The Island Bistro opens this Friday, September 13, bringing Panther coffee and fresh-baked goods to Brickell Key.
The restaurant is located in the Courvoisier Center at 605 Brickell Key Dr. in the former Fabien's space, which was renovated to include a new "to go" coffee bar -- perfect for the rush of morning office-goers looking for a good caffeine fix.
The Island Bistro will offer Panther coffee exclusively, and you can get your morning beverage (or afternoon pick-me-up) in the form of an Americano ($3), espresso ($4), cortadito ($4), macchiato ($4), cappuccino ($5), or cold brew (12-ounce $4 and 16-ounce $5). To ensure the highest quality, the coffee drinks will be made and served by baristas from Panther.
Freshly baked breads, pastries, croissants, turnovers, cookies, and fresh fruit will be offered on a menu of bites that changes daily.
The Island Bistro is also taking the coffee theme one step further with Panther-coffee-rubbed steaks and coffee-infused cocktails for dinner.
Although the Island Bistro won't open until Friday, it's offering a very neighborly introduction. Beginning today, September 10, through Thursday, September 12, stop in from 7 to 11 a.m. and enjoy free mini coffees, espressos, and fresh pastries.
The Island Bistro opens at 7 a.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. Saturday, and is closed Sunday.
