Apart from the great breakfast served up it was very refreshing to be able to listen to some relaxing classical music and chill out first thing in the morning The waiters are real characters. It feels like a slice of the old Miami Beach

Very attentive service and ample portions. We had the scrambled eggs with ham and cheese which were excellent. Nice outdoor Garden Cafe atmosphere which allowed people watching, the favorite activity on Ocean Boulevard.
