• ella


ella is the fourth restaurant Michael Schwartz and The Genuine Hospitality Group bring to the Design District, the first on Miami’s mainland open early for breakfast. Named for Michael Schwartz’s eldest daughter, ella is a light and simple pop-up café in Palm Court serving breakfast, lunch and late afternoon food and drink, as well as daily specials.  Soft, sky blue lamps hang over its inside counter featuring daily there-until-they’re-gone baked items, a chalkboard menu wall to the back above an open kitchen, and lots of light washing through its two-story window façade.  Art from Craig Robin’s personal collection hangs to the south with a poem on the wall to the north.  ella seats 10 on a window-facing counter inside and 40 outside. Stop in for a freshly pulled espresso, sandwiches or daily soup special, or take a break and relax under the palm-speckled umbrellas with charcuterie, cheese and glass of rosé.
