Great Brunch!

We had a wonderful meal and our waiter Erik was AWESOME! We went on 07/12/15 and will definitely go back! 😊 The fresh fruit juices are delicious too and so was our meal! Great ambiance and got seated pretty quick!

Tried the breakfast pizza which was superb and I would highly recommend. Breakfast Burrito Grande was also very good. Seems a popular place for breakfast so be prepared for a little wait. Staff were obviously under pressure but still provided a good level of service.

Be prepared for queues, but it's worth the wait! The best all American breakfast on South Beach - with Cuban flavors if you want added spice. Service is slick and staff are very friendly and helpful. Pancakes are excellent with generous sides of fruit. Breakfast sausage is very tasty. Wifi does not work too well on the terrace, so if... More

So far in my second attempt to dine at the hotel restaurant I am again disappointed. Day 1 my party was told a 20-30 minute. Upon returning 15 mins later we were told that our table was given away because we were called and no one responded. Day 2 I return by myself, simple enough, and my sister informs me... More

Went for breakfast based on reviews. It was very good. French Toast was my favorite. also had some of the Eggs Benedict which was average. The outside seating was nice, it was raised up so you didn't have people walking on on the sidewalk through your meal like a lot of the outside dining on Ocean Drive.

Come here on numerous occasions mostly for brunch. Love sitting out watching people pass by. French toast is BOMB! Chicken sandwich, fries, and sangria yummy. I always go and try something different and such great portions decently priced and yummy for "hotel" food. Definitely coming back again....
