The Salty

It’s hard to believe Miami once had little in the way of freshly baked doughnuts. Then along came Andy Rodriguez and Amanda Pizarro in 2015 with the Salty Donut. These days, on any given weekend morning, sleepy patrons wait in line for a treat (or 12) from this small artisanal doughnut and coffee bar. With doughnut flavors ranging from traditional buttermilk to maple bacon and booze-inspired creations, the shop (which recently rebranded as the Salty) has tapped into the tastes and the Zeitgeist of Miami. What began as a wildly popular pop-up with a borderline cult following has given way to two permanent locations: one in Wynwood and a second in South Miami. The shops close once they sell out of doughnuts, so avoid the wait and order online; pick-up orders require a $35 minimum but add a growler of the Salty’s cold brew and you’re there. New Normal: Order ahead and choose your pick-up time.
