Fodor's Expert Review Icebox Cafe

$$ South Beach Modern American

This unassuming café, formerly off a Lincoln Road side street, was propelled into superstardom after Oprah Winfrey called the café's sweets the “greatest cakes in America” back in her daytime days. Now, in a larger space on South Beach's West End, Icebox continues to dish out its much buzzed-about cakes, as well as an ever-changing menu of breakfast, lunch, and dinner best described as pan-American fusion. Other than the calorie-rich desserts, most of the food at Icebox errs on the side of healthful, with fabulous salads like the avocado-and-seed salad, and savory mains like the organic rotisserie chicken in a sherry-vinegar reduction. The restaurant has become a local institution, packed day and night with Miami's glitterati, trendsetters, and tourists.
