This laid-back sidewalk cafe is attached to Books & Books in South Beach. The menu is simple, which is a good thing on Lincoln Road, where a surprising amount of things are served in hollowed-out watermelons. Stay away from the bigger dinner plates and crack open that housewife murder mystery with an avocado toast, prosciutto panini, or one of the tasty salads.
Aura at Books & Books is permanently closed.
