Miami’s Most Spectacular Desserts, Just in Time for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, but if you, like us, are still thinking about your holiday meal, we’ve got a few ideas. Specifically: spectacular desserts from Miami’s best bakers and pastry chefs that, as of press time, are still available. Whether you’re looking for a stereotypical cherry pie (or pumpkin, you) or absolutely perfect flan, we’ve rounded up our favorite spots below. There’s plenty of time to grab a delicious last-minute bite.

Take this: brioche buns

Details: Located in the Sunset Harbor Shops in Miami Beach, this bakery has plenty of sweet treats for breakfast, but you can still grab something like their brioche buns for dinner for your celebrations. These cute little rolls can work as part of the main meal, but they’re also sweet enough for dessert time. Call and double check availability – this week is expected to be chaotic.

Take this: Cannolo

Details: Who doesn’t like a good cannoli? Fact: dessert cannolis are the ideal digestive. This excellent Italian bakery has locations scattered throughout Miami (and New Jersey and New York, if you’re heading north).

Take this: Anything

Details: “Baklava” is a general dessert term that can mean a few different things, but the only similarity they all have is that they are delicious. Dating back to pre-Ottoman times, this staple can be found in Turkey, Jordan and, happily for us, at Time Out Miami Market.

Take this: Pistachio ricotta crostata

Details: Located in Wynwood, this bakery stands out for good reason. With a focus on traditional treats using locally sourced ingredients, Mamma Leone Bakery is the perfect place for a pastry or, our favorite, a pistachio ricotta crostata. They also have a good variety of vegan options.

Take this: nutella croissant

Details: Billing itself as a top-tier European bakery (in Miami), Granier is the product of Juan Pedro Conde, a native of Barcelona. Located in Sunny Isles and two other South Florida locations, the bakery offers a superlative Nutella croissant, an option for an unexpected Thanksgiving treat.

Take this: French buche

Details: This tasty little log is made with mousse, strawberries and raspberries. It’s the perfect addition to any holiday dinner and sweet enough to level any overly savory post-turkey palette. The bakery location is a bit outside, but once you’re inside, you’ll see why this is a local favorite. While you’re there, check out their artisan bread, as they’re known to be some of the best in North Miami. Also remember the macarons; What kind of Floridian French bakery would this be without them?
