One of the true conundrums of the 21st century is how restaurants that offer such crummy service still manage to remain open. This is a South American (Venezuelan) run cafe and pastry shop that masquerades as a European coffee house. The bistro fare is subpar with a hefty price tag, and the service is non-existent. People in the 'hood wonder... More

This is a cute little place as long as you can sit outside, away from the creaky sloping floors and the musty smell indoors. The staff are inexperienced,even for a little coffee house. Their customer service and manners need some serious improvement. Their food is just OK for being prepackaged and refrigerated. Their only saving grace is the patio and... More

There was a dazzling array of food here -- wraps, sandwiches, salads, omelettes, and desserts. But I strutted in for cappuccino, having just dined elsewhere, in the Grove. I placed my order at the register counter and was handled a numbered placard, which I placed on my selected table. In two minutes I was sipping my luscious coffee amidst attractive... More

If you're in the Coral Gables area and you're looking for something other than Starbucks, you got to give Cafe Demetrio a try. A charming little cafe for someone who has made it out of their teens and who is looking to get away from the "corporate" feel of a chain coffee house . We went on a Saturday (late... More

I love this spot for an afternoon break for coffee and a cigar in the quiet courtyard that has shaded areas and comfortable tables to enjoy with friends. Particularly on a beautiful spring day, the patio provides a nice place to relax. The inside tables are also comfortable and cozy for codified and conversation. Friday nights are live music nights...

I came here for a business breakfast and had coffee and an egg dish. It was a cute place with a courtyard but very crowded. It was fairly inexpensive with a coffee house type menu. I asked for my dish with no meat but it arrived with meat (which I don't eat) so I had to send it back. They... More

This is a Venezuelan establishment posing as an European coffee house. The food and coffee are OK, but the service is just atrocious. There are several other bona fide options for bistro food and great coffee; try Chocolate Fashion or Graziano's; both nearby.

This little gem doesn't look like much but has delicious coffees complete with a heart carved into the foam. The six different breakfast specials include eggs, croissants, and your choice of a mocha, latte or cappuccino. In the evening there's tapas and wine and the atmosphere is very comfortable. It doesn't matter if you run the Chamber of Commerce, you... More
