This small French bistro located in the heart of downtown Miami is reminiscent of a small Parisian café. It has everything from café tables on the sidewalk to fast-moving waiters. Sip your morning coffee with pan chocolate ($2), or if you are an egg person, go for the breakfast crepe ($7). This is one of the few restaurants in town where you can enjoy a savory crepe ($7.50) stuffed with all sorts of meats and cheeses, such as the paysanne, filled with chicken breast, ham, Swiss cheese, and Dijon mustard. For the less carnivorous customer, the la jardinière is a sure bet, with mushrooms, spinach, scallions, and Swiss cheese. Café Bastille also offers a wide range of sweet crepes, overflowing with Nutella ($5) or dulce de leche ($5). There's also the traditionnelle ($4), made with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon or lemon. In addition to the extensive crepe menu, the restaurant offers more traditional bistro fare such as escargots ($8.50), Niçoise salad ($8.50), steak-frites ($16), and moules marinières ($13). Don't be fooled by the simple decor and brightly colored front counter — the dishes served from this tiny kitchen are big in French flavor.
