Minutes in Miami

Several months ago, while I was scrolling on TikTok, I came across a video of an immaculate brunch place. Flowers galore, beautiful Fine China, decadent cocktails, and unbelievable food. The short video displayed rose petal pancakes, iced coffee drinks, avocado toast, truffle french fries, and so much more. I was in awe. I read in the caption that the brunch spot, Little Hen, is located in Miami. I sent the video to Savanna, insisting we had to go just for the brunch. She said let’s do a day trip. I sent her a cheap flight (only 8,000 miles!) for a Saturday in April. She said let’s book it. Such started our single-day trip to the south of Florida.

This trip happened this past Saturday, on April 17th. Savanna came over at 5:45AM, we got an Uber to Hartsfield-Jackson airport, and before we knew it we were in Miami. We went immediately to Little Hen (thankfully with reservations - the place is impossible to get into without one!) and the food lived up to the hype. We shared rose petal pancakes, avocado toast, and truffle fries. They were all incredibly delicious and the scenery of plants and flowers was stunning.

We took our adventures to the Wynwood Walls and general Wynwood neighborhood. We spent some time in the funky, artsy district before heading to Miami beach. We shopped and ate around the tourist-y area for some time, indulging in fresh juices and Mexican food. Savanna had booked us reservations at the 1 Hotel’s Watr rooftop restaurant, so we headed there around 3. The rooftop bar and restaurant was stunning, with beautiful views of the ocean, refreshing drinks, and outstanding sushi. We stayed at Watr for several hours, having fun and enjoying the beautiful weather and atmosphere.

After a quick trip to the beach to dip our toes in the water, Savanna and I were already heading back to the airport. An Uber ride, flight, and another Uber ride later: we were back home by 10:30PM. Savanna and I had a great time in the warm and welcoming Miami, and are already trying to plan a day trip somewhere else…:)
