Do you live in the Miami area? Are you looking to visit Miami soon? I have found the perfect local treasure that is a treat, literally, a treat!
Why not make this one of the locations a stop for lunch for one or more savory pie, such as beef or chicken empanada or maybe a pot pie like mom used to make. Follow it up with a slice of cheesecake or cookie; maybe the carrot cake is more your style, so be it, enjoy what you love.
Fireman Derek’s in Wynwood
Fireman Derek’s Bake Shop (FD Pies) has two locations, Wynwood and Coconut Grove. If you are local and need some sweets for a party or to butter-up your co-workers, delivery available through Postmates and Uber eats (with links right on FD’S website). If, however, you are not in Miami or even Florida, no worries, FD’s treats deliver to any U.S. state.
The owner is Derek Kaplan, a former Miami firefighter who delivers non-other than a firefighter style flavor to some fantastic treats. If you wonder what a firefighter knows about cooking, let me fill you in on a little secret. Firefighters, while brave, strong, and just a little crazy, are fantastic cooks. After they pull people out of car crashes and burning buildings, rescue a cat or two, they are tired and hungry, and with their downtime, they cook. Please don’t believe me…I dare you to eat only one slice of pie.
Fresh locally sourced ingredients go into every treat baked in-house. Support the local business owner who supports local businesses. Please stop by or order online and let us supply you with your baked goods.
