Visited Here many years ago when I stayed for a Night in Miami! I enjoyed my overall experience being here in the middle of Miami was quite an experience. We only stayed here for a quick drink and a nice rest. We sat outside by the live webcam and enjoyed waving at it and telling our family and friends to... More

As a South Beach resident, I am a bit jaded about the restaurants that line Ocean Drive. As I explained to a recent visitor, "It's a bit like the Greek Islands: You are swarmed by barely-dressed hostesses shoving you menus which all serve essentially the same thing but at varying prices." The News Cafe is slightly different. Firstly, it's a... More

Great local breakfast joint, love coming here every so often to get a good meal in. The food selection is simple but very tasty. The meal sizes aren't huge but they seem to be just right.

What a wonderful place to eat. It was so close to the beach ( literally across the street) and the weather was amazing, it was great eating outside. Excellent service, not much wait, our server was on top of our orders, enjoyed eating outside. I had the pesto penne pasta, cooked to perfection.

A friend recommended that I try the News Cafe. It was walking distance from my hotel. I loved the outside atmosphere and the food was good as well.

A real news stand (with history) with expanded cafe that serves surprisingly amazingly good food. If your a morning person this is a best bet.

It all gets a bit crazy on ocean drive with pumping dance beats and giant cocktails so this was refreshing. Had the seasonal ale in a souvenir glass with a burger. Just the ticket.

Love this place! I read the reviews and decided to drop by for their mediterranean salad with grilled Chicken on top - stupendous! I cam back the next 2 night as well with my wife. Reasonable price for excellent food. As a bonus, you get to watch the circus of people go by - quite entertaining. I'll be back (got... More

No pressure by staff to get you in like the many on the beach strip! Food was well above standard and reasonably priced! Great variety of choices, free refills and waitress was very pleasant! Highly recommended!
