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.

Just eaten here and the food has let down what would be a great restaurant. First issue....there is literally no kids menu...so if you have kids younger than 10 or 11... Don't bother. My daughter had a portion of spaghetti with butter on for her meal...tasted a bit odd (how can you get this wrong) and they charged nine bucks... More

We at Brew Babies never like any of our customers to leave unsatisfied and will always address it right away. After speaking with your server and reading your review we heard you were unhappy with the seasoning on the Pork Ribeye so she immediately offered to make you a new one without the seasoning. You chose not to have a... More

One of the best places to eat in cape coral. Ambiance, location, and staff are all great. If you go sit in the courtyard and try any seafood dish. If your in the Cape you have to check it out along with Misto and Little Sicily Trattoria.

The outside seating is great and has that European flair. The staff is friendly and efficient and although the menu isn't very extensive and it can be kind of pricey, the food is good.

It was our anniversary and we like to celebrate with a good dinner. We had heard the Brew Babies had good food but we were pleasantly surprised just how good it was. The Old style setting reminded my wife and I of a little restaurant we visited in Paris a few years ago. The courtyard entry with the fountain and... More

This is my second visit to Brewbabies. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this restaurant. Great ambience, we sat in the court yard, which is beautiful. Service was efficient, yet one does not feel rushed. The seafood is absolutely delicious. I had the lobster scampi with pasta at my most recent visit. The pieces of lobster where... More

One of my favorite places to dine in Cape Coral. I first went because of the lovely garden courtyard - a great place for lunch with the tinkling fountains and water features. I keep going back for the excellent menu - can always count on it being first class when we are entertaining family and friends. My top tip is... More

Fantastic restaurant . I would eat there everyday if I could. I had the cioppino and it was great. All fresh great flavor. My wife had the pork osso buco which is a 12 out of a scale of 1 to 10!! Slow and relaxed service as it should be. The best food by far in the Cape.

Bre Babies was recommended by a friend. My wife and I had snapper dishes that were superb. Far exceeded our expectations. The atmosphere was great. If possible, sit in the couryard and listen to the great band. Go to speak to the owner, his wife (who plsys the keyboard and has a great voice) and a petron (who is a... More
