Coral Way is filled with plenty of Latin eateries, but its most recent newcomer is bucking that trend. Called Café Croissant, it serves simple French cuisine in a small, diner-type setting by the French twin brothers who used to own Le Royal in South Miami.
Open for breakfast and lunch daily, it displays a variety of house-made pastries in the front of the store that range from the namesake croissant to a healthy, whole-wheat muffin. Patrons have the option of taking their meal to-go or grabbing a seat at the massive counter inside the restaurant. The rest of the menu reads like a classic French bistro with simple offerings such as quiche lorraine, croque monsieur, omelets and a variety of sandwiches. Coffee, juices and house-made pastries like crème brûlée, fruit tarts and chocolate mousse are also on hand.
The restaurant is now open Monday to Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays until 3 p.m. at 1684 Coral Way. Call 786-717-7212 for more information.
