Recently in our trip to Miami we ate several times at this restaurant with an amazing cook, great service and atmosphere. We went for dinner and ate the Filet Mignon. The pommes frites were to die for. We decided to go back on Sunday and tried the brunch. The Benedictines and omelettes were delicious! Highly recommended! Enjoy it!

We came on Sunday and were lucky to get a table for our group. The food we ordered was huge, looked great and was tasty. The waitress made a mistake with my order, but brought me some complimentary mimosa, so I thought that was really nice of them. I'd definitely recommend this place!

Quite a large group of us went on a Sunday morning for brunch and we were very well accommodated, it's a great place for couples too for a beautiful breakfast. A large variety of eggs benedict, very well done and great coffee. Fantastic find, defiantly recommended you will not be disappointed.

You should try the Benedictines eggs, these are amazing and the coffee is excellent with a really good taste. The service is very good, the waiters area really helpful.

Went her for breakfast/brunch on a Saturday. Loved the ambiance and the food was excellently prepared. Great coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. Live in West Palm but next time I'm in Miami I will definitely return.

Not bad for a tiny cafe restaurant in a central busy place like downtown Miami! Food was good, wine was better and the menu had classic french dishes well cooked and served. Service was nice! Disappointed from the dessert which was named "profiterol" but was actually a croissant with ice cream and nutella cream. Prices within logic!

Found this place by chance whilst walking in downtown at around 7 in the evening. The place immediately appealed as a friendly, welcome and secure place for the family as there were two well dressed and respectable ladies eating their meals alone outside. We chose to also sit outside and watch the world of Miami go by although there were... More

Cafe Bastille was our choice for a breakfast place. Friendly staff serving absolutely delicious French inspired dishes. I went for Crepes Norvegien which was a perfect composition of salmon, creme fraiche, tomatoes and soft red onions. Other pictures show my kids' choices - these were gone in an instant. If you have a choice between a hotel breakfast and Cafe... More

French restaurant with a great atmosphere inside (comfortable sofas, quiet music) and delicious food. The waiter was really kind and ready to answer our questions about the dishes. I'm sure that I'll visit Café Bastille again during my next visit to Miami.
