Cafés, Take Out: A popular South Beach spot, this restaurant gained notoriety after the death of designer Gianni Versace — he used to come here daily.

For lulls in your people-watching, buy a book or magazine from the adjacent store to peruse as you enjoy a cup of coffee and a muffin, pastry or full morning meal.
