Confiteria Buenos Aires Bakery & Cafe

7134 Collins Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33141 | Mid/North Beach | 305-861-7887

Location Description:

This Argentine café is simply too good to have remained a secret. Generally speaking, if a bakery isn't crowded, it isn't worth going to, so get in line. You grab a basket and a number, and when your number is called, you tell the worker what you want. Your choices will derive from three brightly lit glass display cases of tempting baked goods. One is devoted entirely to masas finas, or minipastries the size of petit fours (just 50 cents apiece). Another, holds somewhat familiar cakes and desserts, like ricotta cheesecake, tiramisu, fruit tarts, flan, bread pudding, and an over-the-top Imperial Russo cake layered with dulce de leche, strawberries, peaches, cream, Napoleon dough, and meringue. Cakes are sold whole or by portion. And there's a case that contains numerous facturas -- like Latin Danishes. Lunch-friendly treats include four varieties of homemade empanadas, potato or spinach tortillas (Spanish omelet), and sandwiches such as chicken or veal cutlet and prosciutto and cheese. Sandwich rolls are freshly baked on the premises, as are other breads for sale -- try the uniquely crunchy pan con chicharrones. Come on, get in line.
