Days after Hurricane Irma, power outages remain widespread across South Florida. And don’t worry, you’re not alone in suffering from a severe case of cabin fever. Here, nine restaurants and bars stocked with hot food, cold drinks and unlimited Wi-Fi. (Because it’s time to catch up on email.)
Crema Gourmet Espresso Bar: It’s been days since we’ve wrapped our hands around a hot (or icy) cup of coffee. And warm croissants. And Nutella, strawberry and almond crepes. We can keep going…
169 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables; 786-360-4026 or cremagourmet.com
Biscayne Bay Brewing: There’s nothing like a chilled brew and a Netflix binge to cure those cabin-fever blues.
8000 NW 25th St., Miami; 305-381-5718 or biscaynebaybrewing.com
Coyo Taco: With or without Wi-Fi, tacos and tequila are always a good idea. (Don’t sweat it, though. There’s internet here, too.)
2300 NW Second Ave., Brickell; 305-573-8228 or coyo-taco.com
American Social: Sifting through dozens of emails whilst feasting on a cheeseburger never sounded better.
690 SW First Court, Brickell; 305-223-7004 or americansocialbar.com
Gin + Collins: Did someone say cold-brew station? That’s right. This Miami Beach hotel is replete with nitro cold brews, cozy chairs and all-day Wi-Fi.
2912 Collins Ave Miami Beach; 786-264-4720 or marriott.com
Panther Coffee: We’re regulars at this Wynwood coffee shop, where fancy cappuccinos and complimentary internet make a big difference.
2390 NW Second Ave., Miami; 305-677-3952 or panthercoffee.com
Yardbird Southern Table & Bar: The fried chicken and biscuits are enough of a reason to visit Yardbird. Add in free Wi-Fi and it’s a no-brainer.
1600 Lenox Ave., Miami Beach, 305-538-5220 or runchickenrun.com
Jack’s Miami: Homemade lasagna, air conditioning and Wi-Fi? We’ll be there.
2426 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-640-5507 or jacksmiami.com
The Aventura Mall:Think of this shopping center as a really big Wi-Fi hot spot area. Not to mention, stores are reopening daily and Pubbelly Sushi Market resumed normal business hours. (We’ll take a poke bowl, please.)
19501 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura; 305-935-1110 or aventuramall.com
