Travel guide: Miami's hidden treasures

1. Morgans   
Right on the border of Wynwood and Mid-Town, Morgans is infamous for Sunday brunch, comfort food and their brioche French toast. Its easy to fall in love with little gems like these when the food is just that good, seriously. I love it, my friends love it. Even Dwayne Wade loves it. I now understand the saying "better than breakfast in bed." 

One thing I know for sure is that this museum did NOT exist when I was a fellow South Floridian (because obviously thats life). Dedicated to exhibiting international art of the 20th and 21st centuries, PAMM is Miami's new pride and joy. The museum itself is an architectural dream and the collection inside is something I'd go back for. If you're in Miami and you appreciate a good art museum, I'd definitely make some time for it.

I can't say that I'm the kind of girl who craves fried chicken and waffles but Southern cooking seemed to be the theme of my trip back home. Yard Bird was by far the best. You'll find this place a few blocks down from Lincoln Road dripping in mason jar lamps, typography and exposed brick (basically, my dream). All meals are made for sharing so its the perfect place to take close pals. Calling all foodies, this place knows their stuff.
We got Llewellyn's Fine Fried Chicken with Waffles and Watermelon.

If you're into animal taxidermy, fossils, crystals and basically anything of that sort, this is the place for you. I used to come here in my early teens and I make it a point to pop in from time to time when I'm in Wynwood. Its completely random but has this mystical feeling like you're in an old history museum. Whether you're in the market for a $5,000 zebra head or not, you'll definitely enjoy this store. 

I can't say that I've been to many french bakeries in Sofla but this one is my go-to. Its quaint, simple and their macarons are the best in town. They serve a wide range of wines and even offer the traditional french sweets and sandwiches. Again, a spot I found a few weeks before I moved. Take advantage Floridians!

I hope this helps any of you who are looking for some of the less obvious attractions in Miami 
(its not just beaches y'all) 
Safe travels!
