Classic Florida Diner

Bayview Cafe is right out of central casting. It's a popular, small diner in a nondescript strip mall. There are a few tables outdoors on nice days.

I have been going there for three years. Never had a bad experience with food or service. Hot food comes hot & cold items come cold. Waitresses are great. they bust their butts to please customers. I have been there with family & friends and never has anyone been disappointed. Anybody that says a restaurant down the street is better... More

Had lunch here. Wow it's great. This hole in the wall has an extensive menu. A solo quick order chef cooks it all and gets food out quick. Very down home. Will be back.

Food was great. Too bad the cheese is all American, but otherwise I enjoyed it. Very quick service, friendly staff. FYI "Bayview" references the road, not the view... lol

We have come twice in two days. Fabulous local short-order cook cafe reminiscent of what dotted every small town in America not too many years ago. Diverse menu, fast service and very tasty. When in Fort Lauderdale pop in for affordable breakfast or lunch in a friendly atmosphere.

OK, to duck in and have a quick burger or sandwich. Always smells smoky (so your clothes do too when you leave), and the place needs a little bit of updating. Personally I prefer the Easy Over Cafe down the street.

Went with family for breakfast based on us reviews. Good, fast, friendly service and great food. Highly recommend for large selection, no frills but quality American food style cafe breakfast.
