Cafeina Restaurant Review

: Located in emerging Wynwood, a working-class neighborhood of small residences and big warehouses (many now inhabited by cutting-edge artists), this lounge/café/art gallery complex was the first venue in the area to have a full liquor license when it opened late in 2009. Not surprisingly, especially since DJ’d music makes the place feel more like a nightclub than a restaurant, many more patrons come here for cocktails than for cuisine---unless you count the signature café con leche martini as food. The milkshake-thick mix of coffee-infused vodka, Amarula liqueur, crème de cacao and cinnamon is, actually, as much dessert as drink. But it would be a mistake to miss the limited but very tasty global tapas, especially fat, almost filler-free crab cakes. The most substantial, and fun, food comes at Sundays' "Brunch 'n' Bazaar," which combines two distinctly different menus (one healthful, the other sinfully indulgent) with an open-air market.
