This is a small French cafe. A few street side tables w/ umbrellas and a few indoor seating options. Our service was good & our breakfast meals were good. In all... A very good experience. It's situated in a real nice area of Espanola Way. This is a section of south beach modeled after a street in Spain. Many small eateries & stores. Street parking surrounds this area...if luck is on your side to get a spot. There's also garage parking close by & valet at nearby hotels. They are known for their Crepes. I however, ordered an egg dish. Portion was good...along with price. The only reason I would not go back is because I would be trying out other restaurants in area.

The food was amazing the space very charming! The wait staff and owner epic failure!!! Ackknowlement being greated none, warm guidance through the menu none. Follow up after first taste none. Asking for water or follow up rounds mission near impossible. The staff were busy not working thier section and the owner seemed to busy horsing around with his familiars. Why not complain ti complain. Because the owner was one of our four lost servers through out this entire experience. Great food horrible ownership!

A la folie is definetely the restaurant number 1 in Miami. I have been hundred times since i moved to Florida and i cannot hesitate on going there almost every nights. I'm a french girl and it's hard for me to be satisfied 100% in french food. There i find authentic french food. I think to have tried the whole menu: my favorite dishes are "Tartiflette" and "Soupe a l'oignon". The waiters are frenchs, kind and sympathetic. I definetely feel home anytime i go. Looking forward to it.. Oh, i was forgetting, don't leave without eating the crème brulée. It's fantastic.

To be listed as one of the best places for breakfast, the cappuccino is lousy, the croquet-madame is the worst I have ever tried in my life, and the staff service is bad!.

This small sidewalk wine, expresso lite food café is affordable and a quiet oasis in the more animated scene that is South Beach. The food can be really satisfying if you pick right. The service is lackadaisical at best but this can be a good thing as you linger over wine, cheese or whatever with your loved one or a good book while occasional people watching breaks it up.
