Living so close to Miami, we’ll admit, we’re spoiled. From cafes and restaurants, shops to galleries, it’s got a mix of everything.  While the traffic can be painful at times, once you’re in the hip and up-coming Wynwood area, or find yourself on any patio overlooking the beach, you’ll see why Miami is still as hot as ever!

Here’s a few of our favourites spots:


Market at EDITION

From Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten comes Market at EDITION, a food hall-inspired dining destination in the heart of Miami Beach. Part patisserie, part boulangerie and part salumeria, the restaurant features counters serving everything from pizza and ceviche to wine and pressed juices. On our last outing, we devoured the grilled salmon over greens, and can hardly wait to go back for more.


In the courtyard of Soho Beach House, Cecconi’s is a modern day classic Italian restaurant and favourite destination for the Gorgie household whenever possible. Like it’s London location, Cecconi’s serves hand-made pasta, seafood and dishes from Italy using the finest ingredients. Service is second to none.  The décor and bustling energy – just perfect.


Frankie Miami

For everything new and cool, Frankie Miami is where you’ll find us swooning over their fashion, jewelry, handbags and more.  Founded by two best friends who clearly have their pulse on the latest trends from emerging and established designers from around the world, whether your price point is high or low, you’ll find something here.  Their website is always worth a browse too.


Barry’s Bootcamp

Described as the ‘best workout in the world’ and with a celebrity following that includes Victoria Beckham among many others, Barry’s Bootcamp is not your average workout.  Combining cardio with weights, it’s a full-body sweat session of the hardest, best kind.

SOL Yoga (coming soon!)

Now in the home stretch until its official opening, SOL Yoga in Miami’s Wynwood District is going to change the way you think about yoga. Along with offering a variety of vinyasa classes for all levels, expect a modern, newly renovated studio featuring infrared heat, along with luxury amenities, a bespoke lifestyle boutique with products and apparel from around the world.  It’s where wellness dreams come true. We know this to be true, as we’re also the owners and can hardly wait to welcome you!


With so many juice places, it’s a hard task to choose just one, so we’ll go with two: Dr. Smood and Jugo Fresh Both offer the best of cold-pressed options, mylks and smoothies along with breakfast and lunch bowls, supplements and other healthy goodies.  If Charcoal is your internal cleanser of choice, go for our favourite, the limonada negra at Jugo.  And if matcha is your energizing bullet, let the baristas at Dr. Smood work their magic.  Either one you choose, you’re in good hands and with license to indulge in a few coconut peanut butter balls 🙂


The Museum of Ice Cream

Ice cream lovers, on your mark! Now on for a limited time, the Museum of Ice Cream in Miami’s Art District is where sweet indulgence with a dash of nostalgic dreams, come true. A traveling show, reserve tickets while you can, and check out their photos on Instagram for a taste of what’ll you find.


GEE Beauty

We’ve been going to GEE Beauty for years, starting first in their Toronto location.  Owned and operated by the fabulous GEE girls, they take beauty to the highest, best degree.  From facials to brows, they’re our number one – same for the super amazing skin care products, makeup and beauty tools they carry in-store and online.  If you have time, plan ahead and book a facial or makeover. Or better yet, book both and thank us later.
