Top 5 Coffee Shops in South Miami
The famed Miami collegiate lifestyle isn't complete without a round trip to an impressive collection of coffee shops, so grab your backpack and start exploring — you're in South Miami, "The City of Pleasant Living" (and delicious coffee)!
A municipality bordering the University of Miami, Coral Gables, and Pinecrest, South Miami allures locals and tourists with its leafy residential areas, luscious parks, and a vibrant downtown filled with historic buildings, restaurants, and unique shops.
With its "small-town" feel serving as a welcome contrast to big city living, South Miami is the perfect destination for a pleasant and revitalizing Miami travel experience, especially for those who love nature and shopping side-trips, without the pressure of traffic, noise, and throngs of tourists!
But, first — coffee!
Here are the top five coffee shops in South Miami.
