Best Avocado Eats West of Miami - Miracle Mile

Avocados are usually associated with the American Southwest and California, a regional delicacy that has spread across the continent. But, as it turns out, they’re not just from California. Avocados are grown all across the southern portion of the U.S., including Florida. As such, you can find delicious avocado in dishes across various restaurants in Coral Gables.

Green Toast

Since avocados are a very soft fruit, they can be mashed up and pureed very easily.  Depending on the desired consistency, and with a few other ingredients to help give it a more robust flavor profile, it can easily be used as a spreadable topping for toast or bagels. 

Starbucks Coffee locations recently started selling their Organic Avocado Spread. But it doesn’t have to be pureed to be enjoyed. For example, Green Life Organic Bistro offers up avocado slices on toast, a different take on a fruit topping for breakfast food that sounds delicious.

Ensalada de Frutas

Just like tomatoes, avocados tend to be considered vegetables instead of  Giardino Gourmet Salads fruits, which might be one reason why avocados end up in salads so often. offers one possibility with their Habanero Salad, mixing avocado, tomato and plantain chips for a flavorful dish that won’t burn your tongue. 

If you are looking for a little more zip with your avocado, Panera Bread’s Southwest Chile Lime Ranch Salad with Chicken should be an ideal choice, with Panera’s own chile lime rojo ranch dressing mixed in with smoked chicken and chunks of fresh avocado on top.

Cocina Mexicana

By far, the most commonly known use for avocados in food is guacamole. Good guacamole, however, is more than just mashing up avocados. There are countless variations on it, from thin and soupy to thick and hearty. Talavera Cocina Mexicana’s version of guacamole comes with cheese and handmade tortillas for a delightful dipping appetizer to be shared with friends and family alike.

Miracle Mile Dining

These and other dishes can all be found in and around Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. All you have to do is explore the many fine restaurants in the area to find out the best place to get avocado in Florida.
