We visit the News Cafe whenever we are in SoBe. It's a very reasonable option on Ocean Drive- an area full of tourist oriented over-priced restaurants and "babes with menus" looking to lure you in. The News Cafe food is very good, though modestly overpriced (as is almost everything in the area). The service is very good at all times... More

We went here for dinner and really enjoyed it. Great location right on Ocean Drive in the heart of the South Beach action. We were really impressed with the wide selection on the menu, and the quality of the food. Our second visit, and will go back again.

Stopped for a chicken salad. Service was functional... Not friendly, not unfriendly. Unfortunately, when compared with my visit to the same cafe this time last year, the service seemed Lacking. Also, salad was about half the size, with loads of stuff absent from the plate. I am one of "those people" who takes pictures of my food, and I just... More

This seems to be a famous institution on Ocean Drive, and we found it bustling and vibrant on a Sunday lunchtime. We enjoyed people-watching both passers-by on the street, and our fellow customers. Service was short and sweet, the food was good, plentiful and with plenty of choice. You're paying for the location, but it's worth it.

Literally stumbled upon this place as we walked off the beachfront pathways looking for a breakfast spot. Busy and bustling at mid-morning, we decided to try it. We were seated on a small balcony overlooking the ground floor front of the restaurant, so perfect view for people watching and nicely away from the hubbub. Had a lovely breakfast of perfectly...

Stopped here for lunch on our bike ride and sat at a table right on the street for the people watching. It was a great choice for that and the food was OK. I had the Philly Steak which was pretty good but my wife's Panini was average. My wife wishes she had the grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup... More
