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 finally had the opportunity to try Brew Babies with some friends that have raved about this restaurant for a few years. The restaurant is split into two sections separated by a courtyard which is unusual. Upon review of the menu I noted that several of the items listed on their website were not on the menu in the restaurant... More

This is a very quaint little place, indoor and outdoor dining. Very eclectic. Food is wonderful. Great salads and sandwiches.

At one time, we loved this restaurant and it still has a lovely outdoor garden, but when your server is wearing short shorts with sneakers and drops off your food like she's working an outdoor beach bar, it left us less than impressed. Food is ok, not what it once was. Not going back.

Unfortunately the ambiance can not make up for the so so food, and poor service. Overpriced, not worth the money.

This is a tiny little secret in Cape Coral. The food is great, the outdoor patio is so charming. I am from Florida so I wait until the weather is good, but I would eat here all winter and spring!

This restaurant is excellent. The eclectic garden is so interesting. The service is superb but the food...just wow. This is easily one of the best restaurants in Cape Coral.

Service was very good and experience was unique in that layout is different from most places you will visit. Quality of the food was an 8 to 9 on a scale of 10. Creativity and quality is both outstanding in the food served. Not your usual comfort food. An opportunity to experience the unusual and have fun at the same... More

We took another couple to Brew Babies and almost as soon as we arrived, realized it was a mistake. The service even to greet us, get drinks was terrible. The server spent time in the corner of the restaurant with two of her 'friends' and forgot to wait on the customers. I contacted Brew Babies after ward and the management... More

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.
