Description: Located on the famous Collins Avenue at 172 Street in “Florida’s Riviera” (Sunny Isles Beach) our café has the feel of a European piazza. With a full bar and a restaurant, we offer an outdoor/indoor space with gorgeous views, refreshing ocean breezes, and fine food. Come visit us and enjoy your hand-crafted cocktail, gourmet meal, or special event in a fun, relaxed atmosphere!“My original vision for the Sunny Isles Beach Epicure was to create a European-feeling restaurant and café within the market. After two years of great success, I was excited to expand the existing café into a full-service restaurant with a fresh, new menu.”Jason Starkman, CEO Open 7 Days a Week: 8AM-midnight everydayFull Bar: Liquor, Beer, WineFlat Screen TelevisionsFull –Service Coffee BarDelivery

“Looks Great But ...”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Stopped in the other day at this gourmet cafe for pastry and coffee. The servers are attentive and nice enough, but immediately begin speaking to everyone in Spanish assuming that they speak the language. It happens that I do, but my partner does not, so it was not optimal.
We ordered ice tea, which had no taste, cafe con leche which was equally sub par, the cheeese cake which was a small round portion and not very fresh and an order of coconut cake, which was the poorest imitation of cake that I have ever seen. At $6.95 a slice it was not worth the money and simply not worth the caloric investment.
We also purchased some gourmet bread for $5.99 at their market which we threw out after tasting it as it was old and tasted terrible.
We will not be going there again.

“Loved the food!”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

Epicure is a goumet market and a restaurant, "all in one".
The menu is a mix of latino/international food, with some traditional american dishes, overall, the food was absolutely great, casual ambience, and reasonable prices.
My sister had the Cobb Salad, and I asked for a gourmet burguer, both came very well prepared, would definitely go again!
