This place is always packed during breakfast, probably because of their good and fresh food and affordable prices considering it's just on Ocean Avenue.

We visited on our first night in Miami, quite late, the service was lovely and the food was just as nice. We then visited again for breakfast and again for lunch, both times we thoroughly enjoyed the food and the friendly staff. It’s in prime...More

Marketing makes miracles, and News Cafe is promoted very well. But: - food is average, - staff is busy and not interested the guests, - interior is dark and dirty. We know much better places in Miami Beach

Had breakfast here - best we had in a fortnight. Our server was flamboyant and entertaining, breakfast was incredible value, and top notch.

Bit of a let down very average. Slightly cold food with a waiter that looked like he couldn’t be bothered. We expected much better with it being so famous but it didn’t live up to it

Great place for breakfast. Was recommended by the hotel concierge as a good brunch restaurant. Good menu, plenty of options to choose from.

The News Cafe is a South Beach original and a charming spot for breakfast amoung the aggressive hawkers along Ocean Drive. It feels very European and has shady tables under a wonderful tree that attracts local Parrots. The food is good, not special, but prepared...More
