Now that we’ve celebrated the new year, there’s another celebration coming up: Día de los Reyes Magos (Three Kings Day). But where do we find a Roscon de Navidad in Miami? I asked Coral Gables Love readers to share their favorite restaurants and bakeries that sell the traditional dessert bread: Roscon de Reyes.
The result is a list of Spanish, French, and Latin American eateries in different South Florida neighborhoods selling their version of Roscon de Navidad! Do you have a Miami restaurant or bakery that should be included in this list of best Rosca de Reyes? Let me know in the comments or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Rodilla (Best Spanish Roscon de Navidad in Coral Gables, Brickell & Wynwood)
Only a few days left to experience the Christmas Roscón de Rodilla.
Made in the Wynwood bakery by their Master Pastry Chefs. They have expressly traveled from Madrid to Miami to be able to prepare the same recipe that they enjoy in Spain. With healthy and natural ingredients, maintaining its fidelity to the classic recipe, with or without cream, and decorated with almonds, sugar, and candied fruit, as tradition dictates.

2. Bachour Roscon de Reyes (Best Mexican King Cake in Coral Gables & Doral)
Reader Amy, got her Mexican style King Cake (Roscon de Reyes) at Bachour Bakery in Coral Gables last year. I didn’t know the difference between the Mexican Rosca de Reyes and the Spanish Roscon de Navidad so I looked it up. Basically what I found is the Mexican version is often referred to as a “bread” more than a cake, and it’s prepared without the creamy filling you find in the Spanish version. Have you tried both? Do you agree? Let me know if your thoughts in the comments!
Bachour will be accepting orders until January 4 for pick up January 5 and 6 . Call 305-203-0552 or order at one of their restaurants. Antonio Bachour has a location in Doral and in Coral Gables:
