“Coffee Like Gold, Service Like Molasses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

They still get 4 stars because the espresso is one of the best I've had outside of Italy, but boy do they need to speed it up a bit. Went in there once and was ignored while workers went about doing other things. I guess making money isn't as important as arranging croissants on a rack. Screw 'em , I walked out. Went back the next day and waited for oh about three minutes (yes, I timed it) while the woman at the cash register finished her conversation with a customer about various inconsequentialities. I waited this time as I was now suffering from caffeine withdrawal and was finally rewarded with a great espresso.

I always come here when I'm in South Beach, because the coffee is great . I'm happy to roll the dice on the service. Heck, Starbucks service is awful too and their espresso is like a cup of liquid charcoal so why not go somewhere where you know the coffee is good

“Great coffee and breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This is a great, no-nonsense place to grab coffee at any time of day but is especially popular with locals and tourists for breakfast.
