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.
