  1. Interesting question.....I've never seen a Haitian bakery.....I'm sure one exists somewhere.....Perhaps in North Miami / Miami Shores area.....Big Haitian community there.....

    Ft. Pierce, FL

    1. Very familiar with it. I am non-Haitian but I love Haitian cuisine, including the patisserie. New Florida Bakery is the gold standard, I believe. They have a good turnover and the most fragile, flakiest crust. Cayard's is good, too, but can sometimes be inconsistent and the pastry itself is a little denser. Brothers In Christ Bakery on NE 6th Ave is a literal hole in the wall, but their cod pastries are large, the pastry is soft and flaky (not as delicate and puffy as New Florida, though), and the filling in the cod pastries is incredible, with little bits of pikliz in it!
