Soyka, Restaurant & Lounge, opened its doors to a doubting public in the spring of 1999. Mr. Soyka ( of the famous Ocean Drive News Café ) originally purchased the building to house his vintage car collection, never dreaming of opening yet another restaurant or cafe. But before all of the cars had even found their way to their new home, Mark decided to open his namesake restaurant. With nothing in the area that catered to the locals and the VIP of the business and government community downtown, Soyka was packed the day it opened its doors and remains so to this very day. With the most unique, casual ambiance and comfort dining in all of Miami, Soyka bring guests back, many even several times a week, truly making it their dining room away from home.
