Great little cafe'

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... read more

We went there for brunch Sunday morning. The food was very good. I had not ever had a french breakfast before. The Parisian Benedict was good. The ricotta pancakes were nice, not too sweet. And the French Bread delicious as well. The tables were small and the plates very large, so our table felt crowded with 3 of us at... More

While looking for a place to have breakfast in downtown Miami, we found this little cafe; the reason I decided to try it was because it had tables outside. We had to wait a few minutes for a table outside but it was worth it. The service was very good, staff is friendly although sometimes they stay inside too long... More

Stumbled upon this little gem whilst walking around Miami. Food was authentic, cooked by a french chef and delicious. The Moules Frites were amazing. The broth was delicious and the salmon salad equally good. The lentil soup was also delicious. The dessert was tasty perhaps not to the standard of the mains but they are bought in not made on...

This restaurant was around the corner from the hotel we stayed. We loved the eggs with ham and potatoes. Eggs were just right!!! The croissants were pretty good and the servers were nice... We went back for more, tried the french toast and also the omelette with cheese and mushrooms and it was pretty good...If we go back to downtown... More

Service is ok since they get slammed by having all their customers at once. So, don't expect to much. Food is average. Not all french food is good

I had breakfast here two times while on a business trip to Miami. Despite difficulty finding this given numbering of cross streets downtown but really happy I finally found it. Eggs Benedict is the specialty of the house...it is wonderful with a croissant base. Had yummy croquet Madame the second time I visited. Would probably rate the eggs Benedict as... More

My wife and I had breakfast here on two mornings before we joined a Caribbean cruise. On both occasions, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was of excellent quality and the portions were just the right size. We would definitely return to Cafe Bastille if we are ever staying in downtown Miami again.
