Café Papillon - Closed

530 Lincoln Road Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-673-1139

Location Description:

The menu boasts a mixture of cuisines (some decidedly Italian, while others have more of a French feel). The Italian influence is undeniable in the perfectly seasoned "bruschetta" ($8.95), and the two caprese options -- the traditional salad (tomato, mozzarella, basil, olive oil), or the sandwich version ($8.50). But don't stop in Italy, or you'll miss out on France's finest croque monsieur (grilled ham and cheese on toast), and Papillon does it right -- the bread is buttered just so, the ham is fresh, the cheese is melted but not fried, making for a mouth-watering winner sans chest clutching cramps. Dinner options include buttery steamed mussels (with French fries) for $12.50, and the light, delicious, yet filling "St. Tropez Salad" -- smoked salmon, shrimp, and cucumber in a lemon-dill dressing. If you're an Italian lover at heart then spoil yourself with the "gnocchi quattro formaggio." While these little dumplings may threaten to expand your waistline, they're well worth the weight.
