Taco Bell's holy trinity of breakfast.
It's here. Taco Bell's much-anticipated breakfast arrived early this morning, with fans already freaking out over the fast-food chain's variety of morning meal offerings.

Of course, the company is pushing the hype, giving away special Taco Bell breakfast phones to a select group of rabid followers and offering prizes to people who eat their breakfast and tweet a picture by 11 a.m. today.

Meet your new running buddy.
Running is one of the most popular sports in the United States, with road races being one of the fastest-growing sports-related weekend pastimes.

According to Running USA's State of the Sport report, the number of running events in the United States in 2012 totaled an astounding 26,370, with 15,534,000 finishers.

Road races, once considered the domain of the professional athlete or the deranged, are more popular than ever, thanks to race directors hosting events catered to just about every preference and interest. There are races that allow you to run in technicolor, play in mud, avoid zombies, and mingle with Disney characters. And now, ladies and gentlemen, you can run with bacon.

Who doesn't want dumplings for breakfast?
SushiSamba has gone from SoBe's beaches-and-babes party scene to a more formal affair with the opening of a seventh location worldwide in Coral Gables at the Westin Colonnade. For those who work, live, or play in Coral Gables, mornings just got a little brighter with the introduction of the first SushiSamba breakfast menu.

We know what you're thinking: Sushi for breakfast? But you're wrong. You'll get not only raw fish offerings but also juice and batidos, formulated and customized for you. Who says 7 a.m. is too early to be a mixologist? Short Order recently sampled some of the breakfast items.

Tongue & Cheek's Weekend Brunch: Fire in the Hole Bloodys and Free Coffee For Everyone

Lemon ricotta pancakes for brunch.
It's been well established that Miamians love brunch, but to be perfectly honest, sometimes those $75 buffets can be intimidating. After all, how many house-made croissants can you eat (or stuff into your handbag for later) to justify the price tag? Sure, they're great for special occasions, but what about the rest of us who spend every weekend morning at a restaurant? We're not made of gold, after all.

Tongue & Cheek's Jamie DeRosa figured locals need a place where they can get a solid brunch (with a few killer bloody marys) without breaking the bank. His restaurant's weekend brunch, starting June 1, will be served every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. and feature well-priced ala carte items; freshly baked pastries, bloody marys, and free coffee...for everyone. Everyone?

New Year's Day 2013: A Miami Brunch Guide

Categories: Breakfast

Yardbird's glorious Bloody Mary
January 1st: the only day of the year when the government sanctions our hangovers with paid time off. After overindulging in bottles of cheap champagne and a river of Red Bull vodkas, there's nothing better than an oversized midday meal to soothe your aching head and rumbling tummy.

And if your cranky, sunglassed dining companion starts ruining your morning by bitching about her ill-fated weight loss resolution - you have our permission to plug her pie hole with a scrumptious muffin.

Happy New Year.

North Miami Beach's Half-Century Old Ham & Eggery Closing

Last call coming soon.

In about a month, the Ham and Eggery, the kitschy, barnlike breakfast spot open 24 hours in

North Miami Beach will close its doors after 47 years.

New Times named it the best breakfast joint in 1992, and not much has changed since. There are nearly two dozen omelet options, and a variety of classic southern breakfasts -- everything from biscuits and sausage grave to creamed chipped beef -- all on the cheap. Burgers are served during the daytime and if they're famous for anything it's the waffle or French toast sandwich, with eggs and bacon sandwiched in between the breakfast starch.

Owner Akbar Malik says he's retiring and selling the property. One interested buyer, he adds, is a dollar store. The changeover might not be a huge stretch for the restaurant, which has always been filled with a variety of bric-a-brac.

Whisk's Brendan Connor Pairs With Michael Schwartz's Harry's Pizzeria To Showcase Florida Beer

In a never-ending quest to rid their space of the bad aura left by the departed Pizza Volante, the good folks of Michael Schwartz's Genuine Hospitality Group and Harry's Pizzeria are hosting a special event showcasing the benefits of eating local in Florida.

Truthfully we're nearly mango-ed out, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the 'local' part of this project will be handled by Brendan Connor, chef and owner of Whisk Gourmet Food & Catering in South Miami, who will be cooking up an a la carte menu paired with craft beers from Florida breweries.

"We are trying to create awareness locally of the Florida-produced beer scene," Connor said.

They're calling this one Beer Brunch. It's slated for Sept. 16 at Harry's and will be the first in a monthly series showcasing local chefs and brews from around the state.

The menu so far is shaping up to include pickled shrimp paired with a Florida lager or hefeweizen; huevos rancheros and chipotle cream with an amber ale or lager; and a short rib bulls eye, which appears to be four-inch pizza dough topped with a nest of short rib with an egg baked inside. No word on pricing yet.

Salsa Fiesta Slings a So-So Mexican Brunch

Huevos rancheros -- on corn chips.
Salsa Fiesta started in Venezuela, where it has flourished as a food court staple. The Biscayne Boulevard branch has also fared well; it's Mexican fast food, but of a higher quality than the Taco Bell-level chains. Actually, the folks at Salsa Fiesta prefer having their food referred to as "casual" Mexican -- and the website adds "We mean 'real' Mexican food."

Real Mexican? That's getting carried away. But the food here is tasty, and is now available in brunch form every Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

How was the brunch? Eh.
