85. Lemon Meringue Cake at Ice Box Cafe

The sign in the window proclaims that Oprah deems these cakes the fairest in the land. Walk inside and choose the lemon meringue cake from the selection in the cooler. It's moist and delicious without that too-sugary taste of many cakes. There's a light touch at Ice Box Cafe that makes even the richest pastry seem downright fluffy. The tart lemon filling tastes fresh and tangy, and the marshmallow meringue is sweet without being overpowering. This is cake for grownups - light and fruity, creamy and tangy. At $6, it's a rich indulgence that everyone can afford.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
