The Unemployed Chef (Coral Gables)

Posted on January 13th, 2014 · American Breakfast Coral Gables Fast Food

***** The Unemployed Chef, 2030 South Douglas Road, Coral Gables, Florida 33134, (305) 441-2433.

For our purposes…we’re gonna call The Unemployed Chef-a fast food (order at/pickup at the counter) “American” joint…handful of tables–breakfast stuff, salads, personal pizzas, burgers, sandwiches/wraps/subs. You can check menu/prices at

First let Jeff Eats get this off his chest, I think that the joint’s name s-u-c-k-s. Too cute for my taste, but since I got no skin in this game, the owners can call the joint whatever they -like. I’m thinking a name like Gables’ Luncheonette, or SB Luncheonette (sisters Sandy and Barbara are the owners)—has so much more pizzaz, but that’s just me.


The Unemployed Chef is an absolutely dynamite breakfast/lunch joint…or shall I say luncheonette?

A recent outing had Jeff Eats “trying” Caesar salad ($4.69), 2 black angus beef sliders/with french fries ($5.29), 10″ plain thin crust pizza ($6.99), philly cheese steak hoagie ($6.69) and I gotta tell you–this joint turns out some really delicious food.

No matter what Sandy and Barbara call it, this joint is a homerun.

The Unemployed Chef is open Monday-Friday 8am-4pm, closed Saturday & Sunday.

    I enjoy your blog. I have a suggestion for your consideration.

    From time to time you report on a place that you feel is terrific/dynamite/fantastic etc. It would be great to have easy access on your site to a list of places you have recently reported on that you rate as this good. For example, it would be helpful to be able to search for and find a list of places reviewed by you within the last 2 years that were/are this good. No doubt one could come up with ways to search within the top X list but that is for later perhaps.

    Best wishes

    I see that you placed my e-mail to you as an entry under the Unemployed Chef (Coral Gables) review. Originally, when I wrote to you I was thinking of it as a private side-communication. I don’t mind it being published but perhaps it would be better and more likely to get attention if it was a subject in its own right and not submerged underneath a review that maybe only few of your readers may look at.

    Best wishes
