Brunch is every Miamian’s excuse to drink before 5 PM—not that they exactly need one. After a long weekend, it’s nice to have a relaxing Sunday, and that’s why we compiled a list of the five best Latin brunch spots in Miami.
Novecento’s mantra is the classic phrase, “mi casa es su casa.” At this homey restaurant, you can find classic brunch plates with an Argentine twist, like eggs benedict with entrañita—a Latin skirt steak. Not only does Novecento offer mouth-watering plates, but it also serves complimentary mimosas from 10 AM to 11:30 AM on Sundays.
Miami Beach’s Barcolenta is an elegant Spanish Mediterranean bistro. It offers tapas, a raw bar, exotic rice, and fresh seafood. Brunch is $38 a person (minimum two guests) and allows you to pick six items like huevos rotos (fried eggs), ensalada ferran Florida (salad with watermelon), and arroz negro con calamar (black rice with calamari) to share. The brunch also includes one dessert per every two guests, and a Boozy Brunch Open Bar, which is $25 per person for bottomless bloody marys, sangria, and mimosas. Our favorite brunch dish is the tortilla de pisto, which is a Spanish omelet with Castilian vegetable ragu, shoestring potatoes, and manchego cheese.
1400 20th Street
Downtown Miami’s Toro Toro is a revered steakhouse with a bottomless brunch buffet that costs just $45 a person. You can enjoy unlimited mimosas, bloody Mary’s, and micheladas. Choose from a display of dishes like tortilla Espanola with chipotle aioli, and cuts from the carving station like the sizzling chorizo. Our favorite dish is the chocolate waffles with Nutella, dulce de leche, and bananas.
100 Chopin Plaza
Eating House is one of our favorite Coral Gables destinations. The creative chef and owner, Giorgio Rapicavoli, keeps the menu fresh, changing it every few months. One item that never changes, however, is the famous brunch staple—torrejas—which is similar to French toast, but hearty Cuban bread. It comes covered with guava/iron beer syrup, whipped cream cheese, and Maria cookie streusel. The restaurant also serves a mind-blowing guava mimosa.
804 Ponce De Leon Blvd
Our onsite restaurant FIX is the perfect spot for a laid-back brunch. This modern but rustic bistro serves breakfast all-day. The most popular menu item is the Rice Crispy French Toast, made with brioche bread, dipped in bourbon caramel sauce, and served with fresh strawberries. Our other guest favorites include our spicy bloody mary and fruity strawberry mojito, which comes garnished with fresh strawberries in a mason jar.
