Amazonica1250 S. Miami Ave., Miami
amazonicamiami.com Colombian-inspired oasis Amazonica, with locations in Upper Buena Vista and the Aventura Mall, has opened its newest outpost in Brickell. Since debuting in 2018, this tropical-themed sanctuary has become best known for serving two Colombian delicacies — cholados (a chilled treat layered with shaved ice, homemade fruit puree, fresh fruit toppings, and flavored syrup) and obleas (wafers filled with a variety of sweet spreads). The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and serves a variety of nostalgic street foods and baked goods like empanadas, tequeños, acai bowls, and pandebono — a traditional bread made of cassava and cheese. Amazonica also uses Devoción coffee sourced from Colombia. To celebrate Amazonica's recent opening, all visitors can enjoy a complimentary coffee beverage with a purchase at the Brickell location until the end of August. 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
