B Bistro + Bakery has a new location in Coral Gables at The Collection, where you will commonly find a Ferrari casually parked alongside a Maserati.
What to expect: B Bistro + Bakery melted our hearts with their must-have buttery croissants at the Brickell flagship. Now at The Collection, the familiar street views behind the glass walls in Brickell have been replaced by a driveway lined with shiny toys. This indoor location is a bit more modest, yet you will find favorites on the menu along with new creations just for Gables.
The Menu: At B Bistro + Bakery, you can expect a menu primarily featuring breakfast and lunch classics. From the chef’s daily soup creation to house specials like the Smoked Salmon Scramble, there are several combinations to make your visit enjoyable.
What to order: We recommend ordering off the Panini & Toasts section. There are two favorites that made their way into our Hungry hearts.
Portofino Prosciutto Panini: All that cheese! We bit into layers of prosciutto and candied tomatoes between toasted sliced bread. Let’s not forget the roasted garlic puree and pesto. This plate brings a small side salad, so if you’re opting for a treat from the bakery, you may consider splitting this sandwich with your work-bae.
Spicy Tuna Toast: This one you won’t want to share! Our hungry eyes ate every last bite of the sushi grade tuna. It is drizzled with spicy mayo and a grilled nori puree that made a lively first impression. The thick toast under the tuna was warm in the center and crispy on the edges.
How to score a table: Walk-ins are most common at the moment, so you should have a seat when you arrive. However, B Bistro + Bakery at The Collection will soon offer delivery to your door.
