All Day Gourmet Espresso Bar
Crema Gourmet is a healthy take on the usual coffee and tea bar. Whether you need a pick-me-up shot of espresso, a beach day lunch, or a hearty weekend brunch, Faena Bazaar’s Crema Gourmet has got you covered.
Pull up a chair in Crema’s sun-dappled courtyard to enjoy an iced coffee, chai latte or decadent affogato prepared by experienced baristas. If you’re coming off the beach, a refreshing menu of juices, smoothies and açaí bowls pair perfectly with a smoked salmon salad or ahi tuna poke bowl. “We added a new berry açaí smoothie to the menu to help keep New Year’s resolutions in check,” said Crema co-founder Yiannis Sotiropoulos. Heartier dishes include the popular Open Face breakfast sandwich made with brioche bread, fried eggs, ham and Swiss cheese, bacon and aioli, as well as the Turkey Club sandwich, and filling plates of savory penne pasta.
(Insider tip: pasta dishes are $9 all-day every Thursday.) Crema offers half-price happy hour wine and beer to enjoy while taking in Miami’s pastel sunsets on the outdoor patio and bottomless mimosas ($19) served during weekend brunch in its tropical dining room featuring banana leaf wallpaper, ivory brick and rattan furniture.
Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy melt-in-your-mouth chocolate croissants, just-baked cookies, and dulce de leche-filled muffins fresh from the kitchen.
“Whether you’re shopping at Faena Bazaar, hanging out at the beach or exploring the city, our all-day menu has delicious options that will satisfy your palate and keep you going,” said co-founder Makis Paliouras.
