Delicious brunch, perfect view of the beach and people. A little messy on the weekends, but still worth.

With a nightlife that sees no end, whenever you call it quits and start to go again means you may need that all important breakfast. News Cafe has a full menu but of note is the all-day breakfast, including favorites like huevos rancheros and a ham and cheese omelette. Doesn't sound fancy, but the price, the service and the location... More

We were a group of 11 on a very busy weekend and they sat us pretty fast. We are locals so I had low expectations for the food bc of the touristy location and the fact that all the restaurants in the area were so full. But I was pleasantly surprised. My husband had the eggs Benedict. They were very... More

We each had a cheeseburger. reg fries and sweet potato fries. All of our food was very good. A little expensive, but everything in south florida is expensive. Service was very good.

The place to see and be seen. Unlike many other spots on Ocean Drive, the food is exactly what it says. The outside terrace will occupy your senses for many hours with the never-ending parade of cars and people. This is the place to go on Sunday morniing for great breakfast dishes.An "icon" in South Beach
