Bonjour, Miami! Maman Makes an Impressive Florida Debut in Wynwood

Kate Cooper
On Feb.9, French-style and NYC-based restaurant Maman made its official Miami debut in Wynwood. Open seven days a week, Maman is the perfect place to gather with friends over brunch or lunch, grabbing a mid-day sweet treat, or just to relax over one of their many drink options.

Maman, the Instagram famous French-inspired bakery from New York City, has officially debuted in Wynwood, establishing its presence within the trendy Miami restaurant scene by welcoming locals with its delectable treats and mouthwatering scents wafting through the bustling cafe alongside a menu that will leave patrons wanting more.
Since its opening on Feb. 9, Maman’s spacious interior with its chic, understated Provencal charm and seaside-inspired decor, and its dazzling array of pastries and savory bites, made the eatery an instant viral sensation. While the long lines may seem daunting at first glance, it’ll be worth the effort as one will leave satisfied with their box of inviting treats, especially if they try Maman’s most popular selections.
Made with orange cheesecake filling and topped with chocolate crust crumbles and candied oranges, the orange chocolate cheesecake cube ($7) is a must-try. The combination of the creamy, luscious filling with the chocolate crumbs, makes for the perfect not-too-sweet bite. One of their croissant creations that is definitely recommendable is their new PB&J cruffin (croissant and muffin hybrid) that highlights a classic childhood favorite but with a modern twist. With its smooth peanut butter cream and cherry jam, it is childhood nostalgia in one bite.

Maman is known for its pastries, which includes seasonal and location-based exclusive items. From the extensive pastry selection, popular choices are the orange chocolate cheesecake cube, its nutty chocolate chip cookie, and the cheddar scallion scone. Another highlights are the PB&J cruffin and the quiche “Sophie” which is one of the eatery’s takes on a vegetable quiche. (Kate Cooper)

For those with an even sweeter tooth, Maman’s nutty chocolate chip cookie ($4.50).With macadamia nuts, almonds, walnuts, and dark chocolate wafers, the cookie does not disappoint. The combination of the rich dark chocolate with the nuts makes for the ideal treat, and it lived up to its reputation. The cookie was named as one of Oprah’s Favorite Things 2017.
For those who lean on the more savory side, Maman’s take on a savory scone is not to be missed. Made with cheddar, scallions, and Mike’s Hot Honey, the cheddar scallion scone ($4.50) is a mix of cheesy and buttery deliciousness, making for the perfect option for those who stick to the sweets after their meal.
Alongside the cheddar scallion, their quiche is the quintessential and classic option for lunch or brunch. With spinach, feta, and artichoke, “The Sophie” ($10) will not have one missing the traditional ham often found in the classic French dish. Besides one vegetable-forward option, other selections include the standard quiche Lorraine (parisian ham and comte cheese), and quiche Esther (butternut squash and kale).
Regardless of whether or not one leans more towards the inviting pastry case or the more savory dishes found on their extended sit-down menu, Maman has something for everyone to delight in. While the latest Miami hotspots have been flashy and all hype, Maman is neither and is worth the hype.
