Miami’s Best Breakfast Restaurants

Miami RestaurantsAmong many other things, Miami is well known for its exciting nightlife. Almost every night of the week, bars and nightclubs on South Beach are packed with people enjoying themselves late into the night. As a way to balance out that incredible nightlife, it’s only natural for Miami to also have a number of great breakfast restaurants to give the party people of Miami a place to get a good meal and recharge their batteries the morning after a night out. Here are some of the best places to eat breakfast in Miami.

Green Street Café

Located in Coconut Grove, the Green Street Café is a great spot if you want to refuel after a crazy adventure the night before or if you want to fuel up for a long day of sightseeing in Miami. Visitors can sit outdoors and enjoy the Miami sun early in the day before it gets too hot. While sitting outside, there is a wide variety of French toast, pancakes, and omelets, as well as smaller options like bagels, egg, and fruit. Perhaps best of all, if you require a little hair of the dog or would like to enjoy an A.M. cocktail, Green Street Café offers Sangria, Bloody Mary’s, and a nice selection of beverages to go with your breakfast.


Located in the sophisticated Biltmore Hotel, Fontana is one of the best breakfast places in the area south of downtown Miami. In addition to being so elegantly decorated, the restaurant offers plenty of fresh fruit and pastries for those looking for a small breakfast. For anyone in search of something more substantial, there are pancakes, Belgian waffles, and an endless variety of omelets and frittatas, both of which can be made just the way you like it. If you’re fortunate enough to stop by Fontana on a Sunday, you can check out the restaurant’s champagne brunch buffet, which is guaranteed to overwhelm you with options, including a chocolate fountain in case you want to eat your first dessert earlier in the day than usual.

Front Porch Café

If you don’t want to leave South Beach for your breakfast, you don’t have to, just visit the Front Porch Café. This is a casual, laid-back restaurant with an oceanfront view, so the vibe and location are ideal for a relaxing breakfast. The food isn’t bad either. In addition to traditional favorites like pancakes, French toast, and breakfast pastries, the Front Porch Café offers more than a dozen different types of omelets, three types of eggs Benedict, and several delectable scrambled egg dishes. There is also a breakfast pizza, breakfast burritos, and even breakfast tacos, giving you far more options than you could ever need to have a delicious breakfast.

Eleventh Street Diner

This diner is a great place to start your day when visiting South Beach, and because breakfast is served all day you can stop in for your first meal of the day no matter what time you wake up. The Eleventh Street Diner may not blow you away with elaborate breakfast dishes, but all the basics are here, including steak & eggs, salmon & eggs, waffles, pancakes, and a dozen different types of omelets. If you want to take your chances with something fancy, there are other options, but if you want a guarantee of a hearty and tasty breakfast, Eleventh Street Diner is the place to go.
