Despite the plethora of delicious pastelitos to be found at Miami's 4,587 Latin bakeries - there are still certain sweet treats only the French have been able to master. Think baguettes and pan au chocolat (chocolate croissant). Le Royal French Bakery is South Miami's go-to boulangerie/patisserie, with all that you'd expect from a French bakery (tarts, macarons, croissants galore), plus salads, sammies and cafe au laits. A one-time winner of our Best Croissant award, you can score the flaky, buttery treats in flavors like guava, ham & cheese and almond, to name a few.
