Awesome Camp

★★★★★
It is an amazing camp, my son attended and he loved every minute of it, he learned many skills while having fun!
- Azin Amirshahi

Amazing camp!

★★★★★
While visiting Miami this summer we signed our son up for camp. He loved it. Always coming home with a goodie he made. Always excited to try and cook it at home. Even starting to make up his own dishes. Thank you for a wonderful camp for our son. Too bad we don’t live here full time.
- K. Willow Ayers

Educational and fun!

★★★★★
My daughter attended camp for one week at the Real Food Academy. She had a great time and learned a lot of new concepts not only about cooking and baking but about nutrition and health. This experience has given her the opportunity to become more independent about her food consumption and to making healthier choices when it comes to food. She now enjoys creating new salads and using fresh and healthy ingredients in her dishes. I highly recommend the experience here!

We are happy we chose this camp!

★★★★★
My kids are fairly shy and were skeptical. My youngest had no interest to try this camp. But I am happy to say both my sons enjoyed it and came home happy to share about all they learned. It was a great choice and I will sign them up again. Also, good to note it was during Covid times and they were very clean and took the health of the kids seriously.

Awesome camp experience

★★★★★
What a pleasant surprise to come across your academy. My daughter Isabella absolutely loved it. Not only do I have a budding chef but now I have somewhere she was so happy and entertained while learning about food and cooking it! The experience has been so wonderful my older daughter is going to take a cooking class at your academy this July. And lastly, thank you for taking COVID-19 concerns so seriously, us moms truly appreciate it. We will definitely see you in the future. Thank you again, Marlene Valdes

Great learning camp!

★★★★★
My 9 year old daughter loved this camp! She not only learned how to prepare meals, they also teach the kids how to eat right and how to read labels. The only negative is that some of the foods may be TOO healthy for the kids. Its very Vegan style and not many kids like Veggie burgers. My daughter many times did not eat lunch because meals were not very kid friendly. They should be at least 2 choices for lunch meals.
- Berangely Cid

Great time

★★★★★
She had a great time learning ingredients, how they go to get her and the fabulous teachers. She had a wonderful week

Cooking Camp

★★★★★
This was an amazing experience for Angelina. She learned how to better perfect her cooking skills and in a healthy way. In addition, with all the issues with COVID-19, the camp was professional and safe with regards to taking precaution with our children.
- Michelle Febres

Truly Amazing Summer Camp!

★★★★★
I can't say enough good things about this summer camp. My 11 year old daughter would like to go every week of the summer! She is so excited every day at pick-up to tell me about what they cooked, the creative use of healthy ingredients, the great new friends she made, and the stories from the chefs. This is truly something our family looks forward to every summer and will continue to attend every possible summer!
- Tonia Long

Great summer camp

★★★★☆
My daughter loved this summer camp. She got to cook her own breakfast lunch and dessert in a healthy way.
- Linda

Never Dsiappointing!

★★★★★
From start to finish The Real Food Academy was an absolute pleasure to have at our school. Both Arthur and his Assistant were very quick with setting up and efficent with using all their time with the students. The expierence was a lot of fun for both the kids & teachers and we can't wait to invite The Real Food Academy back to our facility!
- Amanda Luis

Loving Real Food!

★★★★★
Never would I have imagined that our daughter would learn as much as she did in her week at the Real Food Academy! Each day she woke up excited to return. Her awareness of food, preparation, cooking and overall health have improved radically. She's connecting the dots! We couldn't recommend you enough. We'll be back!
- Charles Perez

Amazing Experience

★★★★★
My 11 year old son had an absolute blast during summer camp, so much so that he wants to go back for another week. The staff at Real Food Academy went out of their way to accommodate his food restrictions and he was still able to participate, cook and bake with modifications. We will be back again!

