The original Icebox Cafe is located at Lincoln Road on South Beach. It was established in 1998 and has become a local institution in Miami-Dade County. It is known for its healthy foods, delectable desserts and coffees. Icebox is noted for its quality customer service and is the it place to go for a meal, or for a coffee or tea (with or without a dessert) with a friend, to sit and read the paper, or to go for dinner after leaving a show at one of the nearby theatres. Icebox has had one basic philosophy since its inception: to offer homemade gourmet food, prepared with the freshest of local ingredients available, at affordable prices and served with the highest and best customer service.
I only went there for the dessert and wow it was delicious. I got a slice of the red velvet cake and a slice of the almond pistachio cake. OMG, the almond cake is light and airy and not too sweet. It is delicious. I would go there if just for the dessert.
I recommend the pancake of the day, which is always a unique flavor and sauce $14 Scrambled eggs come with tiny side salad and muffin and portion is small for $13 so you will leave hungry. Also, on two occasions my muffin was frozen in the middle. Service is poor. I have dined here for 5 years and they still have not been able to coordinate a smooth order taking/serving system. Customers love to bring dogs and feed then from the table or actually have thenm sit at the table which grosses me out.I stoped dining here because $25 for breakfast is too expensive for a bare bones place like this.
