Caffe Nikki, is an new idyllic French CafÃ© located in the leafy courtyard area of Nikki Beach perfectlyÂ located at One Ocean Drive, Miami Beach. Featuring a wide array of coffees and teas, homemade croissants, quiches, pastries, European marmalades, and fresh bread daily from Zak The Baker, CafÃ© Nikki is the ideal setting for morning breakfasts, casual conversations and afternoon daydreaming in the heart of the South of Fifth neighborhood.
A must-try is one of their specialty smoothies to start the morning.Â Since they are made with only fresh fruits, they are on the lighter side, but that doesn’t take away the flavor.Â Don’t forget their croissants, either butter or chocolate, which are freshly baked and handmade every morning. Some croissants have an almond filling on the inside, giving it a sweeter taste.Â Pastries and croissants are baked daily in a Pavailler oven imported directly from France, and served with Alain Milliat marmalades and juices from Lyon.Â And, of course, how could it be a French CafÃ© without macaroons? Be sure to sample a few, since they have many, many flavors to choose fromÂ – all of them exquisite.
A charming and eclectic space beneath sprawling trees and twinkling bistro lights, CafÃ© Nikki features a mix of South of France inspired cafÃ© furnishings like cozy seating areas surrounded by towering book shelves, suspended wicker swings, and a long harvest table for family get-togethers and meetings with friends. As opening specialÂ CafÃ© Nikki invites the neighborhood to experience theirÂ magical ambiance and French CafÃ© fare by offering FREEÂ coffee to all South of Fifth residents through September 30, 2015. CafÃ© Nikki is open Monday â€“ Saturday from 9am til 4pm, with two hours FREE parking for cafe costumers.
