“SO FUN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Low key, but lively! Laid back vibe with great, live music. After dinner and walking around South Beach we happened upon Upstairs at The Van Dyke. We're not old, but we're too old for the nightclub scene and too young to sit and listen to jazz. This was just right! Caesar's Groove was playing and they were amazing. Great place, slightly less touristy than the Mango's scene.

“Nice Atmosphere but lacks in the food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Van Dykes Cafe is a nice place in a beautiful area of South Beach. The music is nice and the outside seating is very South Beach. The servers are prompt and do not bother you. The food lacks proper flavor and is very basic. This goes for the drinks as well; they are just thrown together. Nice place but lacks in the food and drink department.

“Great Breakfast at Van Dyke Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We enjoyed great food and had fun watching the lively scene on Lincoln Road in South Beach. The Egg Benedict and the Veggie Omelet were very good and our waitress was lovely.

“Great breakfast on Lincoln Mall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had a good breakfast with excellent service and the bonus of people watching South Beach residents out walking and usually accompanied by their dogs.

“Great lunch stop during stroll on Lincoln”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

Great outdoor dining. Very accommodating for special food requests. Fabulous service. Perfect location. Reception and service staff could not have been friendlier, attentive and helpful - always refreshing since it seems to be more the exception than the rule.
