Nice café, great lunch options. They have a small menu, but offer plenty of healty options. The decor is clean and cool. It´s seems to be popular with the locals - few tourists venture to that part of Miami Beach - thank God!

I overheard someone talking about this restaurant on the beach, and their conversation convinced me to try it. My guest and I enjoyed good food, drinks and desserts. The salmon was very tasty and cooked to order. We enjoyed the sampling of half-size cake slices. The restaurant had a nice ambience and I added this to my short list of... More

Had all adult family dinner here recently. Restaurant is in a nice, quiet area of Miami Beach. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Indoor is sleek, modern, and attractive. Outdoor is in a covered breezeway and ok, but less attractive. We chose outdoor as we were toting a baby and other families with kids were out there. Our hightop was... More

Ice box is in a cute neighborhood in Miami Beach. The salads, wraps and whole roasted chicken are definite must try. Also the vegetable frittata, it's outstanding. Love the mint iced tea in a pitcher filled with generous handful of mint

We went to icebox to have dinner on Friday with friends I ordered the curry chicken and it tasted awesome! As dessert we ordered a chocolate cake with cream...really good 😊. The staff was super friendly and the waitress too. Will go back for sure

Smart place, great food and coffee and friendly staff. Highly recommend. Much better value than most of the crappy food places on Miami Beach.

Was recommended the icebox for being a little different from other cafes in the area. At first liked the setup and the waiting service was good. But unfortunately it was downhill from there. They managed to get my order wrong and also over cook my wife's food. They were pretty quick at turning it around but didn't show much willing... More

Had a lunch at Icebox - understaffed - but out waiter was quite efficient. The food tasty and nice presented. But let's say average. We had salmon and a quinoa salad- and for dessert the lime pie which was a disappointment. The venue is nicely down casual. Prices were expensive for the food.

We were surprised by the exotic combination of tastes in most of the dishes. Guacamole with curry and chamosa was one of our favorites. I asked for a ceviche with "fish of the day" (unfortunately it was salmon) and it was quite poor in comparison with the other things we ate
