I stopped in during a busy lunch day and ordered the daily special of marinade hanger steak. My waiter Oscar was very busy but provided attentive service, and knew the menu well. The steak was very tasty and came with a smooth velvety sauce. I closed the meal with a Crepe Suzette that was reminiscent of my days in France.... More

I would rate this "good" if Tripadvisor allowed that. Nothing special, but we had a decent breakfast here with good food and coffee.

My husband and I came here to eat before going on our hop on, hop off bus tour. It's a cute intimate café that serves French breakfast. I ordered the Monsieur...it was ok, and my husband ordered the smoked salmon on bread and that was delish! I would totally go back for the freshly baked croissant and jelly!! Our server... More

Its a small place but wonderful food. I had an omelet that was cooked very well. The baguettes were warm and soft and for downtown Miami the price was great. Our server was nice and attentive. We chose to sit inside because it was already warm out and we don't like eating on the curb. However, those tables stayed full... More

We tried this place on our last day in Miami, and were blown away. They have several different versions of eggs benedict, many of which I had never seen before. We tried the Parisian with turkey and Brie, and it was delicious. We also had an omelet with smoked salmon and truffle oil that was pretty magnificent. the re are... More

They re-fried our benedicts... :0 How does one react to this? We laughed it off but neither my girlfriend myself nor could believe what just happened... Our French waiter (might be the owner) served us two orders of benedicts, and mine were decent. My girlfriend, on the other hand, likes her eggs well cooked. Place was not packed at all,... More

When we walked up to this cafe', a few minutes before they opened, but when they saw us interested in eating there they seated us! Nice. Our waiter was so attentive but not to the degree he bothered us. We shared here and that was fine with them, no extra charge. The food was very good and we got to... More
