Breakfast at Miami Beach near airport

I'm visiting southern florida for 3 days in May on Mother's day weekend. I have 6 hours (6am to 12pm) in Miami while I wait for my sister's flight to arrive. I don't really want to sit around the airport for 6 hours, so I thought I'd check out Miami Beach. It will be a Friday morning.

I'm planning on renting a car, so I'm looking for a place to have a nice breakfast with outdoor seating in Miami Beach. Ideally, I'd like to be able to either take a walk on the beach afterward or explore an interesting neighborhood.

Any suggestions?

  1. Go to BLT Steak in the Betsy Hotel and then walk Ocean Drive, which runs right next to the beach; or go to Icebox Cafe and then walk Lincoln Road.

      Thanks! Icebox and Lincoln Road look right up my alley!

        I would do books and books instead of icebox as books and books is more consistent.

          Has Icebox really gone that far downhill? It's been a while since I've been, but how badly can you screw up scrambled eggs and french toast?

    2. Front Porch on Ocean Drive is not a bad option as well. Reasonable and you can people watch.
