It had so much food options for breakfast and brunch. The service was good, food was great. I had the Californian omelette which was really good with sausage, bacon, fries and toast. It was a lot but I ate every bit of it lol. The mimosas was also really good, right amount of champagne and oj.

If you love brunch, the Front Door Cafe is the place for you. The food is good and the prices are really reasonable. I was shocked about the prices, considering that it's on South Beach. The place is always packed; so, there may be a bit of a wait but it's worth it. Sb: I was here in July and... More

A little hard to find near one end of popular Ocean Drive in Miami Beach, it is a welcome stop for good food, in an otherwise crazed and touristic area. Air conditioning inside is nice, or sit outside and watch life go by. Great menu selections for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Very good service.

Some of the best food in Miami. I eat here at least twice throughout my stay when I come to Miami. They have ressonsble prices to be located on Ocean Drive. The staff is always pleasant and attentive.

Went here during the week, and arrived about 10am.... had to wait for about 30 minute for our table, and another 40 for our food. They were up front about the wait times, and we were hungry but agreeable. By the time we got our food, we were hungry enough to eat anything, but boy were we impressed. I ordered... More

I saw the great reviews and decided to give this a try. It was a great meal! They had a lot of outdoor seating and seemed to be turning the tables quickly, however we decided to be seated right away and sat inside. The service was good, not outstanding-only in that we had to ask for drink refills, and I... More

My Husband and I came here for breakfast early morning and it was great. We were seated pretty much immediately and had water quite quickly after. I ordered the Breakfast Sandwich and my Husband went for the Beach Breakfast Burrito. The wait for food wasn't long and the portions were big. The food tasted great - the potatoes on the... More

The story of Ocean Drive is ever changing, but our neighborhood spot has remained the same for more than 25 years as a laid back classic & memorable Home- cooked experience.
