It’s not that Miami invented brunch. (They say the credit goes to Guy Beringer, a London author who posited way back in 1895 that a late-morning meal would make life easier for "Saturday-night carousers.") But we’re certain Miami is where brunch lives now, the epicenter of the late-morning weekend meal. That’s especially true for bottomless brunch, a magical occasion to day-drink in excess and turn a plate of eggs into a near-endless party. 

We will admit that Miami is home to plenty of boozy brunches geared toward out-of-towners who don’t know their mimosas from their bellinis. So before you go following a menu-toting hostess into an Ocean Drive tourist trap, follow us instead. These are our favorite Miami bottomless brunches, where Saturday-night carousers can eat well while keeping the party going into Sunday afternoon.

There isn’t another bottomless brunch in town that better defines the genre. At Jaya, tables spread out in a charming open-air courtyard surrounding the pool. In the center on a stage right there in the middle of the water, a DJ sets up on Saturdays and a jazz band on Sundays. You’ll see people in their best flowy dresses and sports jackets.

The food, from executive chef Vijayudu Veena, is far from the standard fare, with everything from Indian to Indonesian, and was recently updated to include Peking duck and grilled-to-order stations. The drinks are, of course, endless: The $105 price includes bottomless bottomless rosé and a spritz bar on Saturdays and free-flowing bloody mary and mojito bar on Sundays.

  • Peruvian
  • Brickell Key
  • price 4 of 4

The restaurant with the best view in Miami and the city's finest representation of Peruvian Nikkei cuisine ought to be on the list of anyone who relishes a midday splurge. Aside from the buffet, the brunch includes a full entree from the dinner menu and also a tower of desserts delivered tableside. The $135 price includes endless pours of many drink options, including the house specialty pisco sour, a fresh, foamy cocktail that'll get your Sunday started right.

Arguably one of Miami’s hottest, or at least prettiest, restaurants of the moment, Casadonna’s indoor-outdoor space along the bay is a handsome spot to brunch. Along with eggs in purgatory and Sicilian pistachio pancakes, the $85 Casadonna brunch offers two bottomless drink upgrades, either a $38 deal with champagne, rosé and spritzes or a $60 version that adds cocktails. 

How serious are we in Miami about brunch? So much so that we don’t limit it to the hours of actual brunch. The Tea Room serves up an Asian version at night, timed with what would be morning in Hong Kong. The five-course brunch starts at $98, depending on upgrades, and includes two hours of free-flowing wine, champagne and beer.

  • Spanish
  • West Coconut Grove
  • price 3 of 4

Rarely can you find a restaurant with a view and vibes for days that also puts out good food. But the Spanish-ish menu at the rooftop Level 6 is as good as the location. For brunch, pair Spanish omelets and patatas bravas with a $50 bottomless mimosas and bellinis. 

  • Chinese
  • Brickell
  • price 3 of 4

This Brickell outpost of a Hong Kong-bred concept serves up a two-hour brunch that’s a dim sum best-of, though here they skip the carts for made-to-order dishes, as many as you can devour. Ample add-ons include prawns with black truffles and a Peking duck carving station. Drink options start with $45 for free-flowing prosecco, select signature cocktails, wine and beer, or wanna-be dictators can spend $65 for the “Emperor bar package” with more cocktail options.

  • Design District

The waterfront restaurant in Edgewater by chef Michael Schwartz adds a Latin spin on its brunch, with a brioche french toast filled with guava and cheese and a breakfast sando with lamb chorizo. Pair it with an “all you can drink rosé deal for $29. That sounds like a dare. 

  • Cocktail bars
  • Wynwood
  • price 2 of 4

Beaker & Gray is just as fun as it was when it helped pioneer this eastern bit of the arts district way back in 2015. The brunch is bumped up by $48 bottomless (albeit with a two-hour limit) sparkling wine and mimosas made with the traditional orange or watermelon juice.

The stylish white house that’s home to Pinch Kitchen turns into a chill Sunday party when brunch comes around. The dishes here are as pretty as the surroundings, like eggs in a crispy potato basket that’s as cheery as the rising sun, and the stuffed brioche French toast with guava jam tastes like something that could only be created here in Miami. Add on bottomless mimosas for $25, because we ought to make a day out of this house party.

  • South of Fifth
  • price 3 of 4

This is the only restaurant in the Prime family that won’t break the bank, especially at brunch. Choose an egg dish for your entrée and make your way to the large buffet for starters, seafood and sweets. Plus, brunch comes with bottomless mimosas, bellinis, prosecco and bloody marys too. Were you dining at Prime on a regular night, the $59 price would barely cover a tip.

  • Brickell
  • price 2 of 4

You might know it more for its football watch parties than its food, but the brunch game at this mini Miami-bred chain is strong. The widespread menu covers the classics (pancakes, omelets) the trendy (avocado toast, chicken and waffles) and the hangover-curing (hashes, burgers). The bottomless drink option lasts only 90 minutes but includes five drink options and is a steal at $25.

Every Saturday and Sunday until 3pm, Ocean Social hosts a waterfront brunch where the $35 bottomless mimosas and $45 bottomless rosé deals are almost better than the views. Vibe out on the patio for two hours while noshing on chef Epps’ elevated fare like Steak & Eggs with grilled sirloin and organic eggs, acai bowls or a smash burger with house-made fries.

When your brunch plans center around getting buzzed, Tap 42 is where you want to book. Reserve a table (they fill up quickly on weekends) and settle in for four hours of unlimited mimosas, bloody marys and select tap beers. You can technically make this a liquid brunch, as the purchase of an entrée isn’t required to get the deal on drinks. Fortunately, there’s more than one burger on the menu and an aptly named hangover sandwich to ensure you don’t.

Sugarcane’s bottomless brunch offering continues until 4:30pm every day, meaning you no longer have to wait for the weekend to indulge. The $35 drink deal includes two hours of unlimited red or white sangria or prosecco rosé, to be enjoyed while dining on the brasserie's signature a la carte brunch plates like the Duck & Waffle, Truffled Toad in The Hole, Cuban Benedict and more.

The fabulous Athena Dion hosts R House’s legendary drag brunch, where your scrambled eggs and mimosa come with a side of spectacular performances.

Planta raises the bar on unlimited brunch booze. Steven Salm’s glitzy vegan spot that began in the South of Fifth neighborhood and spawned clones across South Florida includes bottomless mimosas and margaritas. After a few of those, you'll be ready to move on to a menu that's a mix of cuisines, like the falafel tacos or shakshuka with split-pea fritters.

Nosh your way through a three-course tapas menu at Bulla, where brunch dishes run the gamut from Spanish and traditional like pan con tomate to hearty and hangover-staving like the burger. Make it a party, although cut off at two hours, with bottomless sangria and mimosas for an extra $22.

The Goodtime Hotel's pink-hued, poolside Mediterranean restaurant serves a bottomless brunch on Saturday and Sunday (11am to 4pm) for $36—though that's just for the cocktails. The choices: mimosa, rośe and a Jah-Mama Mary. That last one is essentially a bloody mary made with Jah Mama, a scotch-bonnet hot sauce. You can enjoy a liquid brunch or opt for several tasty a-la-carte items, such as the chocolate babka french toast, shakshuka or the falafel benedict.

Is the fact that you’re out of college really going to keep you from partying like you’re still in the dorms? It’s brunch, which means hair of the dog, which means partying in what might be Brickell’s partiest of brunches, which means splurgy dishes like cinnamon French toast crunch paired with endless mimosas for 25 bucks.
