Nothing says celebration better than ice cream. A local favorite in Little Havana, this neighborhood ice cream, and sorbet parlor are combining all natural ingredients with a taste of sultry Havana to bring a creamy delicious dessert to Magic City treat lovers. Miami Food Porn recommends trying the Abuela Maria, an Azucar classic, made with premium vanilla ice cream mixed with chunks of guava, cream cheese, and crispy and sweet galletas. And if you’re in the mood to splurge, Miami Food Porn says an extra drizzle of guava on top can’t hurt. 1503 SW 8th St., 305-381-0369

Quinto la Huella

While Quinto la Huella is typically known for its meats, there’s another reason Miami Food Porn is drawn back there time and time again. “Their dulce de leche lava cake is insane.” The connoisseur of treats, Miami Food Porn, swears by it. And here’s a sneak peek: it’s a dulce de leche fondant, made with banana ice cream and a pecan cookie. Miami Food Porn’s pro tip? Go late night, sit at the bar, and order this volcan de dulce de leche with a glass of wine. Date night goals. 788 Brickell Plaza, 786-805-4646

Taiyaki

With summer 2018 in full swing, we Miami locals look for the ultimate cool confection to chill down the heat. And what spells summer better than three scoops of old-fashioned ice cream toppled on a waffle cone? But one small side street in Wynwood, a Japanese homegrown staple—Taiyaki—is putting a twist on traditions by offering flavors like matcha and black sesame swirl (Miami Food Porn’s personal favorite) in edible, fish-shaped cones. And take it from the pro herself, Miami Food Porn urges you to snap a picture quickly and “go to town before it melts all over your hands.” Miami Food Porn pro tip: The best part is at the bottom of the cone—so don’t give up before you get there. 143 NW 23rd St, 786-714-9008

Fireman Derek's Bake Shop

So many pies, so little time. With 23 pies to choose from, Miami Food Porn is giving Ocean Drive readers her top choice for number one. From much-loved flavors like Key Lime Pie to out of the ordinary savors like Guava Coconut Rum Cake, this precious bake shop has it all. But the Queen B of Instagram food says the limited edition, “Superbowl Pie,” is worth the wait and all of the cake. Made with ruffle potato chips, Oreos, peanut butter M&M’s, pretzels, dulce de leche, chocolate chunks and condensed milk, this succulent sweet is a spectacular treat. 2818 N. Miami Ave., 786-703-3623

Piononos

A pintsized bakeshop known for gourmet pastries, this hidden sweet shop is a Key Biscayne mecca for all things desserts. From bite-sized truffles made with chocolate, coconut, and walnuts to Nutella and dulce de leche cheesecakes, this pastry chef Maria Luisa Benavides, is baking it all and with a passion for perfection. But, Miami Food Porn says the must order is the strawberry pavlova, which is a walnut meringue with dulce de leche or Nutella, whipped cream and strawberries. And if you’re torn between the dulce or Nutella, Piononos will let you go halvsies! 328 Crandon Blvd. #217 Galeria Mall, 786-488-6770

Fatty Cakes

Just like a fat kid loves cake, we Miami locals can’t seem to resist a fatty cake. Especially when those cakes are cookie cakes layered with gummy bears, Twizzlers, popcorn, bacon, and Swedish Fish. These insane oversized cookies can be made to order with just about any ingredient—no flavor combination is out of the question. And to top it off, you can even build your own Fatty Cake with items ranging from KitKats to glazed donuts to rice crispy treats and more. For adventurous eaters, Miami Food Porn says to give them free reign and order whatever cake they think will wow you. Plus, Fatty Cakes ships nationwide so it’s a great gift for friends in any city.

Dasher and Crank

It’s a sunny June day in Wynwood. And the ice cream man sounds his alarm to deliver treats. 100 thousand children run out – but not to a white truck with ice cream cones, yet to a light pink craft ice cream shop serving up exotic frozen flavors. Coined, Dasher and Crank, this chef-driven creamery is churning out unexpected scoops like raspberry-wasabi, salted caramel and black licorice, and mint made black with activated charcoal. But there’s no flavor like a custom-made Miami Food Porn flavor. And if you’re looking to pick up a cone this summer, it’s coming soon! We assure you, it’s worth the wait. 2211 NW 2nd Ave (305) 213-1569

Pisco y Nazca

A Peruvian gastro bar is known for its ceviche, but famous for its dessert. Pisco y Nazca uses bold flavors to spice up traditional flavors, not only in the ceviche—but in the desserts too. Blown away by their Chocolate Dome, Miami Food Porn knew right away that this Latin fusion stomping ground was going to place high on her list. Crafted into a dark chocolate sphere with sweet potato custard and warm ganache, Miami Food Porn suggests you prepare your phones early and capture the magic on Instagram before it’s too late. 8551 NW 53 Street, #A101, (786) 805-434

Cielito

Trick or treating isn’t just for kids. Especially when you’re in search of fruity chocolate popsicles made from scratch with an artisan twist. Hormone-free, gluten free, and not to mention vegan, these creamy pops are oh so delicious and just the way nature intended. The perfect goodie for summer—and easy on the eyes too—Miami Food Porn says to trust her, and spoil yourself with a guava and cream cheese pop or a custom-made creation bathed in Cielito’s own chocolate faucet, topped with dried rose petals or torched meringue. And here’s the pro tip: Bring your pup along with you for dog-friendly ‘pup-sicles’ crafted in all different flavors. 2750 NW 3rd Ave, (305)-397-7392

Stubborn Seed

Who stole the cookies from the cookie jar? In the magic city, we Miami locals crown that cookie monster as Miami Food Porn and she's bringing them straight to you from her finger licking good food Instagram. Filling up her jar with 100 thousand snickerdoodle cookies—warm, gooey, and melt in your mouth—Miami Food Porn is highly recommending Stubborn Seed as Miami's top tier for all things cookies and spiked milk. So Sesame Street, we're introducing a new Muppet in town, and she wants cookies! 101 Washington Ave., 786-322–5211
