La Provence Bakery
This bakery is probably one of the best this side of the Atlantic. I have braved ten minute plus lines to eat breakfast here in what I would say is in the top 10 of the best in food in what Miami Beach has to offer. Newly renovated at Collins and Lincoln Road with a larger dining space painted in green to resemble it's namesake Provence and a shrunken kitchen. La Provence offers artisan french baking with natural ingredients in true French tradiion. Everything here is absolutely mind blowing and my favorite and there are many are the beignets. Baked properly dark there are three, plain, raspberry and chocolate hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Gorgeous classic pastries, croissants, danish and muffins and of course bread. My breakfast of a chocolate beignet and decaffinated cappucino was $5.30, not bad. This place is the real deal and the folks who steadfastly wait on line here would agree.
