The CafÃ© at Books & Books
Miami Beach, FL 33139
Miami New Times' Description
The food at most bookstore cafés usually encourages more fear and loathing than great expectations, but the cute little Café at Books & Books is actually a casual, inexpensive, unpretentious garden of earthly delights. Chef Bernie Matz's menu covers all the expected soup-salad-sandwich bases but also offers a few more adventurous options. One of the best is a salad featuring tender rings of grilled calamari with chorizo sofrito -- a sophisticated mélange of tastes and textures. Try the guava-glazed pork tenderloin with boniato mash, as well as coconut-crusted seared raw tuna with mango-pepper slaw. And save room for luscious cream cheese-coconut flan for dessert.
Tips from foursquare
Tofu & avocado salad is phenomenal!
You can page through the latest design and fashion books before settling on the outdoor patio with from-scratch soup and salad. Budding bookworms enjoy putting their noses in the healthy kids’ menu.
Key West Crab Cakes are a must.
Лучший гаспачо, который я пробовала, всего за 5$. Рекомендую взять их манговый лимонад и салат с кальмарами, ананасом и дыней. Обслуживание 15% включено в счет.
Best food on the beach, great American, middle eastern, Latin food and excelent vegan options. Great service, good prices
