our story

our story

Our story began over 30 years ago when our founder; Mario Laufer decided to venture into the restaurant business. It was not an easy start and after many failed businesses in different industries, Mario decided to go after what he was really passionate about: cooking simple and healthy dishes but with a lot of taste. After a few hit and misses, Carrot Express was born on the inside of a gas station on Alton Road in South Beach. Suddenly amongst South Beach residents a buzz started to go around... have you tried the food at the gas station on Alton Rd.? It is amazing! Since then we began a never-ending journey to provide our community with delicious and healthy food. We pride ourselves on offering a creative and extensive menu based around natural, high quality ingredients combined with a fun, comfortable and relaxed environment.

obsessed about cleanliness

I won't eat in a restaurant with filthy bathrooms. This isn't a hard call. They let you see the bathrooms.
