Casual Breakfast on the Square – Miami

Time for breakfast!  It was mid-morning and we needed some fuel before starting our day of exploration in southeast Florida.  Dawn Marie took us to one of her standard morning wake up spots within a block or two of her condo…

This is Angelina’s Coffee and Juice… This family owned business serves locally ground Panther Coffee, fresh pressed organic juices, omelets, flatbreads, vegan crepes, salads and their highly touted Adult Grill Cheese sandwiches.  All of Angelina’s offerings are made with fresh products that are delivered daily by local providers.

It was busy inside Angelina’s!  Service was prompt and very friendly.  You place your order at the counter and they call you when it’s ready.  As you can see from the blackboards on the wall, there are many items to choose from…

I think that Laurie’s fruit laden waffle was the best item that we ordered!  They sure didn’t skimp on the fruit and the powdered sugar gave this breakfast entrée a little extra pop…

Angelina’s also offers sweet crepes in addition to its vegan crepes.  One of the more interesting sweet crepe offerings is the S’Mores crepe.  It’s a crepe with chocolate, Graham crackers and marshmellow.  Sounds pretty decadent, don’t you think! 

Since bacon is Laurie’s favorite food…she ordered some to accompany her waffle!
At Angelina’s…and many if not most restaurants in the area…you can dine inside or outside.  We ate outside in the beautiful Florida ‘winter’ weather…sunshine and warmth!

Dawn ordered an omelet with multi-grain toast.  I don’t know what she had in her omelet but it was one of her standard breakfast choices…

Note that despite this restaurant’s casual approach to dining, Angelina’s serves their meals on china… Nice!

My omelet was of course a combination of meat and cheese…in this case ham, bacon and Havarti cheese.  It was quite good but my issue with omelets made this way is that the eggs tend to be a little overcooked.  I prefer omelets a bit fluffier… As you can see, I went with white toast.

The next time we dine at Angelina’s we’re going for one of their Adult Grilled Cheese Sandwiches!  Laurie would probably order the Havarti, Goat Cheese, Prosciutto, Tomatoes and Arugula, on Multi-Grain bread.  I’m leaning toward the Provolone, Chorizo, Arugula and Tumac on Country bread…

Thanks for joining us for breakfast… We were fueled up and ready for our next adventure!  Angelina’s Coffee and Juice is located at 3451 Northeast 1st Avenue in Miami.  Phone: 305-424-9124.  Check out their Website:

  1. One of the best reasons for being in south Florida in the winter is being able to eat outside under the umbrellas at local restaurants. Anytime we have guests, that's their favorite place to go. Breakfast at Angelina's looks wonderful. I would like to try the adult grilled cheese too.

  2. These are beautiful choices for breakfast. A wonderful way to start the day! Blessings, Catherine
