1. Mendez Fuel 3201 Coral Way, Miami, FL 33145

Fueling Miami's masses with craft beer, fresh-pressed juices, organic health food, and actual fuel (like, for your car), Mendez Fuel is situated in a Mobil gas station and car wash, and painted with Wynwood-reminiscent street art in its home on Coral Way. There are 16 rotating taps, from which you can enjoy a pint of beer at the bar or a growler to go, or choose from a massive stockpile of bottles. Sandwiches, wraps, and smoothes are made-to-order, and the cookies are even gluten free. Don't judge a gas station by its gas; judge it by its fuel.

2. The Mighty 2224 Coral Way, Coral Gables, FL 33145 (Coral Gables)

A gastropub with housemade sausage might not sound particularly special, but when you find out that their Sausage of the Sea has a mix of salmon, fresh octopus, dry sea scallops and herbs, you'll definitely want to make a beeline in that direction. Add to that their house-cured bacon, TVs, and rare craft German beers (some of which get mixed with duck into another housemade sausage) and the spot is a must-visit.
