“Excellent spot for breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

The news cafe is a very nice outdoor atmosphere as shade is provided by cool looking seagrapes trees (vs. the standard ubiquitous umbrellas). But besides that the food is solid, not necessarily a cut above the rest per se, but very solid and good value. Very good service too.

“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

My husband and I went here for brunch. I had the yogurt with granola and fruit and my husband had a turkey sandwich. It was a great people watching place and the food was pretty good.

“Great value on ocean dr”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Dinner is the best value on ocean dr. You have both American and great Mediterranean food. We had the Greek salad and combo plater. Too much food for two people. Great people watching spot.

“best of the Drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

By far the best place to eat on Ocean Drive. the food is good, the products are fresh, and above all it's the only place (bar Johnny Rockets) that doesn't have anybody hassle you to read a menu or get a table. Great setting, no loud music, great srvice and good value for money.

“Great place in South Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Great place in South Beach we eat at this location in July . Shaded by tress and views of the beach, make this an exceptional and memorable location. Service is good and food is reasonably priced. They have good drinks too!!!
