“Delicious food and great for people watching!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a place we return to whenever we come to Miami! Van Dykes is situated along Lincoln Boulevard which is perfect for shopping or just strolling along sightseeing. Take a seat outside and enjoy watching Miami at its best....there's plenty to see that's for sure! The food is delicious and the choice is plentiful. Staff very friendly and happy to make recommendations from the menu.

“Something on the menu for everyone!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

They offer a huge selection including breakfast all day. The middle east platter was delicious and had enough for two to share. The breakfast special was a large portion as well, served with fresh squeezed oj or fresh apple juice. My unexpected favorite was the kids Mac n cheese (tasted from my son's dish). The best I've ever had! Their mojitos are delicious. The jazz/blues band was in the process of setting up and were very nice to let our boys ask them questions.

“Outstanding music, cocktails, and chocolate soufflé”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

We went to the Upstairs at the Van Dyke Cafe the night Sammy Figueroa's band performed. What an outstanding evening! The music couldn't have been better! The band truly deserves its Grammy nominations! Since we already had dinner somewhere else, we opted just for cocktails and desert. The cocktails were excellent and the desert, a large chocolate soufflé for two, was absolutely delicious!
Now, the place is not ideal as a venue for music since it was not built for this purpose. The band is crammed in a corner, partly obscured by a large column. Still, the sound is unimpeded since the place is relatively small. The room itself is not oozing elegance either, but the music, the cocktails, and the soufflé more than make up for the shortcomings. Try it. It's worth it!
