We had dinner at the News Cafe. The food was very good. Grilled chicken and pasta with fresh tomato, basil, and olive oil. We went back for breakfast the next morning; had eggs benedict and french toast. Again, the food was good. Both times the service was rather uneven. We had trouble getting our bill at the end of the... More

If you enjoy the crowded South Beach scene, this is a really good place for breakfast, if you like eggs. The selection is pretty limited to eggs, however you want them or bagels. No hash.

Can't find a better spot to watch people going to South Beach. Always open and always busy. Wait staff is patient and polite. Love the Breakfast Special-- 2 eggs, choice of meat, potatoes, toast or English Muffin, coffee and juice for $11.75. A South Beach bargain.

Disappointed by our hotel breakfast options, we decided to try the well known News Cafe. There are a lot of cafes on ocean drive with breakfasts costing $5 to $10. The News cafe does too but has some interesting options like eggs benedict which I had with fruit. It was probably the best eggs benedict I've had. Great service too.... More

Nice menu- food is fresh and very good. We had both breakfast and lunch and the food quality was good. Service was attentive. Nice to sit outside and watch the interesting people pass by. The yogurt with granola and fresh fruit was delicious- definitely would go back

Sat at the main bar, no problems! Nathalie was actually very helpful and friendly. I stayed there longer than the usual patron without being hassled.

We were in and out in about half an hour - and still managed to have an absolutely delicious breakfast. Eggs cooked to perfection and super nice staff. Buzzing atmosphere, would definitely recommend it.
