“Start the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Nice place to sit down and see people passing by. Bit pricey, but it can be forgiven because it's location. Slowish service, but place was crowded too.

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Had lunch here with my mother and sister and we all shared the hearts of palm salad, cuban sandwich and tuna tartar. Everything was delicious and much better than we expected. It could be that we were so hungry from shopping for hours at the winter sale at Saks, but I really think it was genuine good food. My sister bumped into some friends that she didn't even knew they were going to be in Florida at the same time we were.
Perfect place to drop after shopping.

“Good people watching, nice menu, less then average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Went yesterday for lunch and service was fine, took a long time to get a coca cola but other then that it was good. Lots of choice on the menu but sadly food didnt live up to expectations. Would try it again for breakfast perhaps.
