    Great ambience and quality of service. The food is reasonably priced as opposed to many of the restaurants on the South Beach. Look out for their burgers section!

    All the restaurants on Lincoln Road suck. This is the only good one, trust me. Plus they have great salads. I get the pear and kale salad+chicken. The quinoa, red bean salad is great, Cobb is good too

    This café is an excellent place to browse a smorgasbord of titles (or pretend to do so). The menu boasts sandwiches and salads including Tuna Nicoise ($14.95), and Pan-Asian Chicken, $10.95. Read more

    You can page through the latest design and fashion books before settling on the outdoor patio with from-scratch soup and salad. Budding bookworms enjoy putting their noses in the healthy kids’ menu.

    Лучший гаспачо, который я пробовала, всего за 5$. Рекомендую взять их манговый лимонад и салат с кальмарами, ананасом и дыней. Обслуживание 15% включено в счет.
