This place had it all! Great Sangria that was a bargain if you get a pitcher, great salads and perhaps the best sandwich around - Miami steak and cheese. Not overpriced for the area and the server was excellent too plus it's attached to a great bookstore!

I would guess that some guy(or gal) with a spread sheet decided that they could really capitalize on the location by reducing the quality and offering to Lincoln Road standards. Alas, they were successful This lovely outdoor spot is not to be taken seriously anymore, There is one less reason to dine on Lincoln Road. The menu sounds interesting but the execution is now just perfunctory. I say this with a heavy heart and perhaps the dwiindling of other local custom will make them reconsider. The bookstore is still nice.

the Cafe at Books and Books has, like the bookstore, history as one of South Beach's staple restaurants. They have fresh flavorful food and you can't beat the people watching views on Lincoln Road. They have meals from sandwiches to full delicious entrées. It's a favorite for locals so you know the food is good and the place isn't a tourist trap.

A great place for lunch and people watching on Lincoln Road. The food is fresh and healthy with many vegan offerings and the bonus is a trip into the bookstore for some great browsing! We will definitely go back!
