We come to this place to see our friendly bartender! She always treat us super nice and make us feel welcomed! She already knows what we like so no need to tell her. BEST SERVICE EVER!!!

We had breakfast here for two days, the food and service are good and the location is nice in South Beach. If you are early there are enough parking spots nearby.

Go for a late breakfast, and watch all of South Beach Miami walk by. The food and service are very mediocre, but I still had a good time because it's right on Ocean Drive. Parking is horrendous, so beware of taking your car down there.

Enjoyed a number of sessions at this non touristy, very welcoming bar on SoBe. I like to think that we entertained Hector (resident longstanding barman) as much as he entertained us! So welcoming, great banter, no touristy gimmicks or deals - just a very cool place to have breakfast, lazy lunch, boozy evening. I think we were lucky as our... More

Had breakfast here before leaving Miami - what a great way to end our visit! Food wasn't anything fancy, but fresh and delicious! A civilized oasis on the crazy Ocean Dr. strip. Service was outstanding. Super location right on Ocean Dr. - large outdoor seating area, lots of people-watching opportunities.

Cafe itself is clean and nicely set up, however food was terrible. Pizza consisted of shop bought base and tasted disgusting. Left the entire pizza bar one mouthful. Would not recommend as a place to eat!

Nice little place for breakfast. But the weekend I was there a tourist was shot and killed Sunday morning while having breakfast there. The entire South Beach area seemed more rough than I remember from my last trip there about 8 years ago. I'm not interested in going back.

There are two options to go on Beach Road, which are different to the big, sleazy mass of tourists traps: News Café for brunch and Larios for a decent dinner. I wuld not say that they serve the best brunch in Miami. There might be better options. But the food is by far better than anywhere else on Beach Road... More
