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!!! Get out and help support this local business. They deserve it! 🙌read more

I was hesitant to send my 13 y/o daughter anywhere due to COVID but temperature checks were taken seriously, social distancing took place, plenty of space & limited # of campers and masks at all times gave me comfort. My daughter had such a wonderful... time she is signing up for another week. In the mean time we bought the ingredients to all the healthy, yummy items she made!read more

Super nice and impeccable environment. Good quality knives, boards, etc. Chef Giusepe took the time to really start from the beginning and taught us how to properly handle and use the knife to cut the food. He was also very knowledgeable and very nice.... We were very lucky it was just 4 of us because it was like a private cooking class. I will come back again ad bring my friends.Thank you for a great class!Maritzaread more

The Real Food Academy Cafe is a fantastic hidden gem for lunch. Food is terrific; healthy; pure and full of flavor. And you can tell that the owners and service staff take great pride in what they do.My friend and I shared two dishes: sweet potato... noodle pad thai and an impossible burger. Both were delicious and the kind of memorable experience that will keep us coming back for more

My daughter took the class for the first time and she loved it! She signed up for the next two weeks. The atmosphere is modern and comfortable. Everything is so clean. She learned about cooking and how to make healthy choices. She made the family... breakfast the next day with minimal assistance from me. They really love what they do and they ensure everything flows smoothly and that the kids are more

Don’t eat here because it’s food that’s good for you! Eat here because it’s food that tastes GREAT!I’m usually the first one to pass on restaurants that offer healthy, good for you food and I’m the last one to pick anything that’s vegetarian or vegan... on any menu. Not here! Everything that I’ve tried is amazingly tasty. It’s also great value for your money.I’m so impressed with this place that I want to come take some of their cooking classes and maybe even host a cooking party here for some of my friends.Please do you tastebuds and yourself a big favor and come try this place out. I promise you will come back again and again!read more

Kids Rave About Our Cooking Birthday Parties

Don’t throw a birthday party that’s been thrown before! Pass on the pony rides and processed foods this year and throw a kids’ cooking class birthday party in Miami that’s as fresh and fulfilling as the food you’ll prepare.

Our location in Miami welcomes up to 140 little chefs (and their parents) for a fun and delicious cooking birthday experience. Optionally, our mobile service can drive to a party location of your choice (additional charges apply).

From the very beginning, we invite the client to be as hands-on as they wish to be during the planning process. Whether you want to hammer out every detail or leave it all to our professional and experienced staff, we’re ready to accommodate you.

The menus for our kids’ cooking class birthday parties in Miami include meals that children of all ages will love to eat, but they’re made with all-natural ingredients and healthy substitutions. At the Real Food Academy, we live by our mantra: “We don’t change the dish, we change the ingredients!” Not only will your guests get to eat something delicious that they’ve prepared with their own two hands, but they’ll eat healthy, too.

What About The Adults Who Come?

We understand how fun and endearing it can be for family and friends to watch kids during one of our cooking birthday parties as each one prepares and eats delicious, healthy food. But, on an empty stomach, the mouth watering sights and aromas that dance with our guests’ appetite may be too much to handle! :)

That's why we now offer both Savory and Sweet chef prepared food platter's, certain to keep your palate and stomach pleasantly occupied while you're watching.

When You're Here, You're Family

You are more than welcome to decorate the space, bring a cake, hang a pinata, or supply other activities and extras for your child’s cooking class birthday party. Visit our FAQ section below for further information about what our kids’ birthday party place in Miami is able to accommodate and read through our party packages to find a celebration option that works for you.

Yes, but for Executive and Top Chef parties only.  

If a  Piñata is important to you and you have ordered a Budding Chef party, you can add $100 for the extra time and we will gladly welcome your Piñata.

No.  In our experience, most times the cake plates, napkins etc. will be part of a theme.  We, along with the parents have found it better to leave this to the parents. 

However we are more than happy to help in a pinch.


You will receive a series of emails from The Real Food Academy after you make the deposit.  One of the emails will be regarding the Final Head Count.  That form needs to be returned to us no later than 1 day before the party.

We are surrounded by lots of free parking.  However, do not park in the CVS parking lot.  You may be towed if you do.  Also, if you park on the street you need to use the paybyphone app.
Absolutely!  The space belongs to you during the hours that you booked the party.  Feel free to decorate it however you like!
In some cases you can show up as early as 1 hour before your party time.  In other cases that will not be possible due to parties or classes happening before your party.  Every situation is different.  If you feel you need to arrive a full hour before your party time please call 786-395-0355 to inquire.
No. Not for parties up to 14 guests. But if you feel our staff have gone above and beyond your expectations, gratuity will be greatly appreciated. Gratuity can be paid in cash or by credit card the day of the event.

NOTE: For parties of 15 or more an 18 percent service charge will be added to you bill.
