We stayed at the Pelican hotel and ended up eating several meals at the Pelican Cafe. They have a lot of great choices for lunch and dinner along with good drinks. Sidewalk cafe in the center of Ocean Drive means you get to do a lot of people watching while handing out there. Staff was friendly and always recognized us... More

I've been at the Pelican Cafe a few times in May and then July but my experience wasn't that good. Each time I faced rude attitude from the manager and the service was slow. Once we even saw that blonde manager woman yelling at the hostess. Totally unprofessional. But anyway, we just arrived to Mia yesterday and one of my... More

We stopped here for a quick drink and bite to eat. We shared a pizza which was really good! The drinks were good, too.This cafe was right across from the beach (as all of the restaurants and bars are). I was a bit taken back at how pushy the restaurant workers are in Miami. As you walk down the sidewalk... More

Ok food! Not great! Had to send food and bill back. The waiter did his best, but it couldn't help us leave with a sour taste (!) in our mouths .. Pelican is far from it's glory days ....

We stopped here for a snack and a drink as we were wandering up and down the strip. The place was nice, casual. The food we got was all good. I just didn't get anything from the place that made it stand out for me. I mean if I was stumbling by I would stop in again, but I don't... More
