Our favorite courtyard!

We've lived in 7 U.S. cities in the last 10 years and this is the restaurant I miss the most after all of that travel!!! Coral Gables is a wonderful place to live and Cafe Demetrio is a gem within that lovely spot! Even on the hottest, mugginess days, you disappear into the courtyard here and... read more

I have been coming to Demetrio for years and it is still the best coffee around. Demetrio coffee latte is still awesome. Now they serve wine, sandwiches, and ice cream.

On a recent business trip to Coral Gables I had a chance to have breakfast at Cafe Demetrio. What a pleasant surprise. I really enjoyed the small cafe atmosphere and the breakfast omelet was good along with a coffee for $6.50. A great price!

We've stopped for both breakfast and lunch. Ham and cheese croissants are delicious, as is the toasted French bread. The latte had a design floating in the foam done in chocolate and was excellent. The regular coffee was average. For lunch, the tuna sandwich was very generous though it really needed the extra mayo that came on the side. The... More

The place is in a corner and offers coffee and some food like sandwiches, light salads, and desserts (mostly from Costco). Since I saw that the desserts were from Costco, I passed on the food and tried the coffee. You order at the register and then sit yourself where you can find room. We went there twice on our brief...

Good place for breakfast in a busy location. Service was friendly, prompt and the food was well-prepared. Great espresso coffee, in keeping with the area's cultural demands. Looks like business people from the nearby office buildings like it too.

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

Charming coffee & bake goods with a twist, you'll feel like your in a small European cafe, the out doors is very pretty.
