Miami New Times's Description
This small French bistro located in the heart of downtown Miami is reminiscent of a small Parisian café. It has everything from café tables on the sidewalk to fast-moving waiters. Sip your morning coffee with pan chocolate ($2), or if you are an egg person, go for the breakfast crêpe ($7). This is one of the few restaurants in town where you can enjoy a savory crêpe ($7.50) stuffed with all sorts of meats and cheeses, such as the paysanne, filled with chicken breast, ham, Swiss cheese, and Dijon mustard. For the less carnivorous customer, the la jardinière is a sure bet, with mushrooms, spinach, scallions, and Swiss cheese. Café Bastille also offers a wide range of sweet crêpes, overflowing with Nutella ($5) or dulce de leche ($5). There's also the traditionnelle ($4), made with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon or lemon. In addition to the extensive crêpe menu, the restaurant offers more traditional bistro fare such as escargots ($8.50), Niçoise salad ($8.50), steak frites ($16), and moules marinières ($13). Don't be fooled by the simple décor and brightly colored front counter - the dishes served from this tiny kitchen are big in French flavor.
Tips from foursquare
Don’t count carbs here. Chef Christian Joualt’s first love is baking, as evidenced by the crackling baguettes, croissants and rich, pillowy bread pudding. Via CityEats.com
