If you’re looking for the tastiest places to have brunch while you’re in Miami, look no further than these 10 spots. Consider it your breakfast bucket list, complete with bottomless mimosas, of course.

1. 94th Aero Squadron

Restaurant, American

The 94th Aero Squadron boasts a brunch buffet with hot and cold entrées. Here you can find scrambled eggs and omelets, a raw bar with oysters and shrimp cocktail, and many other warm dishes. It’s perfect for those looking to have complete and total freedom with their brunch choices. Want warm pancakes covered in syrup and whipped cream, some yogurt and berries, and then some crab legs? This judgement-free zone is the best place to do it, and it comes complete with live music and bottomless mimosas. Champagne, anyone?

Restaurant, Bar, Italian

The god of all brunches sits quietly inside of the Soho Beach House, an exclusive members-only club where most amenities are only open to hotel guests and members. However, Cecconi’s, the Italian restaurant nestled outside, is open to the public. Here, you can join in on this delicious and ritzy buffet spread, complete with steak, salmon, truffle mac and cheese, fresh fruit, pancakes and sweets, an omelet station, pasta, salad, and much, much more. Included in the price is a mimosa or bellini, but if you’re in more of a Bloody Mary mood, those are available too. The best part? You’re right on the beach, so you can hit the water (30 minutes) afterward.

3. Lulu in the Grove

Restaurant, American, Tapas

Lulu in the Grove is a wonderful, cozy, and romantic spot for you and your partner to head to for a lovely morning date. You can either sit inside if you prefer the ambiance (and A/C) or sit outside on a warm but breezy Miami morning. The menu boasts dishes like spinach feta omelets, eggs benedict, bacon waffles, and small plates like their infamous Brussels sprouts with mandarins and sweet soy sauce. You’ll also want to try one of their house-smoked salmon platters or the goat cheese croquettes with guava bbq sauce – you won’t be disappointed!

5. Jimmy's Eastside Diner

Featured in the Oscar-winning movie Moonlight, the cozy Jimmy’s Eastside Diner is adorned with colorful Tiffany lamps and serves some damn good plates of pancakes. This spot has all of your traditional favorites! Order up an omelet with ham and cheese or some blueberry hot cakes with delicious maple syrup. Looking for something heartier and savory? Try the open-faced biscuit with sausage gravy and hash browns, and wash it all down with some orange juice. Salads, sandwiches, and burgers are also available – just in case you end up getting there a little too close to lunch.

6. American Social

If you’re feeling a little fancy and wanting to go out for a delicious brunch with your girlfriends, you’ll want to head to American Social. This swanky spot has dishes like oysters, mac and cheese, mussels, and beet-cured salmon. There is also a shrimp and arugula salad, huevos rancheros, and even a crab omelet. You won’t find your typical favorites here, and if you do, they’re going to have a modern twist. Located on the water, American Social also offers a really great view.

7. Son Cubano

Restaurant, Cuban

Son Cubano is an upscale Cuban joint in Coral Gables that has a brunch with bottomless mimosas for guests; it will keep you drinking and talking all morning long with your friends. Here, you’ll find plates such as black bean dip, fresh empanadas, crab cakes, churrasco and eggs, ropa vieja, and even some spicy paella. Your favorite meal of the day just got a Latin twist, and it’s super delicious. Make sure to pair it with something from their extensive alcoholic menu, highlighting mimosas, peach bellinis, and, of course, sangria and mojitos.

8. Tap 42

Hands down one of the tastiest brunches around (and full of alcohol), Tap 42 won’t give you your typical brunch plates. Instead, you’ll get to enjoy bacon and sweet corn guacamole, crispy Asian calamari, Chicago-style steak and eggs, and white chocolate strawberry pancakes. If you’re super hungry and needing something a little heartier, check out the “Drunken Goat” burger, complete with a patty made of lamb and beef, smothered with whipped goat cheese, arugula, tomato, raspberry jam, and dijonnaise. Don’t forget to pair it with an ice-cold glass of beer. Remember, you’re here to relax!

9. Peacock Garden Cafe

Cafe, Restaurant, American

Peacock Garden Cafe sits in a beautiful, lush floral paradise, just steps away from CocoWalk in Coconut Grove. The menu has delicious dishes like crab cakes benedict, lox and bagel, fresh pancake stacks, and lobster omelets. You can also find pecan waffles and fruit salad on the menu, and you can get a mimosa, glass of wine, or a Blood Mary to wash it all down. If you’re not in a day drinking kind of mood, try the homemade lemonade. Round up a group of friends, or head out with your partner for a cute little date.

10. Glass and Vine

Restaurant, American

The beautiful Glass and Vine has a gourmet brunch menu offering items like applewood smoked bacon topped with smoked guava and coffee salt; wood oven-baked eggs; and coquito French toast. Most all of the items listed are healthy, so it’s a great spot if you’re one who normally doesn’t like fried, fattening foods. Other menu items include granola with cashews, grains, seeds, dried fruit, and coconut-lime yogurt, and watermelon salad with lime crema, cojita cheese, cilantro, and jalapeño. Yum!
