Ten Best Miami Brunches

The debate over whether the best meal of the day is lunch or breakfast has been going on for millennia. Intense battles have broken out over the issue. But one day, a peaceful being came up with a compromise for the rivaling sides. The settlement was "brunch," a perfect middleman between the morning pleasures of bacon and waffles, and the afternoon delights of a steak sandwich au jus.

Brunch is for the man who cannot decide whether he prefers pancakes or a porterhouse on his plate.

Basically, it's the best solution ever, and Miami has some fabulous options.

A group of friends can enjoy a full brunch spread, including cocktails, for $30 a person. Everyone can drink as they please for an hour and a half. The brunch menu consists of Mexican-inspired regulars such as chilaquiles, enchiladas, huevos rancheros, all kinds of taco varieties, ceviches, and freshly prepared guacamole. It's the bento box of Miami brunches -- everything you want in a perfect little package.

The outdoor terrace is half the reason we frequent Morgans. The other half is the brunch menu. It's all the regular stuff you can expect for brunch -- eggs ($10), sandwiches (about $12), waffles ($8), and the like. But well-executed simplicity can be better than something adventurous. We prefer to end every visit with the daily bread pudding ($10). And for the record, yes, you should ask why they call it the voluptuous grilled cheese ($12), because we're not spoiling it.

Mercadito is closed and none of us shall mourn it, it was MEDIOCRE at best, so why does this link only show us a closed restaurant and #9? DO better or get off my page.

This conversation cracked me up because it's the same in every city. There are old-school, well loved diners that never get written about and plenty of new 'hipster' ones that do. It's just a fact of urban life.

Carlos. ^^^ I hate to say it, but New Times really only seems to cater to the overly pretentious crowd these days.
