We frequent surf box for their delicious and healthy food plus coffee and shakes. It's really difficult to go wrong at this place in terms of what you order. This is a great spot to bring family, visitors or have a friend catch up breakfast,...brunch or lunch. We keep going back and yet to be disappointed - this place is easily 5+ stars.More

Easily the best restaurant in the area. Honestly everything on the menu is incredible, but I especially recommend the Parfait de coco chia bowl and the Medianoche sandwiches, both are insanely good. Also they have fresh Montreal bagels...hard to compete with that.

Surf Box is a small, quaint cafe on the main road into Flamingo. I would agree with others that it is over priced but that hasn't kept me from treating myself to my favorites every so often! I absolutely love the tropical shrimp tacos, smoothies...and lattes. Also one of the few places that serves good iced tea around town!More

We were there 5 days and went twice. This spot stands out as delicious and chill. Good service. Food is good for health conscious and indulgent options too. Amazing smoothies, chia fruit bowl, burritos, coffee. Cool green rice on the menu!

Smoothies are delicious and the Mediterranean platter is amazing! We went here almost every single day of our stay.

We went to Surf Box for lunch only but, as the heading says, we went quite a few times. Why ? Because it was delicious, friendly, appropriately priced and unpretentious. Do not miss their beet root smoothie called purple rain. It is to die for....The menu s not extensive but the quinoa salad bowl is huge and so is the chicken one. Highly recommend.More

The food is only OK. Falafels were cooked too much and very hard. The salad was too plain. The smoothie was tasty. Service was really good.

Tasty food and prompt service. I have celiac disease and require a gluten free diet. Surf Box was accommodating and knew what to modify in their dishes to make it so I could safely eat here. Great homemade corn tortillas are great substitutes for dishes...served on bread. Waiter who served us could speak English and Spanish.More

In our visit to Playa Flamingo we walked over to the Surf Box a few mornings for breakfast. It was nice 20 minute walk from Flamingo Beach and the food and service is well worth it! The Açai bowls and the pancakes were delicious! We...also enjoyed a few of their smoothies as well. The service was fantastic and the young girl always had a smile on her face. Lots of menu options to choose from.More
