This Miami Beach restaurant is consistently good. It's nice looking inside but not flashy. Great choices for breakfasts and lunches. If you're in the neighborhood it's a good place to go.

This is not the first time we eat at Ice Box. In fact, every time we come to Miami we pay them a visit. But I must say that for the very first time both my wife and I were disappointed. I had a wasabi crusted salmon, she had a curry chiken. Both of them lacked personality, were absolutely dull.... More

I had the gadoo-gado salad for lunch & what a great choice. I eat the JJ Virgin Sugar Impact way & this was perfect. Eggplant,tomatoes, cukes, egg, kale, sprouts & brown rice. So delish!!

They do not have a bad dish. Everything from the desserts, sandwiches and main courses. This is a high end fancy dee-lish place on South Beach and this one is a hidden Jewel in the D terminal at MIA.

Lincoln Road Mall is the big attraction in South Beach and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. BUT if you're willing to walk a few blocks from that well-beaten path, you will be amply rewarded. The Ice Box has creatively prepared entrees that delight your senses.(I'm getting hungry just thinking about it) And if you like dessert, their... More

I have several favorite desserts, but cake is certainly near the top of the list. And on my many visits to Ice Box, I've never been disappointed. Tonight we had two: coconut buttercream and dulce de leche. They were so good I kind of wish the portions had been bigger, but then I would have regretted that even more.

Nice selection of fresh sandwiches, pastries, juices. The food is varied (from cold cuts to curried chicken salad) and the service is efficient. Would do again!

Hi: I have a vacation condo on South Beach and every chance that I get to leave Boston and head to South Beach, I visit the Ice Box Cafe as much as possible. The staff is superb, the food is fresh and delicious and priced very reasonable. Gustavo is my favorite waiter!!!!!!
