The chicken satay omelette and Ruben omelette were both faultless, the coffee flowed freely and we were even offered to-go cups of coffee. The location is perfect for grabbing a bite before heading out to the beach. And then, if you're as... More

The restaurant is at far North end of Ocean Drive. This is a busy restaurant and they do good business! We had breakfast and the food was good. There was a wait as we expected, but enjoyed the people watching. We both ordered the Beach Breakfast Deluxe which included 3 eggs, with choice of meat and fruit, salad, toast--and juice... More

The Breakfasts are great. So are the lunches. They have been experimenting with different dinners but my experiences have all been good. A place the locals go to and they have a loyal following.

I absolutely loved the food here! It is definitely one of the best breakfasts in Miami Beach. The wait times can get long, but it's worth it! The staff, especially the bartender, were friendly and fast. We ordered the French toast, and it was great. I highly recommend taking a stop here while in Miami.
