LaMuse Café – A Whimsical Brunch Soirée Immersed in Art
LaMuse Café is located at the luxurious EPIC Miami hotel (270 Biscayne Blvd. Way) and nestled inside Avant Gallery –Miami’s celebrated contemporary art space that features an eclectic array of artists who specialize in painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed media. The café serves inspired bites, brews tasteful coffees and teas, and conveniently offers a Grab & Go option for those who don’t have time to tour its award-winning art gallery. Open daily for breakfast and lunch, LaMuse Café is set in an Alice in Wonderland-ish space that’s whimsical, lush, and always bold. Its menu playfully riffs on iconic muses and their artists known for unforgettable style and moxie.
Parisian chef Arthur Arnaize, formerly of L’Epicerie in Wynwood, helms the kitchen at LaMuse Café. Chef Arthur channels the best of European tastes into a menu focused on artful salads, creative sandwiches, refreshing seafood plates and vegetarian delights. His project with owner Dmitry Prut seamlessly merges art and cuisine in a way truly unique to Miami –a vibrant cafe nestled inside an eclectic, colorful, and imaginative atmosphere. Recently their open-air terrace has opened for dining, and what a beautiful gem of a space it is!
Now let’s get to what we came for- the food! The food in itself could be the art for this gallery! We started with their creamy and crunchy Muesli Bowl that was almost a shame to eat due to it’s presentation! The combination of juicy blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, crunchy almond flakes, fresh mint leaves, and chia seeds with yogurt all came together perfectly for this sweet and healthy start to the day!
We proceeded to try the main event- their brand new Instagram-approved ChocoDali Stuffed Croissant – made with a raspberry infused pastry cream, Nutella, and topped with fresh berries, I was already drooling before I even took a bite. Despite the heaping of ingredients, this stuffed croissant retained its light puffiness and the mixture of pastry cream and Nutella together was almost more then we could handle- in the best of ways! So many amazing flavors combined into one dish, we licked every last crumb!
After devouring our delectable morning sweets, we decided to end our brunch with a soothing cup of tea. The tea presentation was adorable and really continued to nail the artistic ambiance that makes this café so special. The tea tasted incredible, I got the Bombay Chai which was flavorful and sweet. The teacups were comforting and warm in our grasps, with that cute smile reflecting our exact sentiments- pleasure and happiness from a breakfast well dined in a unique and creative space.
Once finished eating, the fun is not over! You can then tour the gorgeous art space and gaze upon the myriad of colors and shapes that envelop the senses. The service was stellar, and overall I highly recommend you come and check out this spot with a friend or two! LaMuse Café also has an incredible lunch menu that’s worth to be tasted as well!
