All meals at Mi Vida are vegan, since for us, it is first and most important to be animal caring and therefore encouraging a vegetarian diet and a healthy conscious lifestyle. We avoid microwaves, frying, preservatives, genetically modified food and high fructose corn syrup in our kitchen.
The cafe offers a very friendly, relaxed and casual environment. The indoor sitting area is not too big, but we can and do accommodate large parties upon reservation. There is outdoor sitting at the back and front of the restaurant. And there is parking at the back. Some friends have described our place as a tiny health heaven on a busy road. Located on one of Miami's main avenues, Mi Vida offers a break from the many fast food chains around town. Providing tasty vegan and raw cuisine using only organic produce.
All orders are made fresh to order with a view of the chef preparing your meal. Freshly pressed juices, smoothies ,daily specials and more.
|ABOUT THE CHEF:
Born and raised in the country side of a small town in Argentina, Daniela grew up playing in the outdoors, climbing trees, recollecting wild fruits, running through huge fields of wheat grass, picking up watercress by the streams or just adventuring into any direction away from home.
In her late teen years, right after moving out from home, she made the choice to quit eating meat. But it was not an easy one, the availability of information on vegetarianism was scarce at the time. Especially in Argentina, the land of steaks. But luckily, her first boss was a very well informed vegan hippie tree lover extremist. She served as inspiration and taught Daniela the ways into a true green life style.
From there it was all about keep learning and keep moving.
After graduating from Miami's LE CORDON BLEU culinary school in 2005, Daniela worked for years as a very succesful private chef and with the hopes of bringing health consciousness to a lovely community that’s very much ready for a change, she opened her very own 100% vegan and organic restaurant in Miami last year, Mi Vida Cafe.
