Great Place

This was a great place to eat with a lovely view - simple choices but reasonable and worth it. Try the seafood specialties when you can.

This seems a very popular restaurant. Although "only" having breakfast, it was pretty crowded. I concur with previous reviews that the food was extremely good and loved the very milky latte coffee! Good service and reasonably priced. Wished we were staying in Sobe longer to try dinner.

Stopped in for breakfast while staying at Miami Beach. Enjoyed the menu variety. The waitress, Elizabeth, was very attentive and nice. We enjoyed our food selections as well as the opportunity to "people watch"... of course that is just part of South Beach in Miami!!

Four of us went there for brunch on a Saturday midmorning. The line out front was about 15 people and though. I don't like waiting. When we saw some of the food go bye, we decided it was worth the wait and stayed. After 30 minutes, the hostess greeted with a smile and took us to our seats. We sat... More

We learnt about this place from trip advisor and glad we paid it a visit. Impressive and extensive menu to suit all taste buds for breakfast/brunch! Eggs of all styles and huge portions. You can go quite casual and there was a mix of couples of all ages plus families with kids. Outdoor and indoor seating - would recommend sitting... More

Excellent breakfast at the Porche Cafe - we were recommended to go by our taxi driver and we were not disappointed. The Cafe offers such a wide variety of food and smoothies as well as standard drinks list. It does an all day breakfast offering which was good for us as we rarely made it out before 11am. We sat...

we should have just stayed at this one place. we thought a 'quick' pub crawl would have been fun, but we had more fun at this place by far, compared to any other restaurant. Jamie our waiter was entertaining, but not too much in our face, and was super helpful when he was able to save my legs from mosquitos!

We enjoyed dinner here our first night in Miami. It was a nice, quiet, low key place after our long flights. Tho outdoor seating was lovely and service was impeccable. All four of us ordered something different and no one had a single complaint.

Staff and food here can be thoroughly commended, they work their socks off to keep customers happy. Only issue would be some of the tables are very close together and it was a bit gloomy under the canopy even on a day with brilliant sunshine but definitely well worth a visit.
