Ridiculously overpriced wine, but it was convenient to our location. They have some liquor choices. Staff are nice.

We had breakfast at Ciao Sidewalk Cafe, mainly because our usual go-to place was really busy and had a long wait for a table. I had the french toast which was pretty good, but my husband had the pancakes which he said were awful. First they were gigantic and really thick and he said they were too doughy tasting and...

We stopped here for breakfast originally I was worried about mosquitoes with my pregnant daughter but the cafe is set back and a nice combo of enclosed feeling but still open air and we never saw any mosquitoes. The service was good and the food good but the atmosphere makes this restaurant stand out. the decor is interesting down to... More

This is tucked away in a courtyard that runs off Atlantic. Food is fresh and delicious. Brewed ice hazelnut coffee was very good.

I found this little cafe accidentally as I was taking a walk in the morning. It is behind some stores in a bit of an alley way and they had a sign out in front so I decided to take a walk over and see what it was all about, while waiting for my family to wake up for breakfast.... More

Food here is healthy and delicious. Stopped by for breakfast and lunch a few times during my visit to Delray Beach. There is a reason this cafe has been around since 1978...they know what keeps patrons coming back.

Found this little restaurant as we were walking to the beach one morning. Gave it a try and feel in love. The food home cooked and delicious. Love it so much came back for lunch that same day and for breakfast before we ended our stay. Anyone stopping in Delray has to go there.

Good food isn't fast, fast food isn't good. I love this place. They always offer unique sandwich and salad options. Everything from avocado and hummus sandwiches to PB and banana. Love their salads, too. They're often a one or two man show so don't expect to show up with five people and be eating in five minutes. It's worth the... More

For the price, not that great. Waited to be acknowledged for a few, and I'm pretty mellow with small places. Took awhile, pretty good food, and I am just not excited about paper plates and plastic utensils at this price.
