milk and soy milk. And the beautifully decorated drinks go well with one of the cafe’s baked goods. Whether it’s a lavender-infused coffee beverage or a complicated effervescent tea, the eclectic Vice City Bean is bound to have whatever off-the-wall drink you’re craving.
June 2020: In a city powered by cafecito, it’s important to keep tabs on where the best beans are brewing—and that means updating our list of the best Miami coffee shops from time to time. We said goodbye to indie joints White Rose and Deco, both of which, sadly, didn’t survive the lockdown, and welcomed South Beach newcomer Bebito’s and Brooklyn transplant Cafe Grumpy in Coral Gables. Because your morning or afternoon caffeine fix often requires a snack, we also added some cafes with standout food options—think Pura Vida and its stellar acai bowls and cold brew and Bachour with its array of croissants and espresso drinks. Plus, we’ve introduced Sips in Allapattah, known for its in-house roasts and Hadekel 1 in Aventura. Going to a coffee shop in Miami might not be the laid-back experience you remember pre-lockdown but these places make going out for a cup of Joe safe and enjoyable.
During any time of the day, you’ll find folks at one of the best coffee shops in Miami. We don’t care if it’s morning, afternoon or just a few minutes before bed. This city runs on coffee. Hitting up one of the best bakeries in Miami? Better grab a coffee while you’re there. Dining at one of the best Cuban restaurants in Miami? Coffee is a given. About to spend all night dancing at one of the best South Beach clubs? A quick espresso couldn’t hurt. You get the point, right? But it’s not enough to just drink coffee. We want the best, of course. And nobody in the 305 does it better than these java freaks.
