The husband and wife team who run Café Demetrio call it Coral Gables' oldest coffee house, and offer guests a place to enjoy Florida weather and European-style coffee drinks. Visit for a variety of coffee drinks, pastries, lunch options, desserts, and maybe even a glass of red wine on the outdoor patio.
Opened in 1997, this place claims to be the 'hood’s original coffeehouse. That’s probably true, at least in terms of locally-owned spots. (One of the first Miami Starbucks locations debuted on Miracle Mile that same year.) Order a Cafe Demetrio, its version of the cortadito, head straight to the outdoor, palm tree-covered courtyard, and... um, drink your coffee, obviously.
