Great little corner cafe

This is what Coral Gables is about. A place which is traditional, great tasting and makes you feel welcome without the glitter to outshine its shortcomings. Breakfast is fresh and great tasting. The coffee is also great. This is not a fast food mass volume Starbucks, this is a place where you... read more

The handsome façade is an old-Spanish motif, with lots of curb appeal. They have done a very fine job with the décor with lots of marble, and attractive woodwork. The setting is small, intimate, and inviting. Their menu is interesting, and worked well for our breakfast. They have a particularly strong coffee, and lots of options to suite most tastes.... More

I've walked by Cafe Demetrio a dozen times before meeting a some friends there for lunch. Can't believe what I've missed! Cozy atmosphere in a historic building is relaxing and the service is friendly and efficient. You place your order at the front and it is delivered to your table when it's ready. The caprese sandwich was outstanding- crusty on... More

We were staying at the Westin Colonade because my daughter's wedding was the night before. A bunch of us walked to Cafe Demetrio for breakfast. The ham and cheese croissants are fabulous. They have great coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice.

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 transported! And the ham... 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
