We only ate here once for breakfast but the menu is great and you'll find something to suit all appetites and tastes. Rustic decor, good service and reasonably priced.

Nothing special about the food.. salad and sandwich. Good location, friendly service although one order was bizarrely changed without referral to us.

Good location. Well known and popular cafe. Food usual menu items and average/uninspiring. Ran out of pecans for a salad and chefs executive decision was to replace with raw red onions and lots of them! Any decent place should ask customer rather than hoping we wouldn't notice. We rekectesbhis choice and chose something else so OK finally. Crab cakes were... More

The sidewalk seating is delightful for the parade of people watching, and the hours of service were perfect for a good hot breakfast after sunrise on the beach. This spot is one of my favorites.

We visited once for breakfast for a change of scenery. Service was good, food was nice and plentiful and the decor rustic. If you're looking for a change then why not here?

We first wandered into News Cafe due to the proximity to our hotel. We soon learned that most everyone does the same as it is a perfect location for good quality food at all hours. Very wide-ranging menu, but everything we tried was very good (breakfast/lunch/nighttime cravings). Middle eastern/Mediterranean platters/salads were highlights. Friendly staff.

After being accosted numerous times by various venues along south beach, we finally decided on the News Cafe. While initially dubious from the outside, I urge you to look past this and give it a go. The extensive menu can be a little overwhelming at first, but after a brief explanation of certain aspects from our waiter, we settled the... More

News Cafe was perfect for our breakfast. We stayed around the corner and would purchase our New York Times each morning and then we decided to have breakfast. The oatmeal was good was French toast was great and everyone's meal was good. Recommended.

We enjoyed a hearty breakfast on the outside terrace where we could watch people coming and going on Ocean Drive. The food and service were top-notch: we had traditional eggs, bacon and home fries as well as pancakes.
