Cafe @ Books & Books


Bookstore/cafe in the Lincoln Road Mall, Miami Beach.

What we had:

I had the smoked chicken/sauteed onion/goat cheese/chevre panini with mixed greens and guava bbq sauce. This was a really good sandwich. The chicken was delicately smoked--almost with a pork taste--and the ooey gooey cheese was a great counterpoint to the crusty, nice-quality ciabatta. The greens were nicely dressed.

My DH had a burger cooked medium. The beef quality was nice and the cheese was well done. Same great ciabatta with fries.

The meal also came with a starter--a really nice black bean hummous with nice, sharp garlic and light & airy crackers. The tropical tea was spot-on as well. Exactly what we needed on a day where the heat index crept up close to 100.


As everywhere in the Lincoln Road mall, this is a great place for people-watching and hanging out on a Saturday afternoon.

Not bad.
