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.

Lovely garden, wonderful food and great people. It's hard to get in for dinner especially during season. We go for lunch it's perfect.

Live music some evenings, this is a great place for date night. Great food with a varied menu, there are a variety of seating options from intimate to "not-so-much" I've been several times, once or twice to just have a drink. Never disappointed!

I have only eaten at Brew Babies twice and found it to be pretty good both times. The only problem I have is the seating is not very comfortable as I am only 5' and had to sit on a cushion because the chair was so uncomfortable and sunken in. The other problem I had was when I order a... More

Met a group of Ladies for Lunch today. They meet once every month. I was glad that they had chosen Brew Babies. I have not been here since they first opened. Rosie was our server and did a delightful job. Looking at the Menu, there were more choices than I ever needed. I thought the prices were a little high... More

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

I live in Fort Myers and have wanted to eat at Brewbabies for quite some time. Finally went for lunch with a friend. We both enjoyed our meals and our server Lisa was excellent. She was pleasant, attentive, and accommodating. The food was yummy, can't wait to come back with my hubby. Not sure why more restaurants can't have such... More

Since I first reviewed it back in Nov. 2011, we have been enjoying Brew Babies on a regular basis. We just stopped in last week and found out about new owners. 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
