Great Location & Awesome Food

We went here for Breakfast. Our Server was very sweet and kind. He really helped us out on deciding what to eat. Food was good, location was amazing.

This is one of my go to spots in Miami beach. We weren't sure if we should grab a table or find someone to seat us. We only saw wait people who have mastered the art of averting their eyes. Finally I asked one waitress if we should sit anywhere and she said "I guess so". 15 or so minutes... More

Popular with locals but also a top tip for tourists, this is a good place for outdoor dining by the beach although it's really nice inside too. Staff are friendly but very busy and there are plenty of menu options. Food was average, prices are fairly low compared to other options on Ocean Drive.

1/2 block from our hotel. Great food and good service.. Our server Catalina went above and beyond to make sure we was good.. The breakfast special was a good deal.

My husband, our 9 year-old daughter and I had lunch at News Cafe. The location was nice. The interior design was appealing. However, my burger was quite burnt. Plus, we did not enjoy drinking water from plastic glasses.

The food was decent for our group. Went for a brunch and got mimosas. Service was at a decent pace. They did not have any waffles. There is no waffle maker so they get them from someplace. We were not sure. The french toast was lacking flavor and the pancakes which was not recommended by the wait staff tasted better.

Whenever we're in Miami we go here on a daily basis for breakfast. The food is delicious, the staff is nice, fast service and best of all everything can be customized no matter how you want your breakfast. The view is great as well and as open 24hrs you can go there at any time! :) Just great!

We sipped coffee up and down Ocean Drive... News Cafe offers the best coffee in the area (I have been in the Coffee business for 38 years in Montreal Canada!) Service can be a little slow but sitting back and taking in the sights right there on Ocean Drive is pure entertainment! Little News Cafe store offers cute nostalgic items.... More

The News Cafe is always a safe bet for breakfast, or lunch. People watching, food/drinks with good price performance directly on Ocean Drive. I will back again and again.
