Fresh food & lots of options

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!

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.

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!!!!!!

Ice Box relocated off Lincoln Road Mall off to Purdy Ave and has lots of space to sit and relax for cake and coffee. My friend and I had the 5 cake sampler and coffee. The sampler gives you 5 of your choices off the menu and it is absolutely delicious. Love Ice Box Cafe !!!

I used to love Ice Box when it was just off Lincoln Road. It was unpretentious and had an interesting menu. Since their move to the tonier Sunset Harbour neighborhood, they seem to be a little overextended. The menus are on big heavy boards, which is just stupid. You can't put them down on the table, and the poor waiters... More

Great place in South Beach for Sunday brunch, but pricey. I used to get take-out food from their original location close to Lincoln Road. Food still good and interesting, but the prices ... a bit high for eggs and juice.
