Vizcaya Museum and Gardens Cafe Opens: The Perfect Romantic Lunch Spot in Pictures

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens has finally opened a new cafe that's been six years in the making. Last week, the food truck that served as a makeshift home to concessionaire Joy Wallace Catering was finally gone and a smiling manager, John McPhee, proudly opened the refurbished glass doors that lead into James Deering's old smoking and billiard rooms. The bright rooms house a museum cafe and gift shop full of everything from replicas of the china used in the main house to glasses with the signature pineapple on them.

But, hey, it's the food you'll come for.
