I love this bagel place in Kendall! I discovered it only a couple years ago and I'm so happy I did. Its located om 117th avenue in the small plaza just SW of the Red Lobster on Kendall Drive. Also in this plaza is Giardino Salads. Parking can be impossible at times but I've never given up and left. I love coming here on weekends when the place is packed with regulars and the sounds of their conversations amongst eachother and with the owner fill the tiny room. It gives Miami that small town feel even if just for a morning. I enjoy that very much. The staff is like family there. They are pretty friendly and quick with your order. Order at the counter and they'll bring it to your table. If the place is empty enough I'll just wait there for it. Otherwise I sit down to get out of the way. Sometimes I sit outside because anyone who knows me knows I love outdoor seating! They serve bagels, bagel sandwiches, deli saNdwiches (deli meats sliced to order) eggs prepared any way, bacon and nova... of course. Their cream cheeses and butters are mixed there by them and they serve them on the side by default. This is perfect for me because that's the way I normally order it anywhere I go since I don't like the schmears to melt. My favorite bagels here are Egg and Cinnamon Raisin. Their Honey Walnut cream cheese has big pieces of walnuts and is perfectly sweet on either. Though the Egg bagel tastes extra delicious with regular butter. They offer brewed coffee, espresso, Natalie's O.J. and in 2 sizes, canned sodas including Dr. Browns. For dessert they have a cake stand on the counter that's always filled with Rugelach (a Jewish pastry usually made of cream cheese and filled with walnuts, chocolate or fruit). They also sell their spreads/schmears in tubs for you to take home.
The bagel express is a little hole in the wall in a small strip mall. Its a little pricey but, worth it. The bagels are made from scratch and baked fresh daily. They offer a variety of bagels (pumpernickel, sesame, egg, poppy seed, garlic, salt, cinnamon, plain etc). In additon, for the people that are on diets or looking to be a little healthier there's whole wheat and eight-grain available with your choice of regular or low-fat cream cheese. they also offer a variety of drinks from freshly squeezed orange juice, to Dr Brown's sodas which are lightly carbonated and not too sweet.
I swear these bagels have crack in them and if this place was anywhere closer to my house i might seriously need an intervention. Back in highschool there was the Bagel Cart supplying students with the most divine bagels. These bagels were so good, students skipped the free breakfast in the cafeteria and paid to eat these bagels. So good teachers would give students hall passes to make a bagel runs during class! Now having the connections i had with the activities director i soon found out who was supplying these "crack bagels"- Bagel Express. I vowed when i had a car, or had someone willing to take me i would go to this wonderful bagel mecca to pay my homage. I went in and i had to be in heaven, because in an instant i traveled back to my home of my NY bagel shop and deli. I went up ordered a plain bagel with cream cheese, and then the most wonderful words came out of the bagel angel's mouth. "Would you like that toasted?". Toasted? i had never thought of toasting this delicious creation before because i had never had the means. I quickly answered "sure" and a minute later it was ready. It was different from the many bagels i had in school; this one was even better. I bit into the warm chewy crisp bagel and i was sure i was in heaven, bagel heaven. I had to be because no where else in miami had i had a bagel this good. Thank you Bagel express for sharing your love of bagels with me and the world!! [Note: i guess i should mention the details on what they have: different flavors of bagels, breakfast sandwiches, light and regular cream cheese, and your typical bagel stuffs, just way better than your typical bagel place.]

I used to come here a lot when I was studying at Miami Dade. I recently went back for a post work out meal and was worried that maybe the quality may have gone down since my last visit. I was so relieved when I bit into my bagel this morning and it was just as good as I remembered. The bagels here are fresh and so soft! I had mine with eggs and cheese inside. The thing was huge I don't think I can eat again 'till dinner after that. The staff are friendly fast. They talk to you, take your order and have you munching down on that bagel faster than you can say Philadelphia! So when faced with the alternatives that this shopping center has to offer my first choice will always be these outrageous bagels!
Unfortunately.... I walked in for an egg sandwich and walked out with a nightmare! Let me start by first saying I am a big fan of the egg special sandwich and have never before had any issues thith this establishment. And just wanted to post my experiencebecause of how unsettled I left feeling. Monday morning,a very nice girl takes my order for an EGG SPECIAL on a salt bagel and a coffee. Waited for my order, left the store and drove to work. Upon opening my sandwich theres no egg. OK, so people make mistakes. Annoyed but starving I drive back to the location and ask for a manager. And this is where the nightmare begins! The woman behind the counter that claimed to be the manager asks what it is I need. I explain how I was just there and placed this EGG special order but there was no egg. This so called managers response to me was "Well I didnt take this order!" I then look at her, shocked at her "managing/customer service skills/response" and explain that I never said she did! It seems she took the wrong order to heart and proceeds to tell me i should calm down that its just a sandwich! Excuse me? I couldnt believe how this so called manager was handeling this scenario and could I could care less about my sandwich at this point. I feel like I went in there level headed and the acting manager took such offense to my complaint that she handled it horribly. She then elevates her voice and spews uneducated comments about how they are not slaves there and she doesnt have to do anything i say! Lol, no wait, If u have given bad service and the customer requests the money back are u 1,a slave...uh no and 2, arent u supposed to give them the refund?? Seeing myself lose control I step back and wait for her to process the refund on my card all while she is talking badly about me and the scenario to whomever she can, customers and staff included. Basically taunting me as I sit and wait. I was in aww of how the situation was handled. She tells me she cant refund my card so I said even better then give me the cash. She then says she needs to check her records and i remind her I handed her the receipt with my card originally. This woman was a mess.I wanted out of there as bad as she wanted me out of there and she was so frazzled that she continued to make the matter worse. She then throws my money across the counter at me and continues yelling irradically at me as I walked out the door. Best part... I can never go back. I dont think thats going top be an issue after this experience. I too am in customer service in a managerial position and have never witnessed such poor service and irate reaction to a simple complaint. Clearly this woman should not b allowed to work with the public. It was an Unfortunate start to a Monday.
Great customer service! Go see Robert! Tell him Ozzy sent you!

