So fresh, so yummy! & lastly, the service. Lee is the kindest soul ever and she makes me feel at home when I walk in! 10/10 would recommend. This was a wonderful gift from my daughter for my birthday. We spent the evening preparing healthy Thanksgiving side dishes and I was amazed that healthy also meant super tasty and fun! We made gluten free corn bread muffins, quinoa stuffing, cranberry... sauce, roasted Brussels with lemon aioli and creamy cauliflower mash - all really delicious. Our chef was amazing - friendly, informative and made everyone feel welcome. Everything was spotlessly clean and beautifully done. We will be back again - thank you!read more Great food! Great service. I love it here! I highly recommend Real Food Cafe to all my friends. What a great find! This is a hidden gem we stumbled on after moving to the Shores. We have tried so many healthy food places but it’s so hard to find one that is consistently good. This is the one! Everything I have tried has been on point. I love the... Miami Spice Bowl, Impossible Burger, Taco Salad, Inka Bowl.... cannot wait to try the rest of their menu. Staff is super friendly & service is great too!!!

Real Food Academy: More About Us
At the Real Food Academy, our cooking classes in Miami for kids and adults are all about good times, good tastes, and good eating habits. Founded in 2008 by Head Chef Maria Cummins, the mission of the academy isn’t just to teach kids how to cook delicious meals, but also to teach them what types of ingredients to cook with. These are the words we cook by at our cooking school in Miami, Florida: “We don’t change the dish, we change the ingredients!” This allows our little chefs to cook what they enjoy while using healthy, all-natural substitutes that are better for them, and that taste better, too!
After more than a decade in business, Maria and her husband continue their culinary mission by offering an expanding catalog of cooking camps and classes at our Miami cooking school, including Saturday kids’ cooking classes, Mommy and Me classes, after school programs, and even professional culinary courses and classes for adults.
We also offer private cooking classes in Miami for birthday parties, corporate events, or any other type of get-together, where one of our professional chefs will design a custom menu for the celebration.
