Charlotte Bakery

1499 Washington Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-535-0095

Location Description:

Cases at this Argentine bakery contain a vast variety of butter-based cookies, as well as fruit tarts, Napoleons, strawberry cheesecakes, and mini-pecan pies. Then there are the turnovers tunneled with sweet cheese, fruit, and dulce de leche, and trays of facturas atop the counters. The Argentine-styled empanada, with its juicy, full-flavored chicken and sautéed onion filling, ranks with the very best in Miami. Pork and beef empanadas are available as well, and so are those modeled on other Latin countries, such as a blintzlike Chilean version with soft, pale dough draped around sweet white cheese, and a Venezuelan empanada packed with savorily seasoned beef that is larger than the others and much more pleasing. There's coffee and counter space and a comfortable atmosphere conducive to ruminating on the past, here or in Buenos Aires.
