Miamians take brunch very seriously. After all, there is nothing better than enjoying a plate of warm french toast with a mimosa in hand. And while the options are basically endless, your experience can vary depending on what you’re looking for. On one side, foodies might see taste and quality as a game changer while those looking to have a good time might search for the best Bloody Mary deals. To make your search a bit easier, we’ve come up with a quick list of our favorite brunch spots in Downtown and Brickell.

At LA MAR brunch, you can enjoy plates from all kinds of cuisines including favorites such as ceviche, sushi, anticuchos, pork buns, and causas. Not only are the plates one of a kind, but the bottomless cocktails are delicious as well. From the famous Peruvian Pisco Sours to sweet lychee mimosas, there is something for every taste. We recommend its signature drink called El Tunki (a Peruvian concoction of barsol acholado, peach liqueur, lemon juice, and fruit punch). But make sure to save room for dessert, because you’ll receive either a house or a tower of sweets.
