Cane A Sucre: North Miami's New Baguette Haven

The North Miami corner that used to host Dogma, and before that, Pancho Villa, now holds four month old baguette sandwich shop, Cane Á Sucre, and it's quickly becoming North Miami's neighborhood joint.

Owners/brothers chef Michael and Sinuhe Vega, former owners of the Midtown spot Uva 69, previously had another restaurant also called Cane Á Sucre -- its first home is where Midtown's Tapas y Tintos now rests but the Vega brothers were forced to look elsewhere due to the landlord "increasing the rent by eight times as much" as the original agreement, says Sinuhe. Though the narrow stretch of indoor space has limited seating with only bar stools lining the wall-to-wall windows facing Biscayne, the lime green umbrellas outside offer a dose of shade on the busy corner that it sits on.

Nearly all seats were occupied on Saturday afternoon -- with newbies and regulars pouring in. Why such a commotion over this fairly new place?

For starters, it stands out -- fast food chains like Taco Bell and McDonald's are just a block south of it and Burger King sits just a few blocks north -- and there's nothing like it in the area; customers ranged from Post Office workers, to city officials to families to girlfriends catching up over lunch, all in search of fair-priced healthy and delicious food.

The fresh baguette sandwiches can be purchased by the half or by the whole, my "El Milano" came with fresh mozzarella which had a cloud-like consistency that gently overflowed from the warm baguette and the shaved prosciutto would satisfy any salt craving.

Perhaps one of the most intriguing facts about this restaurant is that they make everything from scratch, from the sauces to the dressings and even their own mayonnaise. "El Cobb" salad looked like a master-piece as thick slices of avocado enshrined the bed of lettuce and veggies.

And the soup -- oh my -- even though a hot liquid dish may not immediately come to mind with our heavily humid atmosphere, the cream of vegetable soup could be summed up in one word alone: divine; its creamy butternut-squash taste was the highlight of conversations as people buzzed about it while they sipped from the small sample cup and ended up ordering a whole serving of it.

Breakfast sandwiches are also served and can be well paired with a beverage from the barista. One recommendation for the Vega brothers to incorporate: smoothies, that would be the icing on the cake.

Speaking of sweets, try the mango cheesecake with white chocolate emulsion or the $3 sangria (on select days). Go anytime from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Monday thru Saturday and discover North Miami's tasty gastronomic gathering spot.

It would be nice to include a link to the restaurant if available, a menu, or even an address would be nice for those of us who've never been there.
