Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of the New Times free.
If you ask someone in Miami what their favorite food is, you will likely hear “brunch”. So it only makes sense that this lovely combination of breakfast and lunch items would give us a reason to celebrate them alongside one of the biggest holidays of the year: Easter Sunday.
Easter Sunday is not only known for the egg hunt and the Easter bunny. In Miami, restaurants everywhere celebrate with vacation-themed brunches that feature sumptuous spreads and special menus.
In alphabetical order, here are the best places to enjoy Easter Sunday brunch in Magic City this year. (Unless otherwise stated, all brunches take place on Easter Sunday, April 4th. Taxes and tips are not included in the list price. Reservations are strongly recommended.)
