Fashion lovers in the United States have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of a Dior Cafe stateside. Finally, their wait is over. After launching cafes at their Seoul, St. Tropez, and Paris locations, Dior has decided to host a pop-up cafe at their famous Miami location. If you’ll be heading south soon, the Dior Cafe in Miami is most definitely a place to see and also be seen. Learn more about this limited time fashionable pit stop and Miami restaurant!
The Dior Cafe is located on the third floor of the iconic Dior boutique on 39th Street in Miami’s Design District.
Located on the boutique’s third-floor outdoor terrace, the Dior café continues a longstanding tradition first established by Monsieur Christian Dior and the desire to spread his love for the art of entertaining and his taste in art de vivre. In keeping with this spirit, the new café offers seated table service featuring a concise menu of coffee, teas, juices and assorted fruits and pastries.
As one would expect, the decor of the Dior Cafe in Miami is a work of art in itself. It was designed by the acclaimed Doo Architecture.
Upon entering the space, guests will discover a prominent Toile de Jouy theme, recently modernized by Artistic Director Maria Grazia Chiuri for the Cruise 2019 collection with the addition of unexpected animals such as tigers, giraffes and bears. This iconic 18th century French print, which from 1947 adorned the walls of Monsieur Dior’s first boutique at 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris, is found throughout the space on decorative pillows and printed directly onto the terrace decking. Wild animals from the Toile de Jouy’s pastoral scenes are brought to life as oversized 3D sculptures that “roam” the space and hang from the trees, transporting you into a magical realm throughout the café.
The Miami restaurant is intimate, with less than twenty tables, so be sure to arrive early!
The cafe has a limited menu of coffee, teas, juices, fruits, and also desserts. Most notable to visitors is the cappuccino complete with the word Dior in cocoa powder on top! Visitors have warned on social media that the service is not fast, so don’t stop here when you’re short on time. Instead, visit when you not rushed so you can enjoy the Miami atmosphere of this stylish cafe.
