The best desserts ever!!! Very fun staff, great food but sooooo much temptation it is not even funny! I would totally recommend this place, especially with good friends, it's the perfect backdrop for a good friendly laugh and catchup meal.

When I heard that this was Oprah's favourite brunch place I was determined to come here despite it taking 20 minutes for me to find the exact location. The staff were very prompt and efficient and the food was decent but not great. After realising that Oprah is only human I just sucked up the whole outing to experience. The... More

Delicious food, amazing desserts, friendly staff and packed with locals. It is my favorite place in Miami Beach for casual breakfast, lunch or dinner. Oprah said "The Best Cake in Town". Boom! Sold ;)

So far this is still my favorite. Then on the next day I stopped in and took two pieces,the Pistachio Almond... More

My husband LOVES decadent, rich chocolate cake. Therefore, when I discovered a review of the Ice Box cafe on the Food Network website, I knew that we had to go there while on our Miami Beach vacation. Well, even though the Ice Box Cafe was located 12 blocks from our hotel, we walked there two nights in a row so... More

Ice Box is the best restaurant I ate at during my week spent in Miami South Beach. It was so good I returned 4 times. Everything is delicious, especially the curry chicken. For dessert, try the melt in your mouth chocolate truffles. The atmosphere is great, the servers genuinely interested in your enjoyment of the food. Really stands out from... More

We had the Ice box burgers for lunch, which were good! But the desserts were even better! Service ok too. Remember that service charge is included here though at most places in Miami Beach!

Excellent choices (recommend highly either The Bomb or the Pumpkin Butterscotch) with fast and friendly service. You can even get the slices to go right up at the glass case. Just off Lincoln Road and well worth the trip. Excellent Saturday brunch, as well. Vegetarian and Vegan-friendly. Enjoy!

I just had a great lunch on my own in the Ice Box. I had read about it in advance and purposely went there for lunch when I found myself on my own in South Beach. Had the soba noodle salad and really loved it. Well made and with a nice bit of heat to it. I saved room for... More
