“Terribly disappointing”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

We re locals, living right in the neighborhood. We ve now tried ice box 5 times; all very disappointing. The ambience is gorgeous and that's where it ends. The good is just plain terrible. The staff is very good but with a kitchen that has no clue what they're doing, food is either never delivered, late, or plain horrible and must be sent back. They need to fire the entire kitchen staff and start over. Waste of time and money, go to one of the Pubbelly restaurants. You won t be disappointed.

“Great atmosphere, okay food, not worth the money or wait.”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Went for Sunday brunch at their new location, waited for about an hour to sit down. The atmosphere is very modern and comfortable, very nice. Service was good, food took 25 min to come out. I had the French toast, it was okay. For the price I expected great food, not okay. Overall, was a mediocre experience and I would not go back, not worth the money.

This is the new location, which opened just a couple weeks ago. Gorgeous little place, twice the size at least as the previous location. Just by the marina, which gives it a light and airy vibe. The food is a tad less good than at previous location, perhaps because management is still in the throes of transition. But the menu is varied, fresh, high quality. The ambiance busy and hip.
HIGHLY recommended for anyone visiting Miami. An easy cab across the bridge if you're downtown, which is where I was. This is located at the bottom of South Beach.

“Love the NEW location & Decor”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Had heard sooo much about Ice Box Cafe.Stopped by the old location on Michigan .. Nice cute little place.Saw the sign that they were relocating to Purdy Avenue. WOW! Gorgeous decor.only problem was .. The FIRST week at their NEW LOCATION, they underestimated how popular it would be & ran out of MOST of their food! There were NO APPETIZER dishes,few salads & only two of their desserts. I tried the salmon which was FANTASTIC. I WILL certainly go back though. The manager & staff were extremely attentive & courteous, as well as profusely apologetic. They took 50% off our bill.Now..THAT'S just good & smart CUSTOMER service!

This place was awesome. It had recently moved to this location. The decor was incredible. The Manager Jeff and co-owner Sean were great in being able to accomodate me and my friends ever need. I will never eat brunch at another spot on SoBe. The best dish is the french toast by far. It will make you want to slap yo momma it is so good. They also have this green mint tea, INCREDIBLE.

Thank you Jeff for your extra special touch *wink*. And thanks Sean for sharing your little *taste* of heaven with us.

If you are ever in town, do stop by here and enjoy a fab brunch.
