Four Goodies You Can Get From Miami—Without Making the Drive

We get it, Miami has no shortage of great restaurants and shops. But who wants to make that 100-mile (or more!) roundtrip drive to the 305?

Thanks to the internet, we can still enjoy goodies from our friends to the south without having to spend a cent on gasoline. Here are just a few places offering deliveries from Miami to your Boca Raton doorstep:

BON Chocolatier

The new business was opened by a Parisian couple—wife Deborah was a master pastry chef in Belgium, husband Yoann was in real estate—and their chocolate shop on Bay Harbour Islands even has an area where guests can watch them at work. Eat up from flavors like organic jasmine rose, crunchy salted peanut butter, organic basil lemon, blackcurrant French lavender, and a ton more. The customizable chocolates are also dairy free, vegan and kosher. The best part? They do same-day delivery to Palm Beach County. 305/397-8159;

Joe’s Stone Crab

Snow crab season returns Oct. 15! Sure, there’s places around town that serve snow crabs, but the mainstay for the claws is the iconic Joe’s Stone Crab. Open since 1913, we’ve made the drive multiple times to Miami Beach for the sweet crustaceans. However, if you’re not up for the trek, just head online to order snow crab claws, lobster tails, crab cakes, and Key lime pie to enjoy at your own dinner table. Don’t forget the mustard sauce. 305/673-0365;


Taste of Redland

Dragon fruit, lychee, passion fruit, mangoes, papaya, avocado, guava—these are just a few tropical goods that are quintessential Florida. Farmers down in Redland (which is way, way down south) grow a litany of fruits and vegetables you just can’t get anywhere else, and with Taste of Redland, you can order a box of your favorite produce. On the site, just click through your favorites (they let you know when they come in season, if they’re not ready yet) and it’ll arrive safely boxed in no time. Plus, you’re supporting local farmers, so it’s a win-win.

Don de Fleurs

Looking for a bouquet of flowers that will have its recipients’ mouth hit the floor? Check out Don de Fleurs, another husband-and-wife-owned business in Miami. In their collection, customers can order preserved single roses, square and round boxes of blooms, and acrylic roses. If you’re in a rush to get those flowers to someone, they offer same-day delivery to Palm Beach County. Whether you want to say “I love you” or “I’m sorry,” these forever flowers will stay alive to remind them. 800-386-5611;
