I had heard a ton of good things about La Centrale - and finally made it to brunch at Caffé. The staff was very friendly, the service was great and timely, and the food was really delicious. The ambiance is also really beautiful - the light and homey feel of the restaurant makes it a great spot to grab a coffee, lunch, and especially brunch - which is what we had.

We ordered the Avocado toast (which was pretty standard but had an additional layer of shredded zucchini which was a nice touch). My friend ordered the Osso Bucco Benedict and LOVED IT. My mom ordered the Hamburger and was also delighted with her choice.

Service was great - knowledgeable and friendly. Seated on time. Funny - seems like some of the most expensive real estate in Brickell - yet there were less than a dozen tables set up. My wife had the fish that was supposed to come with smashed Cauliflower - but it was substituted for potatoes (we knew cause the skin was on it. The build your own cannoli was a great idea - but the shells were stale.

We went for Sunday brunch and the food was very good. Our group ordered eggs benedict, avocado toast, pappardelle bolognese, nutella donut and a croissant filled with cream. The restaurant tables are super far apart from each other and sparse. Not sure if this is due to low demand but the restaurant felt like it lacked ambiance and there were not too many customers. All the tables inside the restaurant are round so when you are more than 2 guests, such as a party of 4, it is a very awkward table set-up to have two round tables next to each other.

What a great new spot in Brickell. Welcomed by a friendly hostess and surprised the place was packed already early morning.
Attentive service, great food and super value for money. The $20 free flow mimosa is what I was looking for on a weekend and my new favorite dish is the avocado toast with 2 poached eggs.
Highly recommend and happy to have found a new favorite place.

A bit of confusion in the reservation. Food is very good but brunch is a bit overpriced compared with other options available in Miami.

I really like the food, but I don't know why they are not consistent with their dishes. The avocado toast is supposed to have avocado, instead it has just a few slices on the side. Last time I came the toast had avocado, cheese, zucchini and the egg. This time it was missing the avocado. Why call it avocado toast? If it doesn't have avocado... Also the salad is supposed to have tomatoes and it had no tomatoes, had to ask for them. As for the cheesecake it was good but wasn't fresh, I could taste that it had been refrigerated for a while. Coffee is really good and so is the orange juice too!

Terrific casual ambience, incredible food, reasonably priced with a bottomless prosecco option for brunch. Great for a long afternoon lunch and/or celebration with friends.

We had the opportunity to be among the first o tate and enjoy the CAFE' at LA CENTRALE and everything was really amazing. Starting from the ambience (the tile Sicilian murales is simply amazing), moving on with the wine list (very carefully elected) not to mention the 'real' Italian Menu.
Definitively a place that will become very soon the new 'hot spot' in Miami.
Highly recommended.
