Absolutely worst service error. I have been living in Sobe over 6 six years and occasionally (maybe 3-4 times) have been to Taste (it is near my apartment). All 3-4 times, without fail, they are so rude and customer un-friendly. Amazing. Looking at previous posts, it appears the same terrible cashier still works there. She rolls her eyes at requests and ignores you until you have to yell. Oh - they also charge you 50 cents extra for bread when you buy a sandiwch. Last time I looked, the definition of sandwich means something between two slices of bread. Ridiculous. Go spend your money at Einstein Brothers, Jimmy's Kitchen, Giardino's, Lime - anywhere else but this place.

Cons: terrible service; your clothes smell after leaving

I believe this female dog of an employee's exact words to me as I requested that a sandwich which had not been consumed nor delivered be taken off the bill "well ma'am we cannot do nothing cause we already wasted the produce it takes to make it". wtf?? I called like 2 mins. ago!! HORSE excrement <--(for lack of choice)! Each and every time that someone asks me to order food from this place there is a problem. They never want to give me a total and they huff and puff about it as if I was asking them to climb Mt. Everest backwards and blindfolded when I insist. Unbelievably bad customer service! Shameful attitude towards their customers.

Pros: average tasting food

Cons: HORRIFIC NIGHTMARE OF SERVICE

Its the only place I would buy my breafast on the beach. They have the best fresh ground coffee, plus free refills. The atmosphere inside the Cafe is just so homely, with the most friendliest employees, who have been there for years.You will allways be greeted warmly with your name, by the owner who is always present to take care of all your needs. I love the free Wi Fi and the large table at the quiet corner of the Cafe.
I always have their Protein breakfast, which is the best I have ever had and praised by the whole Miami Beach. In short , its the best Cafe on the beach.
The service improves every time I visit. The place has only got better over the years. Its the only place with the best food on the beach. Beast Muffins, Best Bagels and Best Salads and Sandwiches at affordable price.

I have gone to the Tasteless Cafe once a month for the past year and they just seem keep going downhill. I go there ( and have continued to go ) because they usually have a decent cup of coffee, ( not that hard) and free wifi. So I have stopped there infrequently to grab a cup and login to check email, and get a little computer work done. The food items are OK. However I HATE! HATE! HATE! that the prices in the menu don't seem to have any reality. Everytime I have ordered a food item it is always more than posted or on the menu and I get the excuse that they haven't reprinted the menus yet. The cashier is the rudest in town. She must have learned her customer service talents from that notorious Soup _ _ _ _ guy from Seinfeld ( City Search will not let me use the exact word). I have and seen others inform the staff that XYZ is out or missing and they ignore it or give a " When I get to it". And today when I was there I learned the final straw They have now cancelled refills on coffee. There are just too many other places that offer free wifi, coffee refills and are even nice to their customers to put up with Tasteless Classless Cafe's policies. There is even a Starbucks around the corner that now offers free wifi and free refills. AVOID AVOID AVOID I know you won't see me there anymore.

Pros: used to offer unlimited refills NOT ANYMORE!!! Own free parking lot

Cons: Rude service, mystery prices,

For the 1st I walked into this establishment. It was fine. They work like eastment beagles. No reflect on eastmant bagels. I asked what they have. The person behind the counter justed pointed and didnot help out at all. The sandwich came w/a side order. The price of the sandwich is 7.00. I got a soda. When i went to pay for my meal. It came to a total of 11.00. When I went to eat my sandwich it tasted weird. When i went to talk to the cashier. She was rude. She explained that soda and chips totaled 4.00. I was trying to explain that I didnot enjoy the sandwich. All they could was just take off what I did not like. When I asked to speak to a manager, He also gave me attituded. He was saying he was lossing money if he replaced the sandwhich. Finally after I explained am the customer. Am the one who is paying. And I even told him that the cashier is very rude. After almost 10 minutes they gave me a new sandwhich. Then when the sandwhich was finally made. The person behind the counter asked what side i had w/my sandwich, He was rude also. The only person who was nice, Was the person I asked for a bag.
So don't waste your time or money going there................Unless you like rude service.

This bakery and deli is awesome. The selection of cakes, pastries and other baked goods is fantastic. I go here to get chicken liver pate before any party. It is always fresh and tasty. My friends don't even know they are eating liver! I highly recommend.

Anyone on South Beach will be happy to tell you that the food here is absolutely delicious. I have had their food many times and never had a complaint. But today, I witnessed first hand the worst customer service & possible the RUDEST cashier I have ever dealt with. First, between the music & the customers I could barely hear what the quiet girl behind the counter was saying to me. Then, I asked for one of what was CLEARLY labeled "spinich & feta" croisants, only to be told that they were actually "ham & cheese". The quiet voiced girl then told me to "wait over there". I walked in the direction of her glance since she didn't point or give any real reference to where I should wait. Then she brings me the rest of my food, but gives me no ticket and makes no effort to cash me out. I stand there a few moments watching others cash out & thinking that I'm going to wait until the cashier girl is between customers to tell her I wasn't given a ticket when she suddenly looks up and says "Did you already pay?" I said no but before I could explain anything she says "Well, you have to stay in line!" Then turns to the man who is next in line & apologizes for having to take care of me first. I never asked her to take care of me first, & a decent cashier would never tell the customer, YOU HAVE TO STAY IN LINE without asking why. And even if there were no reason other than customer stupidity, you say "I'm so sorry. I wasn't aware you were waiting because you weren't in the line." This way the customer KNOWS he/she should stay in line next time but is not HUMILIATED in front of the rest of the customers.
In closing I would just like to say again that the food is delicious but the service was so mortifying that Taste Bakery will not receive one cent of my money ever again.

I love this place! The extensive menu has something for everyone and its a fun place to go and eat. Try out the ham and cheese croissants. You won't be disappointed. And the coffee? Oh man, this is without question the best cup of joe on South Beach.

Pros: great food

In Short
This dependable South Beach eatery thrives during the day, serving smoothies, tossed salads, wraps and sandwiches to recovering clubhoppers, as well as early-rising retirees. Offerings include the bruschetta bagel,…
