“Nouveau breakfast”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Nice place to sit and watch the south beach world go by while having an excellent breakfast. As the name implies, you're literally sitting on the front porch. Service was excellent, food fantastic. Tables a bit crowded together, but not a big deal for a place like this. The french toast has a hint of orange zest in it, very unique, outstanding!!! My wife had the migas eggs, spicy scrambled with tortilla chips. Also unique, and exquisite flavors Their bacon was crispy fresh cooked, always a sign of a good breakfast place. The only negative, and this is a big one for a breakfast place, is their coffee. It was watery with a metallic hint. If I go again, I'd get my coffee at the Starbucks across the street first. Make sure you check out the windows in the adjacent bar ceiling that look up into the pool, very cool.

Came here for supper whilst on business. Very good food and nice atmosphere. Nicely tucked away. Excellent rosé wine, and pasta was fantastic.
Would come back

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

There are so many disappointing restaurants on South Beach and its hard to choose. I was looking for a breakfast place and found this one on trip advisor so figured I would give it a shot. I thought the breakfast was very good. French toast is extremely large portion made with challah bread. Love the potatoes! Our server Elizabeth did a great job. I was watching here take care of almost everyone and she was very fast and attentive. This place is at the very top of ocean drive.

“Consistent and great for late breakfast or lunch”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This place has been around for twenty years and its a go to place close to the beach for lunch and breakfast. The food is very good and the quantity is generous. Try any of the omelettes and have them any way you like.
The salads are fresh, with the tuna salad being our favorite. The menu is extensive and you will definitely find something to your taste.
The service while a bit slow is friendly and really what is the rush.
The location is between 14th and 15th on Ocean in the heart of South Beach.

“Best Breakfast”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

This is a great place to eat breakfast!! Portions are huge and delicious. Our server Elizabeth was attentive and remembered us when we came back the next day. Close to where we were staying and sitting out on the "porch" for breakfast was wonderful.
