The menu at Pink Pie is always on constant rotation, after all they’ve got hundreds of amazing recipes up their sleeves, but with spring comes new flavors we’ve yet to try. Make your way to the mini pie shop to check out the new Carrot Cake, Dulce de Leche Almond, Passion Fruit, Matcha (it’s vegan and gluten free) and Fruity Pebbles. Don’t worry the Key Lime, Oreo Nutella, S’mores, Salted Caramel, and Guava are still up for grabs.

Another Wynwood favorite with plenty of flavors to try — this spring check out the Lychee Sorbet. It’s crisp and refreshing, just like the first days of spring.
Chef Silva oversees M House’s desserts and this spring he’s got a some amazing additions, including his Chocolate Tree – a beautifully crafted sponge cake infused with Grand Marnier and Valrhona chocolate. You’ll find other desserts like the Passion Blue, a light and delicious blueberry mousse with passion fruit gelée topped with fresh sorbet, blueberry compote and fennel cookie crumble; as well as his take on a classic Tarte Tatin with grilled pineapple served with Greek yogurt ice cream.
Make way to the Matador Room for its new spring delights. Seasonal desserts new to the menu include the refreshing Violet Pavlova with rhubarb and lychee, and Meyer Lemon Tart with mint meringue.
