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.

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?

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.

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!

If you’re a big fan of some hearty omelets and home fries, you’re going to absolutely love George’s on Sunset. It’s also a party each weekend, with the spot playing loud music and even spinning a disco ball around while you brunch. Here, you can find tuna and avocado tartare, homemade crab cakes, a warm goat cheese and pesto crostini salad, penne pasta with wild mushrooms, and even a goat cheese and tomato omelet. What’s great about George’s is that you can either go with your classics, such as eggs and pancakes, or try something new and exciting, including roasted salmon and Moroccan couscous.

Try the open-faced biscuit with sausage gravy and hash browns, and wash it all down with some orange juice.

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!

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.

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!
