“Delicious food-lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

While staying at the nearby Courtyard by Marriott the hotel recommended this cafe for breakfast. WOW! Delicious!!! I had a pecan waffle which was LOADED with pecans & yummy! The side of bacon was very generous and the service was great. We returned on our last day for lunch - food still great but the service was a bit off. The setting for outdoor seating is a lovely garden - such a treat for visitors from the north! There is a parking garage adjacent to the restaurant. If you take the elevator up one level you actually exit into a large dining area (not in use when we were there) which appears to be for special functions. Since parking is a HUGE issue in the region the convenience of this lot is a bonus.

“LOVELY OUTDOOR DINING WITH GOOD FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

The Peacock Garden Cafe has a lot of things going for it: great location, pleasant atmosphere and good food. Only a half block from the busy and touristy Coco-Walk in Coconut Grove, the Peacock Cafe seems like a quite and secluded oasis. The garden tables are surrounded by tropical plants and flowers. In the unlikely case of bad weather, there is also an indoor area with huge windows.

I haven't been there for dinner yet, but lunch has always been excellent. Salads are fresh and tasty, and the sandwiches are all delicious. You never have to ask to water because there is a full bottle at your table even before you sit down.

Two minor glitches... first-- the place has become very popular with both locals and visitors, so at lunch time you have to go either early or late to get an outdoor table. Second-- service can be a bit slow, but the wait staff is so nice you tend to forgive the wait. Besides, why would you want to rush out of such of lovely, relaxing place?

“Could have been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The setting is beautiful and very cozy! It feels like you're in the Keys. The food was good.. I had the ham & cheese omelet with homestyle potatoes. Everyone at the table enjoyed the waffles and pancakes. The mimosas were on point! :)

“so pretty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Had Sunday brunch here, loved the location and ambience. Food was pretty good, waiter excellent. It was extremely busy, but food arrived in record time. Try the Bloody Marys.
