Yes, its a book store but the Cafe is great. Its a must visit if you are in the gables, tho he also has locations at the Arsht Center, on the Beach and a few others. Sitting on the Patio in the gables, enjoying a great sandwich, coffee and a really good dessert, surrounded by books and good people. I love it here.
Coconut grove for lunch. Love this place.
The food is good but the atmosphere is why i go. Sometimes I just want to eat in the garden and this is one of the few places in Miami where one can do that. The bonus being the food is good and you take a walk through the Grove afterwards. It can feel like wind tunnel outside and they are pretty strict about not serving dinner items at lunch.

Let’s talk disco fries and grilled swiss cheese and bacon on whole wheat.
In my backyard, why don’t i go more. Its a great lunch spot or to pick up dinner. As I write this it occurs to me I need a tag for take out and this is going on the list .
A traditional Ice Cream Parlor imitation. The sundaes are served in tall glass bowls, the ice cream is great and people love the patty melt too.
at Merrick park has become a new favorite. Its so lovely to sit outside in a pretty though unnatural setting. The food is great and varied, the service usually good tho never great. . In my mind this is meant to be a relaxing place to waste away some time over good food with a good friend.
In south Miami in the old Larios building. And just as good. This is the easy casual bar in town, good food, easy to be at , neighborhood restaurant.
