Mixto Books & Bistro

If you are the kind of person that enjoys delicious food, great ambiance, and a good book then this Bistro in Miami Springs is the place for you!

Mixto Books & Bistro is home of the Guayabitas Milkshakes and the best croquettas and fritas in town! Trust me, you are going to want to take a drive to this hidden gem and afterwards you can explore the beautiful city of Miami Springs which was founded in the 1920s and was originally named Country Club Estates.

Here are some pictures of the delicious options on the menu and my favorite spot in the restaurant:

Good Morning!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I know I did because I was able to catch up with old friends by my Grad School days. I met up with my now friend then fellow intern and now friend then supervisor (I guess you could call her that, I was her intern). We had so much to catch up on and what better way to do that then having a delicious lunch and perfect weather. It was a cool 60 degrees in South Florida yesterday. We decided to meet at Gulfstream Park which if you haven’t been I highly recommend it. You can enjoy some shopping, dining, and catch some horse racing. It’s definitely an experience! Needless to say, we all had a wonderful time.
