Miami's Best Brunch Spots from SoBe to Coral Gables

Brunch has become a time-honored tradition for many Miami locals. It's not uncommon to hear families making weekend brunch a regular event, or to know a group of girlfriends that always gather over mimosas and pancakes to swap war stories about the previous night's events.

Many restaurants already knew that brunch would be a hit ages ago, while others are just now coming to their senses as to what a grand idea this is. Places that once only opened lunch and dinner are now serving eggs benedict and bellinis on the weekends, and so we knew we had to compile a list of the best of the best for our readers.

There are establishments whose brunch reputation precedes them, like Greenstreet Cafe in Coconut Grove, an eatery known for its incredible goat cheese omelets and friendly attitude toward accompanying pets. 

There are also some unexpected restaurants on this list, like the Fontainbleau's own Hakkasan, a Cantonese fine-dining experience with an outstanding dim sum brunch that caters to a well-refined palate.

SoBe local's favorite Yardbird also made our list with its unmatched chicken and waffles (hello, bourbon maple syrup!) and its reputation for being one of the hippest eateries in town.

Whether you're looking for recommendations or are simply curious as to whose scrambled eggs stole our hearts, you'll find it all in this list.
