Description: Nearly a year after closing its Collins Avenue location, the iconic 40-year-old Cuban cafe alights on Alton Road, settling into a smaller SoBe space with blue-and-black tiled floors and its signature walk-up window where locals get their morning cafecito fix. The menu includes breakfast staples like fried eggs and bacon, plus classics like Cubano Sandwich and churrasco (grilled beef) that never grow old.

We stayed in apartments right across the street and got our morning coffee, breakfasts, and snacks all weekend here. We loved the walk up window for quick coffee and snack. And we loved eating inside, too - breakfast and snacks. The mamay shake is SO good! And the fresh squeezed juices rock - we tried both mango and orange. They were both fresh and delicious. Their Cuban coffees are so awesome that I drank them black each time. I also tried their cafe con leche - it was good, but a few of my friends got theirs too sweet, so ask them to go easy on the sugar if you don't want it overly sweet. Their Cuban sandwiches are AMAZING! We loved them the traditional way as well as with the Cuban sweet bread. I got the Cuban french toast a bunch and loved it each time - it wasn't too sweet yet still didn't need any syrup. This restaurant, and the people watching, were one of the best things about where we stayed!

A group of us were in South Beach for the weekend and we ate breakfast at this café every morning. The food was pretty good & very inexpensive. A welcome surprise from the expensive restaurants along Ocean Dr. This place is about 2 blocks from Ocean; just a few minutes walk. Even when it was busy, they were able to quickly accommodate our large group. We will return!

My entire family loves loves loves David's cafe, locals abound and there is always served , the best coffee I have ever had in my life. I am not sure how they do it but it is excellent. We all enjoy the Cuban sandwhiches and great rice and beans. There are yummy pastries to take home, and we return again and again. Never dissapointed.

Nice alternative to get away from Ocean Blvd. overpriced restaurants. Food is good and service is quick, and friendly. Not a lot of ambiance, but it's very reasonable. Convenient to the Collins Avenue hotels.
