Eat breakfast here twice, dinner once. Dinner had European flavours, breakfast American. Loved every bite. Much tastier than the average cafe, very reasonable.

We went there at first to buy a take away coffee. A "real" coffee with taste. We ended one evening with 2 other families for dinner. The food was excellent, perfect meat, wonderfull tuna. The location is quite nice on Collins ave, not to much car traffic, just enough to make it "entertaining".

One block away from the gorgeous SoBe beach, FL Café is the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch &dinner. Best place for eggs Benedicte & breakfast all day. Corner terrace for people watching, amazing service and French food at its best!! As a concierge in town I know my little hidden gems, this is one of them. So, if you are... More

Classic French bistro. Delicious, cozy and charming. We went for breakfast three days in a row and were pleased each day.

Having walked along Ocean Blvd and being approached at every pavement dining area, we thought that back a street on Collins would be better. Cafe des Arts looks OK on the corner of 14th and Collins, but it stops there. We sat inside - first noticing an unusual smell - possible cigars. The place isn't the cleanest and the insistence...

Don't waste your time and money! This is the worst place in South Beach. Food is average, but super over priced! 5$ for 12oz of orange juce, not even fresh squeezed. Interior of that place is in terrible condition, dirty walls, broken chairs, smelly trash all around.I was afraid to touch anything. That was the first place we picked up... More

I am not a picky eater or a "foodie," and I enjoy dives as much as the next man. But every phase and aspect of this meal was absolutely atrocious. What looked like a quaint cafe on a prime location on Collins Avenue couldn't possibly be a total culinary failure, right? We were the only people in the restaurant on... More

We wanted to like this place. The exterior of this restaurant looked quaint and inviting, and the interior was a little cluttered. The real issue, though, was the strange musty odor that permeated the small dining room. We assumed that it would fade, but it didn't. Normally, we would have walked out, but we stayed. ??? Ordered margaritas, and they... More

Went to this restaurant for breakfast and sat inside to take a break from the heat. While I was eating, my girlfriend noticed something crawling on the wall. It was a roach. Then we started noticing a couple more on the wall. We soon left. Even though all we had to pay for was a drink, this is not appealing... More
