The idea behind chef Michael Beltran’s ode to the American diner is to reinvent dishes we’ve known all our lives. He does it by adding a bit of flavor from his Cuban heritage and Miami upbringing to mostly traditional dishes. That’s evident in the chicharrones-like hunks of bacon on the wedge salad, a downright incredible burger inspired by a Big Mac and a decadent chocolate cake reminiscent of the ones that come in triangle boxes from Burger King. The vibe here is also spot-on, looking simultaneously hip and historic, with lots of natural wood tones, comfy booths and ’50s rock just loud enough to kick your day into party mode.
First, grab your phone—because who did you text late last night, and is there still time to edit? Next, grab a brush and a shirt that doesn’t still smell like the Deuce, because you need breakfast in your system stat. (How else are you expected to make it to happy hour later?) Thankfully, Miami’s best breakfast restaurants are well-suited to handle the hungover. They’re also great for the athleisure-clad, up-at-dawn folks who make the rest of us look bad as they reply to emails and sip their green juice over at the next table. That’s not you today. Right now, you need eggs, bacon, carbs and caffeine. You’ll find it all at the best breakfast spots in Miami: comforting diner staples, flaky croissants, bottomless cocktails and glorious bagel sandwiches. Depending on how hard you went last night, choose from a variety of price points and volume levels included here, too.
