“1st visit, last visit”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Stopped in here before checking trip advisor. Did not find it to be a great choice for breakfast. Expensive and the quality of the food suffered. The homefries were soggy and inedible. The omelet was OK, but suffered from inferior food quality. Velveeta cheese doesn't cut it on an omelet. One of the staff members reviewing some paperwork about 15 feet away from us openly sneezed without covering her nose. Ugh! Perhaps they do better with lunch and dinner, but we avoided this place afterwards.

“Snobby; they need to realize they don't make the best coffee in the world and should let you bring coffee in from another place.”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We looked at their menu. It looked good and the atmosphere seemed decent. After being seated and 5 minutes of waiting/looking through the menu we were asked to either throw out to coffee we had brought in or to leave. We left! Why does a place that specializes in food think they should also specialize in something they know nothing about! I hate places like this. We were going to spend over $30.00 on breakfast, at a minimum! Yet, because we obviously were not going to buy their $2.00 burned drip coffee we took our service elsewhere. They would off made plenty off of us from our food orders. Ontop of that, why didn't the hostess tell us before we sat down, looked over the menu, had food picked out, and waited to order!

“Matzo in Miami”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Is there anything better than being in Miami in January? YES! Eating out-of-this-world Matzo Ball Soup in January in Miami. Life just doesn't get any better. Maybe it's because we were two giddy New Yorkers, elated at the fact that we were dressed in our summer play clothes while our frigid bretheren 1,300 miles due north endured temperatures in the 20's, but tropical euphoria aside, the food here is first class Jewish Deli comfort food. My husband dove into a giant sized bowl of his favorite soup on the planet and was delighted to see a baseball sized globe of a matzo ball floating in a nest of al dente soup noodles. That wonder was topped only with the best Pastrami on Rye of his life...even better, he declared, than the Carnegie Deli in NYC. My eye was caught by the Mile High Burger. It was deliciously charred, pink on the inside as I ordered it, draped with a generous canvas of melted Swiss, and served with a side of just-made Russian Dressing, crisp onion rings, and sides of baked beans and slaw. This was our brunch...and we didn't feel our stomachs rumble with hunger until the following day.

The atmosphere isn't fancy, and it's not supposed to be. It's old-world deli, you're meant to feel at home and we did. Reasonable prices too - and they serve 24 hours a day - oy vey!

Note: In the photo below, the gorgeous matzo ball has a noticeable incision. My husband instinctively tore into it but I made him pause for a beautiful-bowl-of-soup photo op.

“Great food”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

It's everything - a deli, a bakery and a bar. Each one is terrific. And a nice sidewalk cafe area as well.

“Good breakfast place in South Beach”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Good breakfast place but lacks atmosphere and is looking a bit tired. The service was first class and the cost was reasonable.
