Breakfast and Miami go together like smoothies and chia seeds, which is to say not something anyone ever dreamed of until pretty recently. But with Miami becoming a real city with real white collar workers getting up before noon, well, enter breakfast spots that have nothing to do with hangovers.
1 Crumb on Parchment
This gem of a breakfast and lunch spot, hidden away in the atrium of a Design District building boasts dishes by celeb chef Michelle Bernstein. The menu, which features fresh baked goods, such as whole wheat croissants and The Breakfastwich with fluffy eggs with kale, sautéed onion, chicken apple sausage & melting cheddar between toasted butter-bread, says it all.
3930 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33137
"Eat Clean" is their motto, but it really should be "Eat Well." They make sure that everything in the place is made with the best ingredients around, and that means a lot when it comes to breakfast food. Their own brew of coffee, as much organic produce as possible and gluten-free options. Think acai-bowl, avocado toast, fresh pressed juices and things like "vegan clean bowls" which boast quinoa, caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, red peppers, avocado, salsa verde, chile d’arbol hot sauce.
232 5th Street, Miami Beach
The king of the cold-pressed juice bars, this spot also has cold, raw coffee drinks, smoothies, raw oatmeal and assorted bowls such as the Sunset Harbour Acai Bowl and the Sana de Rana made with rich super foods that can fill you up for hours and hours.
Various locations including SoFi, Sunset Harbour, Davie, Wynwood and Coral Gables.
A new organic, fast-food concept from former Miami Heat star Ray Allen and his wife Shannon, this new spot is a must-hit in South Miami for clean eaters. Imagine organic, gluten-free blueberry pancakes, steel-cut oatmeal and Grown home fries. What else could you ask for?
8211 South Dixie Highway Miami, FL 33143
5 Ella Cafe
Where else can you get a wild salmon sandwich, house-made gourmet donuts and kombacha in one place? No where. So it figures chef Michael Schwartz is behind this one (with a little help from his daughter, Ella). While this is a pop-up, it's about ready to celebrate it's 1st anniversary, so we say let it ride.
Palm Court, 40 NE 39th St, Miami, FL
