Desperate to Change My Breakfast Repertoire- Miami, Aventura, Hollywood, Ft. Laud.
Any feedback on any of the below for brunch/breakfast? I'm open to other suggestions.
Diner in Fort Lauderdale
Juices and health food in North Miami Beach
On the water in Hollywood
The French Bakery
Aventura and Hollywood locations
This is a German-owned hole in the wall in Pompano (a bit further than I would like to go)
Have not tried any of the above but French Bakery in Bal Harbour is Maria Frumkin (formerly Duo) who is highly thought of.
Mom's Diner is just that...a diner! Cypress Nook is very good, but I don't know where you are coming from! I love their raspberry pancakes and I am told the egg dishes are excellent. (I don't eat eggs.)
We love Sunday breakfast at Coconuts in Fort Lauderdale, the only day they serve breakfast.
There is a Rendez-vous in Fort Lauderdale, on Oakland Park Blvd. If that is the same as those you mentioned, they serve a nice breakfast.
We are ALWAYS looking for new and good breakfast places and haven't fpund anything terribly exciting beyond what you've mentioned.
Don't know how far you're willing to go, but Buenos Aires Bakery (in the 70s on Collins) has a great array of sweet and savory pastries and nice milky cafe con leche. Also, David's Two off Lincoln Road does homemade, skinny, fresh-fried churros.
I like going to the Rainbo Cafe, in downtown Hollywood. The metered parking is right there, the food is reliably 'diner good,' and the setting/people watching/bustle makes me glad I'm sitting with a mimosa and watching the world go by. It's close, convenient and friendly -- and the food is good.
And, sometimes that's just what you want from a breakfast place!
I know it's a chain, but we loved The Original Pancake House at 213th and Biscayne in the Target plaza. We were there for the first time last week and really enjoyed it.
Although it is grimy, the Sage Bagel on Hallandale Beach Blvd is great. We tried bagels and whitefish salad from all the other Jewish delis in the vicinity and hands down, the Sage was the best. I also noticed they sliced their lox by hand.