A SAUCY TIME

★★★★★
I love the Real Food Academy! In my last class we made our very own pizzas and I loved the sauce made from scratch. I also loved the vegan salad dressing which was delicious & important for me to learn bc my parents are vegan. Thank you RFA! I love you! @sofiatheprincesschef
- Sofía Sanchez

Super fun business event

★★★★★
Everything about this was superb. Our chef, Giovanni, was so fun and professional. Coordinating a group of 20 people is not super easy, and he did it perfectly, kept us on schedule, and gave us easy and clear instructions. The music was great, the drinks were great. I couldn't say enough positive things about this experience. Bravo.
- Lauren Moore

Madison's 11th Birthday

The best form of a field trip idea!

★★★★★
The Real Food Academy is the best form of a field trip idea. The academy comes to your school and shows the students how to cook and learn about nutrition. The students are engaged in learning as well as listening to music in between. Chef Arthur speaks from the heart about learning what is "Real Food".
- Grace C.

Healthy Food - Healthy Bodies

★★★★★
Our Step Ahead Program students had a great time and learned about making healthy food choices. A huge shout out to Art for taking the time to explain what types of foods are good for you and what type of foods are not good for you. Also, it happened to be Valentines day so the Strawberries and organic chocolate sauce was tasty and perfect for today's In House field trip. Thank you again Real Food Academy for making it a special visit today.

Rewarding Experience

This was the most interactive activity on a Saturday morning. My child was engaged for 2 hours. The parents were awesome and friendly. The cappuccino was delish.

Amazing

★★★★★
They loved it.

Events Specialist

★★★★★
The event was a complete success! Everyone had a great time and truly enjoyed the activities and the service. The only feedback was that in between the entrees, the attendees were hungry, so perhaps an opportunity to add some snacks in between would be good. Also, perhaps adding video with TV monitors throughout the event space would be a good idea, so that all the people seated around the tables can watch the Chef do the demos.
- Alicia Vigil Blanco

Great birthday

★★★★★
We celebrated our daughter’s 8th birthday and it was great . Everyone had a great time, Arthur, Maria and the staff were great and the kids LOVED eating what they prepared.
- Gily Kotler

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!Maritza

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 happy.

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!

The best party for kids AND adults! We celebrated our daughters birthday with tons of friends and family. The children were engaged from the time they walked in and the adults got to enjoy themselves. Amazing service from Chef Maria and Arthur. Thank you for an unforgettable time.

Chef Victoria is the sweetest and clearly loves teaching! I organized a team building and my often synical colleagues loved it. When organizing the event, Arthur was responsive, friendly and super helpful. The company went above and beyond to make sure we had an awesome time.

awesome experience for the kids.
Good, wholesome, and constructive time for the kids. The location has ample space and Chef Maria is awesome. My 11 year old daughter has been 3 times and loves it.
The people there was super nice and I like how the chefs would explain everything to the kids, especially when handling sharp objects.
The children had a great time making their meals and the adults has a good time watching them. Was a fun experience.
Everything about The Real Food Academy is great. The staff, the place, the cleanliness, the recipes, the cafè…Our 5-year-old loved coming here for their Summer Camp. Between cooking and other activities, days hit the perfect balance of life skills and fun. We will definitely come back!
We had a team event last night! Chef Maria was awesome, and patient. Great time had by all!
Such a great experience!! Girls had a blast!!♥️♥️
Tonight I went for a pasta class with my girlfriend and it was our first experience attending a cooking class. Our experience was beyond our expectations...
Chef Maria tough us how to make a Salad Tortellini with Ricota filling. Everything from the pasta to the dressing were all done from scratch. Main course was Tagliatelle pasta with Mushrooms. A simple pasta dish but it was delicious 😋. I highly recommend for the foodies that live to eat to try an experience with Chef Maria. Always can learn something new and useful that can make the dishes above the beyond. 👍👍 two thumbs up
Chef Maria and Arthur are some of the nicest people around! They’ve built a fantastic business around teaching kids and adults. Their “school” is in a light filled gorgeous space full of energy and happiness! I highly recommend them.
Such a fun and interactive experience. Highly recommend the Peruvian class though we plan on trying the pasta and sushi classes too. Beautiful space and knowledgeable chefs.
Awesome place!!!100% recommended
great experience. I recommend it
Taking kids cooking classes to another level!! Thank you!! ❤️🎄💚 Boys had a great time!
