Considering the pleasant weather nine months out of the year, I've always felt that Miami could do so much better when it comes to outdoor cafes. I don't deny that yes, there are some decent Starbucks with outdoor seating, but really Miami? Are we going to let a bunch of corporate jocks tell us how to use your weather best? Sadly, in most cases it turns out that the corporations are quite keen, but if you keep your eye out, you'll find some local gems. Cafe Demetrio should certainly be on your list if you know what's best. Blocks from the Miracle Mile, it's a great place to end a leisurely stroll in and around downtown Coral Gables. The cold drinks can only be described as decadent, but immensely satisfying (albeit they come at Starbucks prices). And of course the best part of Cafe Demetrio is the outdoor patio. Chess players at one corner, web surfers at another, all enjoying the shade from the canopy trees and lush surroundings. The patio isn't huge, but it is a great place to sit and relax for a while so long as it doesn't get too busy.
