Best Al Fresco Brunches in Miami

Miami is not only one of Florida’s most popular dining destinations, but it’s also one of the most popular dining destinations in the country. With a wealth of outdoor restaurants, restaurants with outdoor seating, bistros, cafes, and fine- and casual dining establishments, it’s no wonder that nearly half of people (especially in Miami) prefer dining out during the summer. And the best way to enjoy al fresco dining is during the mild, bright mid-morning of a lazy Sunday afternoon.


Read on for five of the best outdoor brunch places in Miami, Florida.

Talavera Cocina Mexicana

Talavera Cocina Mexicana offers authentic Mexican street food dressed up for a Sunday out. Consistent and uncompromising, their limited brunch menu needs nothing more than chilaquiles, tacos de Barbacao, and their heavenly and perfect huevos rancheros. Talavera serves brunch from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, but it's recommended to make reservations in order to get a good table. If it's not at the top, it’s definitely one of the very best brunch places in Miami.

Jaguar Latin-American Kitchen

Jaguar Latin American Kitchen sometimes matches, sometimes even exceeds Talavera, but is always a safe bet for a great experience. It’s Pan-Latin, with brunch offerings from simple oatmeal or a fresh fruit plate to the highlight: Churrasco a Caballo. One of the best brunch places in Miami for pairing your repast with a mimosa or Bloody Mary. Brunch is served at Jaguar from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sunday.

Peacock Garden Bistro

The atmosphere is what makes Peacock Garden Bistro one of the best outdoor brunch places in Miami: It's every bit as vivid as its namesake and tucked in the historic Village of Coconut Grove. The “garden-inspired” cuisine yields the most variety on this list, with a weekend brunch loaded with favorites like omelets, to grand innovations like their delicious short-rib Benedict. For a simpler afternoon, try something from the bakery. Peacock Garden Bistro serves brunch from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The spicy egg casserole is something special.


Everyone is talking about Bulla, the fast-growing Spanish gastropub with the famous huevos Bulla. They are open for brunch at noon on Saturday and 11 a.m. on Sunday. Their prix fixe menu is all you need, especially if you add on the bottomless Sangria or mimosas -- a combination that makes it one of the best weekend brunch places in Miami -- but there's an extensive brunch menu to draw from a la carte.

Greenstreet Cafe

Greenstreet Cafe has been one of the best brunch places in Miami for a while. This old standard satisfies the sweet tooth with popular innovations like cinnamon roll pancakes, coconut-crusted French toast, and the subtle sweetness of their goat cheese and tomato omelet. Their al fresco seating might exceed the competitors by virtue of its premium people-watching. Greenstreet Cafe serves brunch from 7:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Make sure you indulge in some delicious brunch next time you're in Miami -- enjoy!
