A La Folie, 516 Espanola Way
So much has been written about Miami Beach’s Espanola Way… Tucked away from the heavy pedestrian traffic on Lincoln Road and the party scene of Washington Avenue, Espanola Way is quaint but gritty, picturesque yet terminally bohemian right down to its peach-colored paint. A genericcialis-rxtopstore.com La Folie is located on the quiet end of this bustling street; it is a tiny bistro that offers more than 30 varieties of crepes, as well as sandwiches, salads, and wine. Very French and very casual, the décor and hospitality are unforgettable. If you’re lucky, the local kitten will sit next to you as you enjoy the best iced coffee ever. – Check them out at –
