We stumbled upon this place when driving by. We got to sit outside. The service was wonderful. The food was some of the best we have ever had. My son loved the Brazilian smoked sausage. My daughter's bananas foster French toast was like a dessert....The bacon was out of this world. The Chef even brought us our food. The server was knowledgeable and gave us great service. We will be back.More

A simple review on Tripadvisor is not enough to convey the utter joy and satisfaction we felt after eating at this establishment. This is the closest you can get to a European breakfast without actually flying across the Atlantic Ocean. Highly recommend the oranges in...olive oil and sea salt, as well as the espresso biscuits, for starters. The duck crepes were transcendental. The french toast was a national treasure. And the pastry assortment is better than you can get at any high quality bakery. Do yourself a favor and make your brunch plans at Mama Clemenza's.More

Good food with a specialty for those wanting a hearty brunch. It is open until 2:00 pm and we went there for lunch, but most items offered were breakfast items. I had the Italian quiche and it was creamy and yummy. It was served with...a croissant and I was disappointed that it wasn’t baked there since it is a European cafe, but more a pre-made one you buy from your food service purveyor. My husband had a very nice chicken sandwich. Good, but not great.More

Hi Scarolinalily, Thanks so much for taking time to stop in for lunch and for sharing your experience. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed the quiche! For our croissants, we actually source those from a cute little classic French bakery in Fort Walton...More

Do not miss out on this incredible gem. My husband and I left and agreed that we’d encourage our family members to vacation here JUST so they could get brunch at this restaurant. The service was wonderful, we got our food quickly (late morning), and...the servings were really large for the price. Worth every penny and beyond. I ordered the crepes trio and my husband ordered the Eggs Benedict. We were sad when we got full and couldn’t keep eating, ha! Can’t recommend enough.More

Tried this breakfast restaurant for the first time and was not disappointed. Went later in the morning and found an empty place. Husband, daughter, and I all ordered something different to try each others. Great service. The chef came out and spoke with us, asking...if all was good and answering any and all questions that we had. Was a little pricey, but will definitely go again.More

I want to drive back to Miramar right now just to go back here! We had breakfast here on our last morning and wish we had breakfast there every morning. Everything sounded incredible so it was hard to choose what to have! I went with...the lemon curd pancakes and was a little apprehensive cause I was afraid they would be too sweet but they were the perfect pancakes with a hint of lemon and not nearly overly sweet! Bacon was thick and perfectly cooked. Mimosas were mostly champagne with a hint of orange juice (just how I like them) and the cappuccino was perfectly made! Everyone was completely satisfied with their meal and we will definitely be regulars on our yearly Miramar visits from now on!More

Valid reasons it ranks so highly. Large portions. Large taste. Highly recommend. Their take on chicken and waffles featuring homemade cinnamon roll is the way to go

You can get brunch there any day. The brunch cost is dependent on what you order, some menu items are more expensive than others. But the menu items mentioned are very good. I think we paid about $25 for the two of us... More
