Originally from New York, Serendipity 3 started out in the 1950s as an over the top place for gigantic desserts that made you develop a decadent sugar rush. Opening up in Lincoln Road about 4 months ago, Serendipity 3 has brought Miamians its charming ambiance and rich, delicious desserts - along with a full dining menu, brunch menu, happy hour and bar. You can pretty much sit back at any time of day and enjoy your socks off!
|Heavenly Fast Lane|
I went for dinner and absolutely loved the place from the moment I walked in. Their cocktail menu is so creative and fun, I just knew I had to have one of their Serendipi-tinis. They had catchy names and even catchier ingredients: Cotton Candy, Cake and Heavenly Fast Lane. After an in-depth consultation with my super knowledgeable (and awesome I might add) waiter, Brian C, I decided to go for the Heavenly Fast Lane; a sweet concoction made with Vodka, a muddled mix of strawberries and kiwi, and finished off with cranberry and lime juices. My oh my, it was Heavenly indeed!

As I sat here eating each dish, I saw the parade of desserts going to the other tables. It was a vision of sweet temptations to my eyes! Sundaes, Milkshakes and Cakes... I want them all! But then I realized, how am I going to fit anything else in? Well, you don't come to Serendipity 3 and not have dessert. That's like going to New York City and not visiting Times Square. So I did what any self-respecting food lover would do. I unbuttoned the top two buttons of my pants and said "Bring It On!!"
|Frrrozen Hot Chocolate|
Just then I saw it; a mirage of sorts only it was real. It was the dessert I'd heard about only in urban legends but had never actually experienced. I knew then my adventure was about to reach new heights. I ordered the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate! A mix of several exotic cocoas and a variety of chocolates, blended together and topped with a cloud of whipped cream is what this champion of desserts is made of. It is so incredibly delicious and refreshing that you must, I repeat, you must try it for yourself to understand. I just had to close my eyes and slurp away; forgetting momentarily that I was in a public place.
Once this wonderful experience was over, I sat back and looked through their happy hour and brunch menus. They sounded phenomenal also. Happy hour plates and cocktails at $5 and $4 beers? Gotta try that. And their brunch menu left me planning my next visit. That's when you know a restaurant is good...when you walk out the door dreaming about the next time you walk in.
