Cafe Americano

“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” You’ve likely heard that common saying in some form or another.

Whether breakfast actually is the most important is arguable, but there’s no denying it can set the tone for the rest of the day. So why not treat yourself? Check out these seven best breakfast restaurants in Miami for a fun start to your day:

Café Americano Brickell

Café Americano Brickell at Brickell City Centre is open all day long, but the breakfast menu at this Latin-inspired eatery holds a special place in our stomach.

Stop by early for a bevy of breakfast favorites like Denver omelettes, barbacoa chilaquiles, steak and eggs, and Benedicts. Prefer something on the sweeter side? Say no more: Café Americano serves up delights like fluffy buttermilk pancakes and Belgium waffles, plus an ultra-decadent tres leches french toast.

And yes, there are healthy selections, too, such as avocado toast and matcha yogurt parfait; all the bases are covered. 

Café Bastille 

If your budget doesn’t allow for an impromptu trip to France, the next best thing is a visit to Downtown Miami’s Café Bastille. The French eatery serves all-day breakfast, so you can chow down on pastries and other standouts during operating hours. Sweet, savory, in between … No matter your preference, Café Bastille has something for you.

If you have a sweet tooth, the café offers sugary delights in spades. Stuffed Nutella French toast and red velvet pancakes are among the more decadent sights here, while simple fare like Greek yogurt and croissants with jam make for lighter options.

Savory palates have even more selections to choose from, including the eatery’s ever-popular Benedicts; you can get yours with proteins like smoked salmon, cajun shrimp, and turkey. Frank’s famous hash is another must-try if you’re not counting calories – it’s a beast. 

Café Bastille is located at 248 SE 1st Street, Miami, FL 33131. For more information, visit their official website.

El Bagel 

El Bagel is a Miami success story. This ode to bagel sandwiches started out as a food truck, making weekly appearances at local hangouts like Boxelder in Wynwood and Vice City Bean in Downtown Miami. The lines were sometimes outrageous, but the sandwiches lived up to the hype; seeing the same faces — and a ton of new faces — every week was a testament to the quality.

El Bagel has doubled down on the success with their brick-and-mortar store in the MiMo area, which is open bright and early for breakfast. The menu features crowd favorites like the King Guava — a sweet and salty mix of guava marmalade, plain cream cheese, fried egg, and potato stix — and the Las Tardes, a thin-sliced turkey and house-made tomato jam delight.

Should you prefer something lighter, El Bagel offers their bagels by themselves with a range of schmears including roasted veg and scallion. You can also order add-ons like lox and whitefish salad. The brand recently opened a second shop in Coconut Grove – a welcome addition to the neighborhood. 

El Bagel has two locations in Miami. For more information, visit their official website.

Greenstreet Cafe

Day or night, you can count on Coconut Grove’s Greenstreet Café to serve up your satisfying grub. The neighborhood institution offers a wide range of breakfast options for discerning palates, including coconut-crusted French toast, cinnamon roll pancakes, housemade muffins, and organic granola

Not everything here falls on the sweeter side, though: Hefty selections like the goat cheese and tomato omelet, steak and eggs, and the nova platter are just a taste of the plentiful savory selections. Feeling like a cocktail? Bloody Marys, mimosas, and frosé are all available during breakfast hours, as well as certain cocktails like espresso martinis. This place has everything – even boba tea!

Greenstreet Café is located at 3468 Main Highway, Miami, FL 33133. For more information, visit their official website.

Josh’s Deli

Surfside locals know that Josh’s Deli is a must for a hearty and satisfying breakfast. Latkes, corned beef hash and shakshuka are just a few of the offerings that this cozy eatery cooks up regularly.

Pancakes and French toast are also plentiful but it’s the savory selections that keep us coming back – you can’t go wrong with either side of the flavor scale, though. One item you won’t find elsewhere: the famous spicy tuna latkes with sriracha cream cheese and pickled onions.

Don’t let its untraditional nature deter you; it packs a ton of flavor and is a steal at under 10 bucks for two pieces. 

Josh’s Deli is located at 9517 Harding Avenue, Surfside, FL 33154. For more information, visit their official Instagram


A Wynwood staple, Morgan’s has been serving up delicious morning fare since 2010. While the institution touts brunch on its site, the restaurant opens at 8 a.m. so we’re counting it as breakfast, too.

Options abound, including highlights like a hearty English breakfast with bacon, roasted mushrooms, beans, house pork sausage and more; stacks of raspberry flat cakes; chocolate dipped waffles; and eggs Benedict Florentine; we’re not even scratching the surface here.

Same goes for the drink selection: coffee, tea, smoothies, juices and adult beverages.  Round up your favorite early birds and pay Morgan’s a visit – you’ll want a little bit of everything. 

Morgan’s is located at 28 NE 29th Street, MIami, FL 33137. For more information, visit their official website

Tinta y Café

Cuban restaurants are a dime a dozen in Miami, but Tinta y Café is among the best. This Coral Gables (and Miami Shores) business serves up all the Cuban classics like tostadas, croquetas, pastelitos along with a variety of delectable hot plates.

The appropriately named Breakfast Sandwich is a beast with egg, ham, cheese, and jam on medianoche bread. The Huevones section of the menu features equally sizeable egg sandwiches that can be made to your liking.

More impressive than the food is the coffee. Expect exceptional café con leches and other Cuban staples. Get some for the road along with grab-and-go goodies like empanadas. If it’s especially hot outside, order an iced café con leche — you may even like it better than the regular version!

Tinta y Café has two locations in Miami. For more information, visit their official website
