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 love this restaurant. Hidden gem

I had no idea this restaurant existed until my parents took me out there once for my birthday several years ago. Since then, it has been my favorite restaurant and hard to top for a number of reason. Let me start by saying that it is higher priced for dinner. The lunch menu is very reasonably... read more

After hearing how great this place was we had to try it for lunch. In our opinion there is nothing really special about this way overpriced Bistro. The servers seemed confused if not disorganized, the food was average but the prices were very expensive for a casual lunch. My review? "Been there done that". With so many great restaurants and...

A friend suggested we go here for lunch. It was trendy, quaint, and very tasty. It was quite some time ago so I hope it has not changed. I would like to go back. They have a nice cozy bar area inside, also. Try it!

The food was fresh, fancy and fabulous. The tuna and salmon were cooked to perfection. We highly recommend Brew Babies. It was our server Kathy's first night. She was excellent too. All of the staff were friendly and helpful.

We have visited Brew Babies for years, but have not visited since the sale of the restaurant last fall. The reviews had not been good, so we just hadn't gone....until last week! We went along with friends and were shocked. The wait staff was unfriendly to the point of rudeness. The food was very average with the exception of the... More

We haven't been in since the new owners took over. Came in for lunch and it was great. BUT the tiramisu for dessert was as authentic as sitting in Rome. And come to find out the new owners are from Italy. Booked a room for dinner for my husband's birthday. Can't wait.

Our first introduction to Brew Babies was for friends anniversary party held in the evening. What a magical place this is, the ambiance, the amazing food and awesome staff made this my favorite hideaway restaurant. The moment you step into the courtyard you are whisked into a twinkling array of lights and little bistro tables. As you enter into the... More

Always loved this restaurant -- good food, great patio, wonderful ambience, friendly owners. Was very sorry to hear there were new owners. But someone said try it, so we did. Still good food. Great patio. Wonderful ambience. Never met the owners. 3 of 4 is still pretty good.

Brew Babies is our favorite restaurant and has never disappointed us in any way. The food has always be of the highest quality and the wait staff always attentive. It was sold recently, and we have not been there since, but I'm sure nothing has changed.
