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.

Great food and music!

Brew Babies has an outstanding menu, the food is great and the music is wonderful, a little spendy but well worth it!

There were 10 of us for dinner in a private room at this lovely, casual restaurant in Cape Coral, Florida. The service was good, given the size of our group. I ate the Pork Osso Bucco which was really a large, very tasty pork shank. Others had Oysters, Mussels, or Pasta and everyone enjoyed their meal and the ambience. Prices... More

This review may seem too unbelievable but truly, this was our dinner experience for 4 last Saturday night---It started off with a gentleman host who was by far one of the rudest host we've ever dealt with. Sat at our table & the waitress immediately informed us she usually only works the lunch shift so any questions about the menu... More

Actually, my husband and I just got home from dinner at this beautiful Cape Coral, Florida restaurant. Having both recently retired and moved to this paradise of a city from New York, we went to this restaurant to celebrate our first anniversary in our new hometown. We made reservations for their terrace, specifically requesting a table near one of those... More

Had a fab dinner at Brew Babies on New Year's Eve - ate outside with friends/had wonderful wine and great Italian food - weather was also good/did not need heater! Service was good and had plenty of time to eat/converse as they only booked two settings that evening - smart!

Jerk bartender - jerk wine list - stinky Monday seafood and a lot of f bombs from the pass as I waited an eternity for joke food - this is my very first food review - take note as I have owned my own fine wine and food establishment for 20 years

They cooked our fish (that we caught) the way we wanted and it was fabulous! This is now our new favorite restaurant in Cape Coral - hands down!
