Downtown Miami is starting to come alive and nothing provides more proof of this than the slew of new fabulous restaurants popping up! One such restaurant, First & First Southern Baking Company, is a fun, hip eatery providing Southern food and goodies. Think updated, chic and trendy Cracker Barrel, but with better food. The restaurant is deceptively large. When you walk past the outdoor seating and step inside you are greeting by a huge glass case full of treats. If the restaurant looks full, walk all the way to the back and you can probably snag a high top table.
They are still working out a few kinks with regard to service on busy days, but the food is oh so delicious. If the service is a tad slow, don’t worry cause you will get a ton of apologies and free dessert. We recommend arriving early for lunch and ordering the chicken and dumplings or try a salad with a side of mac and cheese.
Desserts are the main attraction at this eatery and the bread pudding is the must try dessert. It is made with Krispy Kream donuts, which sounds weird, but somehow makes one darn delicious dessert. The flavor, consistency and scoop of dulce de leche ice cream make the perfect dessert. Click here to check out the menu. They also sell whole cakes and take special orders, so grab a card and think of First & First for the next dinner party or birthday celebration.
If you peruse the menu you will notice that they serve breakfast from 7 am to 11 am and they are open on Saturdays! So, we propose giving downtown development a little nudge and planning breakfast at First & First one fine morning. We think your taste buds wont regret it, even if your waistline does!
