North Terminal - Terminal D
This is the largest terminal at MIA, and it’s probably where you’re waiting for your American Airlines flight to JFK, which will probably get rerouted to LGA.
D5, Open 5am-10pm daily; D21, Open 5am-12am daily
Three locations on this terminal alone? In Miami, there’s no such thing as too much Cuban coffee.
D8, Open 5am-11pm daily
You already heard about Fig & Fennel, but MIA has the O.G. of the franchise, too. Get a table here for healthy(ish) plates like Kale and Quinoa Fritters, Buffalo Cauliflower Wings, Short Rib Empanadas, and of course, those desserts.
La Carreta Restaurant
D35, Open 5am-10pm (café) and 5am-12am (restaurant) daily
This sit-down restaurant is where you get the Cuban staples. Straight outta Abuela’s kitchen, go here for café con leche before your morning flight, or ropa vieja, roasted beef tongues, stuffed plantains, chicken al ajillo and flan when you find out it’s delayed.
