Fantastic food with a great variety. Covered deck is great on rainy days. Nice location for people watching and the wait staff is among the friendliest in town.

We were steered to this restaurant by the good reviews and found the staff to be friendly, competent, and efficient. I enjoyed the breakfast burrito but my wife found the eggs Benedict to be bland. Watch out the tip is already included in the bill and they add a 'resort tax' for each diner (grrrrr!).

Went for breakfast today. Nice ambiance. Menu had a lot of variety. I opted for the corned beef and hash, while hubby had the eggs benedict. Food was really good. Only complaint was the coffee, which was super weak. More like coffee - flavored water.

I bought a groupon for this restaurant on my trip to Miami because the reviews looked really good. I tried 3 different entrees and was not pleased. The food was mediocre - quite bland, and nothing great. I was disappointed.

We had a wonderful and delicious breakfast on our 1st day in Miami. Our server, Erik, was efficient and attentive. The food was terrific also. He gave us a recommendation on where to eat for dinner also that we appreciated and loved.

I got the Green Scramble, which were the best scrambled eggs I have ever had. Our waiter, Mike was great. Gave suggestions and was really friendly. He made sure we enjoyed our dining experience. Will definitely come back!
