Miami’s entrepreneurial scene is blowing up spanning the entire breadth of the city and beyond. With this growth in start-ups and local businesses, co-working have expanded, offering great places for a brainstorm or presentation. Sometimes though, we need a space that can serve up more than just a table and chairs for a meeting. Whether it’s a work lunch locale, a meeting, or just a place to hunker down while experiencing Miami magic, here are our top gems:
It’s more than just a museum gift shop and cafe, it’s a chance to take in Miami’s history surrounded by perfectly curated style. Boasting one of the best little-known happy hours, the Design Store + Coffee Bar is just as low-key as you need. The only distractions you’ll have are all the amazing selections on the shelves!

Another great new addition to the Little River area, Imperial Moto Cafe is easily one of the coolest gems in the city. Their coffee is delicious, with tons of creative options and flavors. But it’s really about the ambiance here. A motorcycle shop posing as a cafe, with tons of vintage finds and cool swag.
One of the neighborhood’s greatest staples, everything about Cafe Demetrio fits perfectly in Coral Gable’s Mediterranean inspired landscape. It’s old-world in every way, being around since 1991 and focusing on artisanal food and amazing coffee and pastries.
If you’re looking for a meet-up spot with an epic view, you really can’t go wrong with The PAMM. Taking in a coffee or lunch at Verde is a great way to start. We love perusing their gorgeous store for creative inspirations, but the real vibe is on the steps or swing chairs outside.
There’s a reason this place successfully replaced a Starbucks: they understand atmosphere. It’s got a very Parisian way of making you feel classy while getting your work done or picking up a cafe au lait. Cafe Creme is a local favorite coffee shop that has expanded to other spots around town, but you really can’t beat the original. Hop over to MOCA across the plaza to get those creative juices flowing.
For fans of Brothers & Brawlers hang in Wynwood, they’ve embarked on an awesome new partnership with Selina for The Tower Hotel. Before the historic hotel opens, though, they’ve popped up at a new spot in the arts district. It still has the vintage and mixed-use charm of its predecessor while infusing Miami’s history everywhere. There’s a library equipped for working and meeting, plus a whole lot of espresso.
Urbanica Meridian Hotel is in a quaint and quiet part of South Beach, away from the crowds and loud travelers. It’s a on-trend boutique hotel that’s full of light and boasts an industrial-meets-rustic aesthetic. Their cafe is cool and friendly with local favorites like Panther Coffee and Zak The Baker goodies.
The bookstore itself might not be the same size as its former location, but the contents are highly-curated. Bookstore + Kitchen‘s impeccable selections give a unique view into the world, just as Chef Adriana’s cooking. It’s a bright and airy space, featuring deliciously local eats and enough quiet to get ahead in a meeting.
The Filling Station Loft’s first F&B tenant, Vice City Bean, has brought all kinds of refreshing brews to the A+E District. They have homemade goodies, local selections, and some of the most elevated grounds in town. Plus, the modern industrial digs are full of light and just out of the way to make any work day worth your while.
