Conceived in 1925 and located in Miami Beach’s Art Deco District, Espanola Way was modeled after the Mediterranean villages of Spain and France and was originally built as a meeting place by Miami Beach’s wealthiest citizens. It also served as a gambling destination for bad boys like Al Capone who played at the Clay Hotel. Colorful and charming with a unique vibe, Espanola Way offers the BEST bohemian cafe in all of Miami. A La Folie serves up coffee, crêpes & other light fare with sidewalk seating. It’s authentic, relaxing and has character. Find it and indulge in their Nutella Crepes. You won’t be dissapointed! The sights, the sounds and the flavors on this slice of history are why I enjoy strolling through it.
