Nice menu- food is fresh and very good. We had both breakfast and lunch and the food quality was good. Service was attentive. Nice to sit outside and watch the interesting people pass by. The yogurt with granola and fresh fruit was delicious- definitely would go back

Sat at the main bar, no problems! Nathalie was actually very helpful and friendly. I stayed there longer than the usual patron without being hassled.

We were in and out in about half an hour - and still managed to have an absolutely delicious breakfast. Eggs cooked to perfection and super nice staff. Buzzing atmosphere, would definitely recommend it.

This spot was alright, I had chicken and waffles and my chicken was fried extremely hard with barely any meat. My friend had french toast and that was alright too. The staff is friendly though.

Great outdoor cafe in the heart and soul of South Beach. Open 24 hours a day! Formerly owned by Miami Sounds Machine (Glorida Estefan). The sidewalk restaurant is great place to dine and take in the sights of Ocean Drive.

Well, you probably guessed it, based on the title of my review: these days are long gone. Ownership must have changed (perhaps several times) and what you're getting today (Food and service) is mediocre at best. I... More
