Time of year
It's a beautiful area and given it was February the 80 degree temps were a welcome surprise. This was a great spot to spend the day.
Coconut Grove used to be the best of Miami, now it seems to be just another Miami Parking Authority towing business
We drove around the town for a bit. We were looking forward to visiting Coconut Walk, but the place was closed for renovations. Driving around we got a good vibe from the place with some shops and restaurants that seemed to be a nice place to stop for a bite and coffee.
Would come here more often except the parking situation is atrocious. I have no problem coming early in the morning for breakfast at Greenstreet Cafe but almost always hope “this time will be different” when attempting to come to Bombay Darbar for lunch, drive around for 5-10…
It has been a while since I used to frequent Coconut Grove. A lot of development taking place. It still retains a bit of its unique character. The park near the marina is shrinking but still retains that aspect of calm.
