    The music is '60s classics, the atmosphere is coffee-shop casual -- a nice little neighborhood spot. Food is American comfort, with most appetizers and salads under $10 and entrées under $20. Read more

    The braised cheeks were outstanding- if they're on the menu, get them. The latkes are amazing year round. Don't skip on the Mac and cheese- super creamy with a bit of a bite.

    Definitely one of the best meals we had in Miami. Gorgeous food found in a casual environment. Kudos to the chef who stuck to the basics and do it so well. Will be back. Popular so do reserve.

    Lovely spot. Latkes are huge and I'd give them a 6. Don't be dumb like me and overorder and miss a chance to eat the chocolate cake. #magicdateday

    Pork n beans and mac n cheese were my favorite dishes. Good experience, but it gets uncomfortably hot inside due to the proximity of the open kitchen to the dining room. No kids menu.
