Mixto Books and Bistro – The only bookstore and full restaurant I’ve seen.
Okay, Mixto Books and Bistro is kind of a “Mix of two” – books and food.
Who likes reading?
But eating, count me in!
I went out to eat with a bunch of my fellow food blogging buddies at Mixto Books and Bistro to try out their menu and experience the ambiance.
Imagine crossing a used bookstore and full restaurant all in one.
Food at Mixto Books and Bistro
I tried a flatbread, sandwich, burger and all their appetizers.
One thing stood out.
Everything has a little Hispanic influence in it!
Their Queso Frito was to die for! Granted, it’s hard to go wrong with fried cheese, but I’d go back just for that appetizer <3
The rumor is that they are known for their coffee, drinks and non-dairy smoothies. I had their coffee, which was decent. I mean, it’s usually pretty hard to find bad coffee in Miami. However, I didn’t try a smoothie. I need to go back and have one!
Overall, the food was good. To be honest, I wasn’t blown away by it, but it was good. I’d go back.
Mixto Books and Bistro Vibe
The concept of having a bookstore and restaurant is unique. I don’t think people will buy books, but it gives the restaurant a special feel.
Mixto actually has a loft or upstairs to it that is the perfect place for a small gathering or intimate meal. It overlooks the rest of the restaurant which actually makes for a great view.
I would say it’s the perfect restaurant for a baby shower or classy party. It will also make a great weekend brunch location.
It has a clean, rustic ambiance with bookshelves and art lining the walls.
It’s a very well decorated restaurant.
Definitely give Mixto Books and Bistro a try!
