Second time here. Excellent casual bistro food for brunch or lunch. Really quick delivery of food and drink. David is a terrific waiter with knowledgeable recommendations.

FRESH SQUEEZED OJ. BEST ON LINCOLN RD.

As a bonus, really nice small bookstore on site with tons of magazines.

Two for two in my book.

Probably the best value breakfast on Lincoln Road. A daily fix for us both, memories of when"The Cafe" was in the book shop still resound. Wonderful waiting staff.

Strolling on Miami's Lincoln Road, I stopped by the Cafe at Books &Books. The food was good and wholesome. I had the grilled Mai-mai sandwich with salad (see picture). Service was quick and the location is ideal for people watching. Prices are reasonable. The cafe has a varied menu and is extremely vegan friendly. I will definitely patronized this establishment again

Two couple (plus baby in stroller) dinner here recently. Mall side, under canopy seating was very pleasant and great for people watching and enjoying the cool breezes. Service was excellent. Pleasant, friendly maitre d'. Our waiter was friendly and very attentive without being annoying. A nearby family group had a mid-size dog and a small child, all accommodated without difficulty. The restaurant is affiliated with a very nice bookstore in the adjacent mall building and rest rooms are available there.

The menu is varied with a number of appetizers, soups, salads, lite fare, and bigger entrees. Prices are very reasonable, particularly considering the very generous portion sizes. Wine and drinks were available.

Highlights of our group's meals were the gazpacho, the vegetable soup, and the tropical salad. The french fries were great and the Cuban sandwich was large and tasty. With the portion sizes, "doggy bags" were needed and generously provided.

The other couple eats here frequently and confirms the other reviews that the breakfast is great. We'll be back!
