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.

Tiramisu

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.

For our 32nd anniversary, I found the loveliest, most romantic restaurant of them all. My brother, who is in a wheelchair, and his wife joined us in our celebration. We dined indoors due to the heat, but either the patio or inside are quaint and charming. I loved every morsel of food and so did my companions. The carrot pasta... More

The past few times its been clear what is wrong with this place. Management. First greeted by a chalkboard, and then the owners BACK; whom was eating and drinking. Once we were sat the rest of the staff was friendly, but out of many items on the menu. After being dragged there again by friends we encountered the same problem... More

Visited with relatives one evening and found the place warm and inviting. The food and service was excellent. I have seen reviews on here that this is not as good as it used to be but for us it was well worth the visit. We will go back

I have visited Brew Babies many times over the last 5 years. It used to be quite a sophisticated relaxing bistro with a quality approach to dining and a lovely atmosphere. However over the last 2 years I have noticed a marked difference in both the quality of the food and their approach to customer. I know it changed hands... More
