For the vegans: The Love Life milkshake at Love Live Cafe

This might be the only milkshake that doesn’t go down like a bomb in your stomach. The reason? It’s plant-based and dairy-free but full of flavor, thanks to a blend of cacao syrup, banana and crunchy pecan farofa.

For the classic Floridian: Key lime pie at Kush

Yep, there is a second Key lime pie worthy of a spot on this list, and if you’re native to the Sunshine State or even just a tiny bit Floridian on the inside, you will appreciate the simple perfection of Kush’s award-winning slice. Featuring the traditional graham cracker crust and pecan and Key lime filling topped with chopped nuts, it’s like a little dessert-sized portion of paradise in your mouth.

For the foodie: Candy cap-mushroom flan at Leña

A heaping of ’shrooms tempers the sweetness of this creamy Cuban custard dessert, giving it an earthy flavor, while the dollop of Sambuca crema and coffee-flavored crumble satisfy the imminent urge for cafecito.

For the kid at heart: Dirt cup at Giorgio Rapicavoli

You won’t find rainbow-colored gummy worms crawling around in this dessert. Instead, Rapicavoli’s grown-up dirt cup features layers of creamy vanilla ice cream, whipped Nutella and salted caramel plus a blanket of Oreo crumbles on top.

For the boozehound: Flan ice cream at Azucar

Have another cocktail or swan dive into dessert? It’s the question that usually creeps up after dinner. Suzy Batlle’s flan ice cream solves the conundrum, featuring homemade vanilla ice cream, chunks of Lila’s flan and a generous pour of Havana Club rum.

For the food-coma afflicted: Café bombón at the Local Cuban

icon-location-pin South Beach

Anyone familiar with a cortadito already knows it delivers a super-sweet jolt of sugar-and-caffeine-induced energy, as is typical of Cuban coffees and their variants. For a post-meal pick-me-up that won’t weigh you down, stop by the Local Cuban for its more decadent sister, the café bombón. It features Per’La Specialty Roasters’ Lucha blend and substitutes regular sugar with the more creamy and decadent sweetened, condensed milk. It’s a secret menu item, so you’ll have to ask nicely.

For the savory tooth: Cheese board at Miami Smokers

icon-location-pin South Beach

Some of us would rather skip on dessert altogether than inundate our palate with a saccharine ending. The cheese board at Miami Smokers—served with fruit preserves, toasted ciabatta and your choice of two or four cheeses—offers a perfect salty-tooth solution. Go local with Mimmo’s creamy stracciatella or opt for a bold, rustic blue sourced from California.

For the on-the-go: Churros at Coyo Taco

icon-location-pin South Beach

It’s hard to screw up something as simple and delicious as a churro. Delicately piped from a star-shaped nozzle into a sizzling vat of oil and dusted with cinnamon and sugar, the perfectly executed churros from Coyo Taco are also conveniently handheld for when you’re short on time but not on cravings.
