The Frances Restaurant, Bakery, Gelateria
The Frances (as its name suggests) serves food, baked goods, and gelato. It’s a Cuban spot in Hialeah with a small dining room, bakery counter, and ice cream parlor. We love their pistachio gelato. It’s sweet, nutty, has just a hint of salt, and is made in house. Order a sandwich while you’re here, like the andaluz sandwich. It comes with your choice of pork or chicken, plus fried peppers, muenster cheese, serrano ham, and a fried egg on a French baguette or Cuban bread. We like ours on Cuban bread with a thick cut of tender pork. And if you’re on the hunt for a Bengay or Amazon package-shaped cake, they can make that for you too.
