Crème de la Crème

Dine, Lifestyle, Miami

Faena Bazaar has added Crema Gourmet Espresso Bar to its mix of upscale offerings including Curio’s coveted selection of lifestyle fashion brands, one-of-a-kind home décor and beauty salon services.


Located on the first floor, the gourmet café offers outdoor seating facing Collins Avenue, a cozy inner courtyard and a bright dining room featuring tropical accents from the banana leaf wallpaper to rattan furniture. 

Known for its handcrafted coffee and experienced baristas, guests can pop in for a shot of espresso, a latte, chai tea, or a decadent affogato any time of day. A range of healthy juices, filling smoothies, and acai bowls are also on offer. The food menu is just as appealing with all-day breakfast fare like flaky pastries, open-face breakfast sandwiches and turkey scrambled eggs, to name a few. Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy melt-in-your-mouth chocolate croissants, just-baked cookies, or a dulce de leche-filled muffin fresh from the kitchen.

Other options—perfect for a midday meal during a beach day, after an afternoon of shopping or while working from a sunlit table in the restaurant—include toasted baguette sandwiches (think prosciutto with mozzarella cheese, chicken club and tuna salad), as well as a range of fresh salads and bowls.

If you’re looking for something heartier, dig into tasty plates of penne pasta from chicken mushroom to salmon pepper to tomato basil (insider tip: pasta dishes are $9 all-day every Thursday). Cap off the day with a happy hour beer or wine under sunset skies (glasses of vino are half-off from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.). 

"When we were given the opportunity to open at Faena Bazaar,” said Yiannis Sotiropoulos and Makis Paliouras, co-founders of Crema Gourmet Espresso Bar, "we wanted to create a neighborhood spot that brought delicious food and drink to those enjoying the Faena District.”
