Cane a Sucre in North Miami Beach: Fig, Gorgonzola, and Honey With French Wine
The lunch special includes a half of any sandwich and the soup of the day for $6.50. On a recent Saturday afternoon, the soup du jour was leek and potato. Parsley livened up the normally simple flavor combo. As for the sandwich, a standout is Le Fig, made with Gorgonzola cheese, fig confit, fresh oregano, walnuts, and a drizzle of honey on warm baguette. It's a great choice if you're looking for a nontraditional option.
Mango cheesecake ($4) is the star dessert of the bistro. It comes topped with mango purée and a dollop of white chocolate emulsion on the side. Other tempting options include chocolate and praline mousse crunch ($4.95), guava and cream cheese bread pudding with caramel sauce ($4.95), and assorted homemade cookies.

Flaky and fluffy chocolate croissants ($2.50) proffer a semisweet chocolate filling, which could've been more abundant. Cane also offers guava and cheese turnovers (much like a Cuban pastelito, $2.50), almond croissants ($3.50), and butter croissants ($2).
