How to spend the perfect Sunday in Pinecrest

Pinecrest’s history begins in the early 1900s, when Henry Flagler used it as a staging area for construction of the Overseas Railroad to the Keys. By the mid-1930s, Pinecrest became a travel destination as the first home for Parrot Jungle, which is now home to the south Florida favorite Pinecrest Gardens.

Want to dive deeper into Pinecrest? We’ve got a chill Sunday planned for you to explore the neighborhood and live like you live here: 


Start your day right with a hearty homestyle breakfast

Wagon’s West 

11311 S Dixie Hwy, Miami, FL 33156

Transit stop: 5 minute walk from Busway & SW 112 St on South Dade Transitway

We only have a handful of classic style diners in Miami, and Wagon’s West tops the list with large servings, great food, and classic Americana decor. It’s worth visiting for the interior alone, but throw in an omelet or french toast and you’ve got a must-visit restaurant. 


Connect with nature and your food sources

Pinecrest Gardens Farmers Market

11000 Red Rd, Pinecrest, FL 33156

Transit stop: 3 minute walk from the SW 111 St & 57 Ave bus stop

Swing into Pinecrest Gardens for their Sunday farmers market and stroll through stalls from local farmers and vendors, all while enjoying the setting of the gardens. You’ll find plants, produce, fresh foods, and more.


Rest your feet and get an afternoon pick-me-up 

Brewing Buddha and Art House 

8219 SW 124th St, Miami, FL 33156

Transit stop: Busway & SW 124 St

Brewing Buddha is a small-but-mighty coffee shop tucked in a plaza right off 124th St and SW 82nd Ave. Inside you’ll find a selection of unique beverages including cookies and cream cold brew, a s’mores latte, and an iced mango matcha latte. Get inspired by the rotating art on the walls and get ready for your last stop before heading home.


Grab a late lunch

Pinecrest Bakery or Daily Bread 

12101 S Dixie Hwy, Pinecrest, FL 33156 / 12131 S Dixie Hwy, Pinecrest, FL 33156

A short walk just to the other end of the block.

Transit stop: Busway & SW 124 St

Wrap up this Sunday adventure with a Pinecrest staple. Treat yourself to a little cheat meal at Pinecrest Bakery (¡hola, croquetas!) or get a delish platter of Mediterranean goodies from Daily Bread.
