Whether you're in the mood for something sweet, or want to feed your carb obsession, these nine Miami bakeries will hit the spot.

  • Karla Bakery

    In addition to the ultra-popular cupcakes, this sweet spot also cranks out mini churros and blitz puff pastry filled with marmalade and topped with caramelized syrup.

    6474 W Flagler St.; 305-267-9000

  • La Rosa Bakery

    A Magic City staple since the late '60s, this bakery offers some of the most impressive wedding cakes around. And while the caramel éclairs are also crave-worthy, the dinner rolls with ham spread and Spanish empanadas hit all the right savory notes.

    4259 W Flagler St.; 305-443-2113

  • Versailles Bakery

    You'll find plenty of Cuban-style desserts inside this Little Havana go-to sweet shop, including delicious puff pastries filled with cheese, ham or guava. And if you're craving something more like mom used to make, apple pie should do the trick.

    3501 SW Eighth St.; 305-441-2500

  • Paul Bakery

    This Lincoln Road carb center serves various baked goods that can be taken to go or enjoyed onsite in its cozy bistro setting. Items include anything from buche framboise nougat with raspberry mousse and coconut dacquoise cookie to its own version of warm sourdough bread made with mill flour and sea salt. 

    450 Lincoln Rd.; 305-531-1200

  • El Brazo Fuerte Bakery

    There's a huge assortment of tempting desserts, including Key lime tarts and napoleons, at this Cuban-French bakery, but the cakes are not to be missed. They'll even make them into any shape the customer wants, including a bottle of your favorite booze. 

    1697 SW 32nd Ave.; 305-444-7720

  • Taste Bakery Café

    Cookies, muffins and Misha's Cupcakes are all killer reasons to stop by this cute cafe, but the real reason is for its easy breakfast menu ideal for on-the-go eating. There are ample choices of bagels with different spreads, but if you really want something solid, the spinach and feta cheese croissant is the way to go. 

    900 Alton Rd.; 305-695-9930

  • Buenos Aires Bakery & Cafe

    This Argentine-style bakery offers all types of items to try including pastries, sandwiches, pizzas and wine. If you're looking for something truly authentic to take home, there's plenty of yerba mate, cider and Livenza to go around. 

    7134 Collins Ave.; 305-861-7887

  • Buns & Buns

    A brand new bakery in South Miami, this charming little spot offers combos like freshly baked ciabatta bread topped with lobster tail and melted leeks. For dessert, there's a lot to choose from, including hot chocolate buns served with dark chocolate and raspberry-pomegranate dipping sauces.

    5748 Sunset Dr.

  • Hugo & Victor

    This Parisian pastry and chocolate shop opened its first U.S. location in The Webster Miami, serving a plethora of elite sweet treats. The menu changes seasonally, but you'll always be able to enjoy always-in-style flavors like chocolate and Key lime.
