Great lunch spot

It's a great spot for lunch, the food is good but not spectacular. It's old school style of functioning makes it a must visit.

Fantastic situation in Ocean Drive. Good food, nice music. This place has been mythic since his creation. And good news, it never closes! Don't forget to visit the store for a souvenir where you ll meet Jeff, a very nice guy!

When I came to Miami, I came to News Café for a lunch or dinner. Lovely location, right on Ocean Drive with outdoor seating: News Café is the right place for people watching. You can stop here for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a late night snack! good food and good service at a reasonable price (for Ocean drive). Highly recommended... More

We came here because not only is it highly recommended and trip adviser but because I just finished reading a novel that takes place in South Beach in this café was often referenced. I ordered the Middle Eastern platter which featured enough delicious lunch for 2 or a great appetizer for a larger party. The sampling featured stuffed grape leaves,... More

We popped in here one morning just for a coffee. While we were there we looked at the menu and liked what we saw, so came back a few nights later to eat. We were not disappointed. The food was lovely and quite reasonable. They also serve Pimms! The staff were all helpful and pleasant too.
