Sometimes you just want a pastry without waiting in a long line of tourists who saw the place on Instagram. When that’s the case, head to Madruga Bakery in Coral Gables. Sure, there will be plenty of UM students around and they aren’t open on Sundays, but Madruga is still the best bakery option in the area, hands down. They serve excellent breakfast sandwiches and Counter Culture coffee, along with a wide range of cakes, pies, and savory pastries baked on-site.
