Before doing so you have to be aware and know that Miami is a really expensive city and it gets really difficult to find places to eat for a good value. If you keep reading you will find places where you can have breakfast in Miami, the best restaurants to eat healthy and the funniest restaurants to have dinner and enjoy the Miami atmosphere.
Where to have breakfast in Miami
If you’re looking for places to have breakfast in Miami there’s something you first need to know. Breakfast prices in Miami are similar to those for lunch or dinner. You won’t find breakfast menus or won’t be able to have breakfast for less than $8. Plus, fruit juices are too expensive. They all cost around $10.
This place was the first one I went to when I got to Miami. They serve amazing chicken waffles. It isn’t a light breakfast, but it’s really worth it. The waffles dish costs $18 but it’s huuuuuge. We shared it between two and we left. It’s in Wynwood, at the beginning of Design District. Plus, the place offers free parking.
Friend’s Market & Bistro
Not many people know of that place. It’s in Brickell. They have a wide menu from breakfast to dinner. It opens at 7.00h and closes at 00.00h. After trying out a lot of açaí bowls I must say this one is the best açaí bowl in Miami. Sometimes it’s too icy, but it’s soooo nice. It’s only $8.75. Another very good option is the ham & cheese bagel with scrambled eggs. The best one I’ve tried for $7.95. Despite of being a good place, I think it’s probably the cheapest place I have ever been to for breakfast here. If you go to my Instagram account you will find pictures of this place on stories.
In case you are looking for a healthy and organic breakfast this is your place. It’s right in Miami Beach. You can click here to have a look at the menu. The bowls are really good and so are the wraps. Miami priced.
B Bistro + Bakery
This is one is one of the best restaurants if you want to have a strong breakfast. Plus, their croissants received the best croissants in Miami Award. They also sell muffins called cruffins. Delicious!!. I tried the unicorn one and loved it. I recommend you try the truffle bun if you ever go there. It’s like a big burger made of a sweet and soft bread, scrambled eggs, arugula, cheddar cheese, bacon and truffle ali oli ($14).
It’s the most traditional place to eat breakfast in Miami. It’s not a healthy option but their menu is enormous. I couldn’t resist to order a French Toast when I went there and the Eggs Benedicts. We definitely didn’t need to order two dishes. We took the French Toast home. It food is not amazing but it’s worth a try only by its deco. So instagram friendly. Everything is pink, they have a pink car and everything is very american.
Restaurantes asequibles y sanos en Miami
This place serve the best rolls I have tried in my life. If you are sushi lover you have to come here. Avocado, eel sauce, cheese cream, shrimp tempura, crab and sauces. I think I don’t need to say anything else, have a look at the picture. The prices are around $15, very good price for Miami. My fave ones are Romeo & Julliet and Suctury.
Mandolin Aegean Bistro
This is a greek restaurant. It’s without a doubt one of the best restaurants I’ve eaten in terms of quality-price. The place is lovely, the walls are painted in white and clear blue with trees all over. It’s a really romantic place if you come for dinner. My fave dishes are the mussels with white wine sauce and the fried calamari. I think they’re the only good calamari you can find in Miami. If you’re still hungry you can order a «baklava» for dessert or a traditional greek orange cake. Both really good. $60 approx 2 people.
The best guacamole I have ever tried outside of Mexico. It costs $15, a bit expensive but it’s worth it. We ordered a few dishes more, but wouldn’t do it again. I would only go for the guacamole.
Malibu Farm Miami Beach
If you are looking for a restaurant with views to South Beach this is your place. The deco is lovely and the environment is nice. It’s right in the Nobu Hotel, the old Eden Roc. I recommend this place for vegetarians/vegans and it’s even gluten-free. I would order again the «Avocado Pizza» and the «Chicken Ricotta Burger». It’s not a cheap place, but once doesn’t harm anybody. You’re paying the place and the views. Click here if you want to see the menu
We can have one cheat day. Here you will find the best burgers if you’re looking for a fast food place. Fries are delicious.
DIRT is a very good option to eat fast and healthy. They have many vegan and gluten-free options. It’s really nice and good priced. I ordered the «Clean Bowl».
If you are near Design District don’t doubt to come along. This is the meeting point for the models who visit Miami. If you fancy an avocado toast, this is your place.
Juice & Java Miami Beach
A light meal right next to the beach. Here you will find wraps and smoothies.
Spris o Mom’s New York Pizza
This spot is not a healthy choice but it case you’re in a rush.. You can find Spris at Lincoln Road. From 17.00h to 19.30h you will pay for the pizza depending on the time you order it. If you order it at 17.30h it will cost 5.30$.
Mom’s New York Pizza is just in Ocean Dr. It’s really good. They sell huge pizza portions but not cheap at all. ($6 per portion).
Cena disfrutando del ambiente de Miami
It’s a thai restaurant. I was shocked the first time I went, the food is really nice. We tried the Chrispy Bok Choi, very tasty and the Popcorn Schrimp. Both as appetizers. Then we ordered two more dishes we got recommended. The Pad Thai and also the Red Curry (I recommend it myself). It’s not cheap, but for the price you normally pay in Miami, this restaurant offers a really good value.
Seaspice is one of the places you have to go if you want to have dinner with loud music and you want to see what’s going on in the nightclub next door. It’s in Downtown Miami. The views are amazing as it’s right in the canal. You will freak out when you see the yachts berthing right in front of the restaurant and the people from the nightclub going up to keep the party going. The prices are quite high but the food is really nice. I recommend the risotto with lobster. $50 per pax approx.
Watr Rooftop at 1 Hotel South Beach
It is a very good option if you want to have dinner in a hotel with a good atmosphere. This is one of the most beautiful hotels in South Beach. The decoration is impeccable. Plus, they have gorgeous views of the beach from the rooftop, «Watr Rooftop Bar«. You can access the rooftop from 7.00pm. It’s expensive, but again, you’re paying for the venue.
Zuma o Novikov
These two are the hottest spots in Miami if you want to be seen. People seem to come here to walk around instead of coming to have dinner. In mi opinion, these are extremely expensive. The portions are very small, but the meals are really good. If the price isn’t a problem for you, go there. 2 people $160 approx.
