hot new menu for the summer!

Ever since opening in the summer of 2014, we have tried to bring our customers the freshest locally sourced ingredients, while preserving our European touch. Starting with a very simple menu including fresh daily baked pastries and quick lunch options such as sandwiches and salad, we have since then tried to refine our options to give our customers a broader choice.

Over the time, working with quality suppliers, we have implemented a heartwarming breakfast menu and added elaborated dishes to our lunch selection, including a daily changing special.

Despite these changes, regulars can still grab their morning coffee and favorite treats that made MIAM a local staple of the neighborhood.

With the help of our skilled head Chef Nakia Arnold, we are now ready to tweak our bistro menu with creative and tasty flavors in a unique industrial-style coffee shop setup.

miam (mjam) n.: the french equivalent to "yum"

In August 2014, Owner and Founder Alexis Jacot opened the doors of MIAM in the corner of the iconic Wynwood Building in Miami’s world-renowned edgy arts district. MIAM boasts a simple, fresh menu offered in a place where people can gather and enjoy fresh and homemade food and drinks all day long in a relaxed atmosphere.

MIAM believes in taking the time to prepare all their food with love and care. The type of care that has the power to make everything a little better; from the ingredients they source to the way they prepare it, their goal is to bring customers comfort and joy with all they do.

Whether it is a wholesome breakfast, a healthy lunch or a freshly-prepared afternoon snack, MIAM brings homemade dishes to Wynwood using the best organic and locally sourced ingredients available.

But they don’t stop there, they are also working hard to bring their community together and show the world the magic that lies behind Wywnood! With the MIAM boutique, they have partnered with local brands to bring customers Wynwood’s best designer and products, as well as fine grocery products sourced from all over the U.S.

Alexis jacot

Born and raised in the small town of Neuchâtel in the French speaking part of Switzerland, Alexis Jacot graduated from the Ecole hotelière de Lausanne, a Swiss hospitality university. He then worked for Lenôtre, a famous French catering company in Paris, organizing international events in Europe. In 2009, Alexis had an opportunity to join the Procter & Gamble European headquarters in Geneva as Travel Retail Marketing for famous fragrance brands.

In 2012, his wife got a job opportunity in Miami and they decided to live a new adventure abroad. While discovering Miami and looking for a space to open his own restaurant business, Alexis fell in love with the Wynwood Art District and especially the Wynwood Building. This location was the perfect place for him to bring his idea of a Café where everything would be made from scratch and/or would come as much as possible from local suppliers/artisans.

EXECUTIVE CHEF

NAKIA ARNOLD

Chef Nakia Arnold was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. After graduating high school, he accepted a position at The Millennium Hotel in downtown Cincinnati as a steward. While working as a steward, he would observe and assist the cooks doing prep work and other culinary tasks.  A few months later, one cook was unable to cover his shift. Chef Arnold stepped in as a replacement and was offered a cook job after the shift.  He began working with Chef Jean Lafont, who mentored him and gave him an introduction of the hospitality industry.  After 3 years at the Millennium Hotel he left to gain more knowledge in the culinary field.  He found a position at Nicola’s, a high end Italian restaurant specializing in Tuscan cuisine.

In 2002, he moved to Miami to attend culinary school at Johnson and Wales University while working nights as a cook at various restaurants such as Pescados Seafood in Merrick Park and Mendoza.  After Mendoza closed, the new owner hired him to be their Executive Chef for Marinheiro, a Portuguese restaurant where he led the kitchen for two years.  After leaving Marinheiro, Chef Arnold worked at Eos Restaurant for a year and then relocated to South Beach as the executive chef of a wine bar called the WD 555.

In late ’16, he was named Chef at MIAM in Wynwood. Chef Arnold describes his cooking style as very western Mediterranean driven, with a strong emphasis on the use of fresh seasonal and local ingredients.

how to kill a day (and night) in wynwood

It’s hard to miss Miam Café (that’s not a typo, it’s French for “yum”), which is housed in a hold-on-let-me-grab-my-phone, graphic black and white striped industrial building. Here you come for the excellent espresso drinks and the not-too-filling European fare. We like the Crottin Goat Cheese salad on toast with dried figs or the Miam Club with shaved turkey, tomato and avocado.

This where to drink really good coffee in miami

While Panther seems to get all the coffee love in Wynwood, Miam is still a notable go-to java spot. It's name literally means "yum" in French, and many in the neighborhood would agree with plenty of grub and coffee, it's a popular meeting spot for artists and locals alike.

miam cafe is wynwood's best-kept secret

Between art-filled walls and quiet side streets, find Wynwood’s Miam Café. If you don’t frequent the neighborhood, the petit restaurant and cafe might have slipped from your radar. That is, until now. 

The bistro is hidden inside the black-and-white Wynwood Building. Among quiet offices, including yours truly New Times, Miam is usually bustling with locals.

SPECIAL EVENTS

MIAM hosted a few pop-up dinners with famous local Chefs, such as Brad Kilgore from Alter. Many photoshooting, movie scenes and TV commercials were taking place at the Wynwood Building and at MIAM, such as Longchamp, Colgate, KFC and many more.
