The Best Brunch Spots In Buena Vista, Miami

Sierra Brown

In the 1890s, Buena Vista was a small village whose founding and growth resembled Miami’s. During the Land Boom of the 1920s, the area developed into the Biltmore and Shadowlawn subdivisions. Originally home to many immigrants from Georgia and North Carolina, the neighborhood soon became popular with the owners of nearby businesses. Today Buena Vista is home to various exquisite restaurants. We count down five of the best spots for breakfast and brunch in the area.

Blackbrick’s mission is simple – to serve delicious affordable food that guests will want to return to week after week. At Blackbrick Chinese that mission is accomplished. The restaurant was one of the most anticipated openings of 2013 and has received many positive reviews. Miami New Times says ‘Blackbrick in Midtown serves the Chinese food you’ve been waiting for.’ Opening at 11:30am, with a menu that changes daily and a stylish yet playful interior, Blackbrick is the perfect place to grab a meal for brunch. Chef Hales created the menu inspired by his travels to China, his experience in New York and his collaboration with Chef Chok.

3. Angelina's Coffee & Juice

No list of the best brunch and breakfast spots in Buena Vista would be complete without a laid-back, family owned coffee shop and restaurant. At Angelina’s they prepare every dish, from artisan flatbread to vegan crepes, with care to ensure that their customers have the best dining experience possible. Everything is cooked in a special way to minimize fats. They serve casual, everyday meals made from fresh and natural ingredients from local farms to make their menu remind customers of home cooking.
