Conveniently located on Stirling Road in Hollywood, just minutes from I-95, Grand Café Sandwich Espresso Bar, a European-style cafe offers a delightful menu with coffee and blended drinks, friendly service, both indoor and outdoor seating, and a "warm" South Florida culinary experience. Founded in January 2012, the café owners and life-long friends Shay Yaakov and Meir Zafri created menu items that were based on nostalgic childhood food memories and recipes. After restaurant stints in Israel, Los Angeles and Texas, Shay and Meir moved to Miami and was instantly drawn to their current location. But most importantly, the address was the same as Shay’s birthday, 29-05. Whether it was a stroke of luck or a sign from God, the Grand Café Espresso Bar is a foodie destination, with a discernible family-style atmosphere of regular, loyal customers and a consistently delicious menu.
Your most important meal of the day starts off with the Grand Café Breakfast (two eggs any style, vegetable salad, olives, feta cheese served with bread and butter) or the Omelette Wrap (homemade pesto sauce, sliced tomatoes, egg, cheese, and avocado wrapped in a tortilla). Along with their wraps, salads, and specials, their wide selection of Jerusalem Bagel Toasts include Tuna Toast (tuna, mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, garlic dressing), and Yummy Bagel (mozzarella cheese, roasted peppers, green olives, fresh mushrooms, hard boiled egg, red onions, and homemade thousand island dressing). A unique sandwich that is served on special whole wheat bread is the Halloumi Sandwich (imported halloumi cheese, tomatoes, cream cheese, pickles, red onions).

But the real treat are the hot and cold drinks. Grand Café’s talents are their hot coffee, café latte, cappuccino, and espresso. For a fresh cold beverage, the Iced Chai Latte or the Iced White Chocolate Mocha delivers. Going to Grand Cafe beats going to franchise coffee houses as at Grand Cafe you get both great food and coffee at any time of the day. Catering services include your choice of signature salads, sandwich/bagel trays or the Grand Café specials starting at $39.95.

I had lunch there this past Sunday and was delighted. The cafe is very clean and the food is very fresh. Eating outside is a pleasure enhanced by a good selection of music. Try it, you'll like. We will be going back.