I'm a pizza lover and wow what a great find. It's clean, affordable, and offers excellent service. However, above all, is their yummy pizza that makes it great ! I'm a lover of pepperoni pizza, it's my favorite, and I was not disappointed, can't wait to go back for some more. I'm definitely going back with some friends and sample the basil pizza, it looked so good! I highly recommend Flipping Pizza, you will not be disappointed!
We are so happy we decided to try this place out! Wings are great, beer on tap is COLD. Service was wonderful. Pizza is also very good we had the brooklyn and pepperoni both were good. Just what was needed to compliment the area! Try it out.
So I came in for a few slices and while my pizza was ok, it wasn't as good as I would've liked. The group next to me got a whole pizza that looked a lot better. I think if you order a whole pizza, whether to go or to eat in, its better than to get pizza by the slice which is ruined a bit when re-heated.

I enjoyed trying their food. I tried the kufta platter and it was good. Tasty and a very generous portions. Not the cheapest of fast casual restaurants but still good.
I've been to this place twice already. First of all, it's pretty pricey for being a franchise. Second, they don't serve falafels, BIG MISTAKE! Third, the hummus is alright, but I've tasted better. On the positve side, I'm pretty satisfied with the way the food was prepared, the meat it always cooked good, so far I've tried both Chicken and Beef. The service is always very good and the gentlemen at the register is very friendly. I'll definitely go back....even though they don't have falafels.......
I only ate 3 percent of my veggie melt. The veggies were so greasy and bland. It had so much cheese in it that it made my nauseous.

Love this place.. I love the pad thai noodles and the sushi is top notch!! The service was great and everyone was so nice and helpful. Its nice to walk into a restaurant and not have to wait and hour to be seated, plus the food is fresh and really good.
I Love this place Jen and the rest of her staff make you feel like family fresh sushi and the best fried rice anywhere
I've been coming here for a very long time. The best thing is the surprise roll. The chefs really go out of their way to create a unique roll every time. I feel like some of the best rolls I've had have been surprise rolls. My second favorite thing to eat here is the special fried rice, it's a great portion which makes it great to share and tastes great.

Reviews:
This place is garbage! After buying a extra large pizza for my family I was told buying a 2 liter of soda was not allowed. Only if I had to it go because they didn't want to give me cups for it. Why you might ask? Because they wanted to cram down my throat buying individual cups for everyone so they could make more money. Wow this place might as well have begged for money if they're hurting so bad for it. Not to mention they're food is WAY over priced for the quality of it. The staff obviously is less than mediocre in they're customer service. I buy the 2 liter of soda and I don't even know if I dealt with the manager or owner but they were insistent they didn't want to give me cups for the soda I had just bought from them!! I cannot stress enough how much this place sucks. You want awesome pizza, better quality and great family style treatment, check out Vesuvios a couple of miles west of this dump.
I've been coming here since I was a kid. When there use to be an AMC theatre instead of a 24 Hour Fitness center. Plenty of memories this tiny pizza joint has given me. A little overpriced for a slice of pizza, but if you're looking for a quick bite, it'll do. Fresh and yummy!
This pizza place is located in the town and country mall in Kendall right off of the Turnpike. It seemed like a cool spot and the counter top / bar was deifnitly unique and an eye catcher. /Start Rant Although the locale was great (1 star for venue), the pizza was not. Also, the price was ridiculously expensive. Here is a quick summary of my meal: Two slices of cheese and two sodas = $10.95. Doing basic math here, am I really paying 2.50 per slice and 2.50 per soda???? Not to mention that the slices were just OK and nothing to die for and definitely nothing near a Casolas sized slice so I would say average at best. (Sorry to reference another pizza joint in my review but I had to put some perspective in here). 1 star for venue, and 1 star for service, no stars on the pizza and no stars for the price. If I do ever make it back to Two Brothers, I will definitely try something else off of the menu since I see many other great reviews for other things that are not pizza such as the subs and deserts. Considering myself a Pizza aficionado (long story) I would recommend you look elsewhere for Pizza.

