Miami is one of the country's hottest cities right now. The warm weather, crazy night life, and hip hotels attract vacationers from near and far. Like every great vacation spot, Miami comes with great restaurants, but there are too many to pick from! Looking for the hottest brunch spots in Miami? I've got you covered. 

Micheal's Genuine Food and Drink

Micheal's Genuine is the place to be if you're looking for a light brunch. Due to their "small plate" style, you will have the opportunity to try multiple menu items, and believe me, you'll be glad you can. Buttermilk pancakes with add-ins of your choice are the perfect way to start your meal. The fast service ensures that they'll be on your table before you can decide what you want next. I was feeling #basic and went for their avocado toast. If you're only going to order a few things, be sure to add the egg on top for some extra protein. This meal comes with the must-have experience of exploring the Design District, which has unique art galleries and high end shopping.

Pura Vida

Looking for a quick bite to eat right before heading to the beach? Pura Vida will be your go-to. Pura Vida's fast service allows you to get to the beach ASAP (#SpoonTip: You can even order online in advance if you're eager to be in the Miami sun). Seating is scarce though, so you might be forced to take your meal to go anyways. Their acai bowls are always my top choice, but if I'm taking my meal to go, I stay clear of them because melted acai from the beating sun is no fun. Their wraps and salads are also incredibly satisfying. The Volcano Chicken is my favorite, because it doesn't leave me feeling overstuffed.

Malibu Farm

Looking for a good view and good vibes? Malibu Farm has made its way from California to Miami and has landed  in Miami's Eden Roc Hotel. You'll be overlooking the Atlantic Ocean as you dine, which contributes to the extravagant ambiance. While this brunch is on the pricier side, Malibu Farm puts their money where their mouth is. They are proud that their farm-to-table food is organic, fresh, and locally sourced whenever possible. I'm normally a fan of breakfast sandwiches, but I was feeling a bit adventurous, so I went for their breakfast burrito. The burrito was very filling because of its multiple sources of protein, including eggs, chicken sausage, and black beans. You may find yourself booking a room at the Eden Roc Hotel by the end of your meal thanks to the fun atmosphere and stunning view.


Named "Best New Concept" by Starchefs and "Best Inexpensive Restaurant" by Miami New Times, Dirt is the place to be for a casual, quick, and healthy brunch. Because it is located near a number of Miami's popular fitness studios, including Flywheel, Barry's Bootcamp, and Greenmonkey Yoga, fitness junkies love to grab a bite to eat here after their workout. Dirt boasts about the quality of their ingredients on their website, calling it "high-quality food that is good for you and good for the planet." They even evaluate all of their ingredients with a program developed by the United States Healthful Food Council.

Prime Fish

Feast on breakfast, lunch, and dessert at Prime Fish's all-inclusive brunch. For $59.00 a person, enjoy their buffet stations, one a la carte item, and bottomless mimosas for those 21+. Although expensive, it is not overpriced; the food at Prime Fish is worth it. The array of food is extravagant, and many diners will spend 2-3 hours enjoying their meal and getting in every bite their stomach can handle from their all you can eat buffet. The buffet, which is my favorite part, features miniature versions of their massive dinner entrees, like mini fried chicken and waffles, kobe meatballs, and red velvet cheesecake.
