A la Folie is a touch of Paris in Miami. There is a side garden for dinner and a street side cafe for breakfast and lunch. The big bowls of cafe au lait, French pastries and hot crepes made for a wonderful romantic morning breakfast.

I make it a point to come here every time I visit South Beach. I always try to have something different and every time I am amazed! Bonus: no tourists!

This place is AMAZING. It had a very romantic garden away from the over the top touristic restaurants at Espenola way. And then there was the food.. as a European I know french food well and this was definitely classic french. So good. Must try...More

this lovely little cafe at the end of Espanola Way is as close to a nice little French brasserie/creperie as you'll get outside Europe. Nice atmosphere, lovely light basic French cooking (crepes great!) and wine. Lovely.

Prepare to go very French. Staff a little bit lazy.. Very nice garden outside the restaurant. We had pancake and sallad. Very tasty and nice! It's a little bit off the beaten track. Peace and calm!

Stumbled on this place with a colleague. I grew up in France and love home cooking - not fancy 5 Star fusion type French. I wasn’t disappointed! Had a salad to start and tartiflette for the main course and both were really good! My colleague...More

Very romantic quaint restaurant on a quite oasis in a chaotic district of south Beach. European type of service, slow but pleasant, food authentic French! A diamond in the rough, enjoy and savor the ambiance.

Actually everywhere in Miami restaurants charging gratuity for a service due very small paycheck of the servers. Average server salary is around $3 per hot after tax. So it's ok if service includes 18%. Good luck.

Yes. All the savory crepes are gluten free. Abd we the sweet crepes can be made as well with "gluten free" savory batter.
