If you want a “Pan con Bistec” in Hialeah for breakfast, lunch or even at 3 AM, it can easily be found in a heartbeat, but if you want a fresh salad, well, it’s really slim pickings out there.
Thanks to our neighbor, Miami Lakes, we have a few greener choices up there but none more beloved than the charming Beverly Hills Cafe. For over 30 years they have been serving their hearty salads and soups. The outside was recently renovated, so I was worried they had changed their iconic 80’s look but thankfully it’s still the same inside. It looks like a Miami Vice fan decorated the restaurant, I actually love it, gives the place a lot of character. The outside patio is modern though and dog friendly. Their menu is quite varied but their strongest dishes are their salads and soups, they boast over 40 different kinds of salads made on the spot with 15 kinds of salad dressings as well.
Beverly Hills Cafe is truly a Miami Lakes institution, loved all locals and many Hialeah residents as well since there is really nothing quite like this place in our town.
