|Green Street Cafe on Miami's South Side|
Known as a social gathering spot for anybody who is anybody (and everybody else) in Miami, GreenStreet Cafe is not just a place to see and be seen; it offers great food in a casual atmosphere no matter what time of day you decide to stop by.
GreenStreet Cafe's breakfast and lunch menu provides everything from specialty pancakes to french toast to a wide variety of omelettes. If you're looking to get your sweet tooth on, our friend Laura highly recommends the Nutella-filled crepes - she says they are "Amaaazing" (the Nutella French toast is pretty incredible, too). Lighter fare includes a variety of fruit plates, bagels, yogurt and continental breakfast choices. Several popular bloody mary and sparkling champagne options are available, too.
As great as GreenStreet Cafe's breakfasts are, lunchtime is when they really begin to shine. A modest menu offers everything from surf and turf to pastas, salads and wraps. The salmon, whether ordered as an entree or served with pasta is not to be missed and all of their salads are great - the perfect mix of each ingredient. Each of their pizzas are a little different than you'll get a typical pizza joint, as well.
The dinner menu at GreenStreet Cafe is very similar to the lunch menu. If you like seafood, you never can go wrong with their Yellow Tail Snapper. All of their pasta dishes are excellent and, like practically everything at GreenStreet Cafe, they are prepared with a flare of originality. Specialty drinks are also fantastic here - especially their Martinis and Margaritas!
Offering indoor or al fresco seating, GreenStreet Cafe is a great place to meet up with friends, have a casual business meal and people watch. Definitely stop by GreenStreet Cafe the next time you're on the south side of Miami. You're just not Miami chic until you do!
TIP: On weekends, breakfast and brunch are extremely busy and you could be waiting an hour or more for a table. Service also tends to be a bit slow during these terrifically busy times. Unless you don't mind a very long dining experience, stick to the weekdays for your morning or mid-morning meals at GreenStreet Cafe. Of course, when a place is this busy, there's usually a very good reason for it!
