In the heart of Miami’s diverse culinary scene, Pura Vida stands out. Offering a mixture of colorful flavors and nutritious ingredients that automatically transport you to the beautiful and calming shores of what Miami truly is. This peaceful all-day café invites you with its welcoming ambience and love of serving healthy cuisine.

The menu at Pura Vida is a combination of flavorful, fresh, and local ingredients that make an explosion in your mouth, forming a utopia of flavors.
