With a nightlife like Miami’s, you need a lifesaving brunch scene. Thankfully, Magic City delivers. Showing up in sweats to guzzle coffee and breakfast burgers? Welcome. Taking your grandparents out for a charming meal? Brunch it is. Ordering bottomless drinks at 10 AM? More power to you.
From waterfront bistros to buzzing rooftop lounges, to diners infused with Cuban and Colombian flavors, you can find it all in Miami. We rounded up the top spots in the city for a delicious brunch—whether you need a strong pot of coffee or a pitcher of bloody marys.
The Top 10 Places for Brunch in Miami
Start your weekend with Maine Lobster Benedict and stunning views of the Miami River and downtown skyline. The Seaspice brasserie is on another level for elegant brunch, and one of the most beautiful restaurants in the city. The spot embraces elevated “gastro-classic” dining, with dishes like Truffle Parmesan Tagliatelle, served to you on the chic, waterfront patio.
Where: 412 NW N River Dr., Miami, FL

Sadelle’s Coconut Grove
Set in idyllic Coconut Grove, with branches in Las Vegas, New York, Paris, and beyond, the famed Sadelle's is hailed by Harper’s Bazaar and Cosmo as a must-visit brunch spot, and their renowned sticky buns were listed on the NY Times Best Dishes of 2015. Despite ample indoor and outdoor seating, reservations remain highly competitive to snag, likely due to its status as a brag-worthy destination, or the allure of their Insta-famous Bagel Towers.
Where: 3321 Mary St, Miami, FL

At either spot, you’ll find great food, music, and an always-popping atmosphere.
