Unfortunately, it is no loner in business.. and so any review would be pointless. Apparently, I started a review and didnt finish before it vanished into the ether of the jazz world. Godspeed, Van Dyke Cafe.. seee you on the other side.

As a Miamian, this place was the best place in town in a great location to listen to great music in a great atmosphere. I cannot understand why they allowed this place to close down. Shocking, really.

I am really missing this place. The live music was great, the location, the food, the people and the service. It is too bad it has to close. I hope they re-open soon.

Enjoyed our evening in this small friendly music club. Excellent bands and very reasonable $5.00 cover charge for table seating and drinks prices . We did not eat but saw that the food looked good also. Highly recommended.

I did't ate here, just came for the music. I heard there's some great blues and jazz band here every evening and thought to check it out. It was amazing, besides paying $5 each person to sit down at a table. But after a night...More

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...More
