I had the best crepe. It was high quality, and very nice.Also the cafe reminded me the same ambience as the French cafe back in the old days. I highly recommend it

Dining at this restaurant has the atmosphere of being on a French Caribbean island. The service was good and the food was tasty. The resident cat is friendly to people who know how to treat cats, although he did hiss at the little girl at the table next to us who tried to pull his tail. I've noticed a few... More

Great crepes. Great food recommendations as our girls want lactose free. Very healthy except our one daughter got the delicious Nutella, banana, strawberry crepe. Fun to be on Espanola Way. Have a live in cat that was very friendly. Cafe type atmosphere, very casual. Used restaurant.com coupon to save some money.

We went there because we were looking for this cute French atmosphere that the restaurant website was talking about however we wanted to sit outside and after just a few Minutes, got bitten by mosquitos. We decided to come back inside, the air conditioning was obviously not working. When my daughter asked to go the bathroom, we discovered something not... More

Espanola Way is a quaint little street to walk down. You can find this little cafe at the end of the street. We had a lovely little breakfast here. The almond croissant was delicious, but the overall charm is what gave this place 5 stars.

We had not been at Á La Folie in a number of years and were terribly disappointed to find the once charming and truly rustic French café rusty inside and out. Nonetheless we wanted to savor their formerly delicious crēpes - but what disenchantment! The crêpe suzette arrived quickly, yet somewhat sloppily prepared and served lukewarm, with orange marmelade distributed... More

Well worth the extra few steps on Espanola Way (it is the last restaurant in the street :). I had the quiche Lorraine and my partner had a merguez sandwich. Both were super tasty (I've lived in the UK for 14 years and am yet to find a decent merguez!!!) Also pleasantly very reasonably priced for South Beach! We also... More

There were four of us with three different sandwiches and one crepes. It was not the best crepes restaurant that we've ever enjoyed, but it was more than adequate and tasty and something different for South Beach. The outdoor café atmosphere was nice and we enjoyed the resident cat.
