“Fun Lunch Spot on Lincoln Road”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch while shopping on Lincoln Road. Great atmosphere and outdoor seating. Terrific people watching spot. Interesting, "diner-like" menu with tons of options for all day breakfast to sandwiches to more expensive entrees. Food was very good and our server helped dispel the SoBe reputation of horrible service. Can't go wrong having lunch here. Enjoy!

“A place to have an informal and light breakfast or lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

There are many good restaurants on Lincoln Rd and this one is not exactly one of the best although I am not saying is bad. I will say is an average to good place to eat.
Menu is American style and not really nothing to remember.

“So close..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

We just don't visit a Cafe and expect a Mediterranean style meal, there are plenty of restaurants nearby for that. Anyway this is a cafe and I will rate it as such. A great spot for coffee and desert. They also feature a live band which can also be heard via speakers for those who choose to sit al fresco. They also have a full bar...great ambiance

“Good service terrible food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

When the my side salad arrived I knew the food was going to be questionable at best. Copious amounts of bad Caesar dressing made the lettuce soggy and limp. The seared tuna entree ($24) arrived and was obviously not a high grade of fish, very tough and taste was not good (being polite). After two bites I pushed the plate away, as did two others at the table.

On the positive side the outside seating is nice and our server was very attentive. I actually felt bad for her because she knew the tuna was not well received by my party. There is live music but upstairs but we didn't linger. We actually went to find decent food elsewhere.

“Varies.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Sometimes the food is better than others. We've had bad service before on more than one occasion. The live music upstairs really makes this a place worth patronizing.
