Miami

A charming restaurant with adventurous Italian fare - just don't try to understand the waiters.
Charlotte Bakery
A mouth-watering array of South American pastries that taste that good you know they can't be good for you....
11th Street Diner
This authentic American diner offers an efficient hang-over cure.
A la Folie
A la Folie is wafting out a July Revolution with its stuffed crepes and eccentric chef.
CVI.CHE 105
CVI.CHE 105 is a much-hyped, enormous Miami restaurant, which serves good value Peruvian fare among chic but relaxed industrial-style decor.
Fontana
Found at the Biltmore Hotel, Fontana is the perfect place for a languid lunch beneath a parasol; work off the calories with a lap in the oversized pool afterwards.
Tiramesu
Sit outside and soak up the sun alongside the locals in this no-nonsense restaurant with delicious Italian served simple, fast and at a decent price. Perfect for that authentic cappuccino to relax or recharge.
La Sanwicherie
Fit-to-bursting baguettes and overstuffed sandwiches are the order of the day at La Sandwicherie, which is the perfect place to come to stock up for a beach picnic.
Morgan’s
American comfort food classics are served up at Morgan's, albeit with a contemporary twist; interesting interior design adds to its panache.
La Moon
Colombian style diner with a large selection of foods to satisfy those stomachs.
Joe’s Take Out
Excellent seafood picnic fare to take down to the beach.
Tapas Y Tintos
Charge your glass full of vino tinto while listening to the Gypsy Kings.

Housed inside the Catalina Hotel, Kung Fu Kitchen offers lipsmackingly good dishes from all over Asia; be sure to get here early to snag a table.
Patagonia
South American flare abounds at Patagonia, which offers all the usual grilled meats expected of the region without a hefty price tag; wash everything down with a bottle from its well-stocked wine cellar.
Jerry’s Famous Deli
Open 24 hours, Jerry's will always be there for you. With a mind-boggling 250 item menu, there is something for everyone, especially if you're craving piled-high pastrami.
Baru Urbano
Boisterous Baru Urbano is the place to come for a snack between shops, or indeed a drink or three at hour happy hour every evening.
Lime Fresh Mexican Grill
Some of the best fast food in Miami and certainly some of the healthiest if only you can resist the frozen margaritas...
Pasha’s
A mouthwatering Mediterranean menu awaits at Pasha's, which sits in prime position on the corner of Lincoln Road; vegetarians flock here here for its wide range of non-carnivorous offerings.
Van Dyke Café
Miami's only jazz bar, the Van Dyke is a popular tourist spot and perfect for a post-shopping bite. Tuck into a range of burgers, salads and pizzas with live jazz in the background.

News Café
Beginning life as a bookstore, News Café is now a fully-fledged lunch spot with a patio flanked by umbrellas and a menu that stretches way beyond simple sandwiches.
Miss Yip Café
Pop-in for challengingly-sized portions of Hong Kong cuisine and a delightfully shabby-chic interior. Always packed with regulars, which should tell you something.
Icebox Café
If it's good enough for Oprah and her yo-yoing waistline, then the cakes at Icebox Café are certainly good enough for us.
David’s Café
Have hangover food ordered directly to your spot on the beach from David's Café, which serves up tasty home-cooked Cuban fare on Collins Avenue.
Cardozo Café
Cardozo's offers excellent service and is an attractive option for a late breakfast or lunch.