Great healthy pizza... Unlike regular pizza from a chain restaurant i.e. pizza hut, papa johns, dominoes, or even the corner pizzaria's like in NYC/ or the north east in general this pizza doesn't weigh you down with grease. Thier pizza's are good & tasty the crust is made with weigh protein. At first I had second thoughts about the taste but now I buy pizza from them a couple times a month. You won't be disappointed. They offer a variety of different pizza. One bad draw s medium pie will only feed two people at best in my opinion.
If you are looking for a place to grab a quick bite in the east Kendall area and you like to eat pizza, then this is the place. Their pizza is amazing considering that the crust is wheat. I went there for lunch and had their lunch special of two slices and a drink. I had just plain cheese and first of all was pleasantly surprise at the size of the slices. The taste was also good and you definitely can't beat the price of $4.99. Anyways, pizza is my favorite comfort food and I'm always looking for places that serve a good slice or pie, and this is definitely a place I will be coming back to.
I was looking to order some pizza and didn't want to order from your usual Pizza Hut or Papa Johns. I found this place from yelp and decided to give it a try. I ordered a medium cheese pizza, a mushroom pizza, breadsticks and a 2 liter for about 30 bucks. The driver called me bc he couldn't find us, so I gave him directions and he arrived promptly. We ended up ordering again the next day (we don't cook in the weekends!) this time a mushroom pizza again, the turkey meatball appetizer, and the cookies. We were very pleased. The pizza was really good and so were the breadsticks, the meatballs, everything. Lady on the phone was nice too and you can order online which is def a plus!

Patacon Pisa’o

13630 SW 120th St,Unit 216
Kendall, 33186
Reviews:
This place is a really nice change of pace. The "PATACON" is a whole or two plantains, smashed, flattened and fried into a boat. In it you have your choice of several options to pack it with- Rice, beans & steak, Colombian "Plato Paisa" fare (fried egg, pork cracklins, red beans, rice and stewed meat), seafood... All sorts of options. Anything from their menu is really good. They're Colombian Coconut like drink is ridiculously good. I mean stupid good. For the food- this place deserves 5 stars. So what is preventing it? The service... Wait staff seem lifeless at times. You must repeat your order a few times because they may find new ways for you to try new food without your knowledge. I've been here 6-7 times, and I order the PATACON in some variety. My wife orders different things and she ends up missing items or wrong orders altogether. Such a same. This place could compete with some of the best places on this side of town if it wasn't for the ok service. The food is soooo good though. Can't fault the chef for the wait staff. So run and try this place out. You'll be happy you did, just be patient with your server.
Chain Colombian restaurant located in Kendall. Not a bad place for a quick and reasonable meal. The empanadas are OK, mostly potato filling and little meat. The shell on this visit was soggy. The perfect empanadas have crispy shell and seasoned filling with plenty of meat, so these fail on that measure. The other signature Colombian dish is the Plato Paisa is good, but portions have been shrinking. Service was good on this visit. Seems like a recent change of management has occurred. The last manager I use to see was obnoxious and walked around like he was mad. Their signature Patacon Pisao was very good, crispy and delicious served with meat in mushroom sauce.
It was really good!i enjoyed my sopa de mariscos .filled with lots of seafood.the air was king as we waited on a Sunday when there was no seating left but the waiter were very friendly and owner was in touch with the people.so far it was worth the wait.

Crepe Maker

Dadeland Mall
Kendall, 33156
Reviews:
Pretty standard crepe maker place, can come here for a light snack if you're tired of roaming Dadeland and want to avoid the crowd at the food court. There's a couple tables for 2-3 people you can sit at with your friend/date, enjoy your crepe and people watch. Took about 5 minutes for them to make our steak Milanese. Overall enjoyable experience.
I have always been a Crepe Maker fan and I'm quite delighted to see that there's one in the mall! It's a great place to grab a quick fresh bite. I like to grab a chicken Cesar crepe and a Nutella solo crepe. The regular size crepes are really filling so sometimes I decide to just get the small. Great service, you get to see them make it on the spot, and nice seating area after a day at the mall.
I'm a crepe fanatic and know how they're made properly... This place did not get it right. Crepe wasn't fresh at all ... 2 stars for a small amount of effort.
