The Bakery Café and Restaurant (8250 NE 2nd Ave.) in the Village of El Portal,
just north of the City of Miami, serves Caribbean style breakfast, lunch, and dinner and sells baked goods everyday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. They also make a full line of tropical shakes and smoothies.
Owner Rony Desvarennes is the Honorary Consul for the Consulate General of the Republic of Gambia.
Short Order found the place while driving up NE 2nd Ave and ended up having an excellent meal for under $10 of something we'd never heard of before called Mais with cod fish. It's made with corn and it was spicy, rib sticking and delicious.
Here are some more pictures from Bakery Café and Restaurant...
This type of Haitian bread is thick and doughy with a thin crust, and a hint of sweetness.
