Description: If you are looking for fine dining and a great atmosphere in Cape Coral look no further than Brew Babies Garden Bistro. Tucked away on quiet Lafayette street in downtown Cape Coral, Brew Babies Garden Bistro is easy to miss but well worth looking for. This hidden gem has become one of the Cape's best restaurants.Upon entering the garden courtyard you find yourself surrounded by a lush tropical garden. The bistro tables with white linens and the sound of the water from a fountain in the center of an open patio immediately makes you feel at home. If the weather is not ideal you can also chose to sit at one of the two buildings on each side of the courtyard in which the space is broken into small and cozy areas.The menu changes seasonally offering heartier dishes like the delicious New York strip steak while in the summer there are more seafood options. Originally conceived as a coffee shop by restaurateur couple Wayne and Valerie Elam Brew Babies has evolved and grown becoming not only one of the best restaurants in Cape Coral but also a leading jazz venue in Southwest Florida.

I first discovered this Cape Coral gem only a few months ago. While there for a business lunch, I decided then that I would love to celebrate my anniversary with my husband the following month. We arrived early and were seated in the bar/ lounge area. The intimate atmosphere & attentive wait staff did not disappoint. Patrick was our server... More

Fresh from Italy, Antonio & Claudia have only been in the Cape for about a month. It doesn't sound like the menu is in for a huge overhaul but... More

My husband and I have eaten here twice. The first time was when we were living in the hotel across the street until our house was ready for us to move into. We sat in the garden area which is beautiful and whimsical. Gazing around you will discover hidden treasures everywhere. That first evening we were not exceptionally hungry due... More

I was at Brew Babies for lunch on Aug 20th, 2014. As always, the food and service were outstanding. The news is that a new owner, from Rome Italy, is taken over the restaurant. The GOOD NEWS is that the new owner will be retaining all the Chefs, staff, entertainment and excellence that Brew Babies has been known for. The... More
