Coral Gables was one of the first planned communities, and prefigured the development of the gated community and the homeowners association. It is infamous for its strict zoning regulations. The city was developed by George Merrick during the Florida land boom of the 1920s. The city’s architecture is almost entirely Mediterranean Revival style, including the Coral Gables Congregational Church, donated by Merrick. The domed, Catholic Church of the Little Flower was built somewhat later, in a similar Spanish Renaissance style. By 1926, the city covered 10,000 acres (4,000 ha) and had netted $150 million in sales, with over $100 million spent on development.

Love this place. The pizza is really good and the breakfast is equally good. Great neighborhood spot.

Had my wedding in the Atrium room. This place is absolutely gorgeous. The staff is friendly and patient. The food is AMAZING! A little pricey for some but in my opinion is was worth every penny. Lissette the event coordinator took care in my timeline and my vendors . She is a sweetheart and she responds to emails/phone calls immediately. I definitively was relaxed and was able to enjoy my big day. I have no regrets.

Old ownership was much nicer then the current one, the towel washing machine is always broken, the gym, sauna and pool are nice but the leadership needs to pick up the effort.
