Mothers are so special. They give without receiving, they sacrifice their time and energy, and they love us unconditionally. Plus, they always know that perfect meal or snack to make right when we need it most. This Mother’s Day, forego the macaroni necklace or the store bought card, and treat her to something sweet. Treat her to a really, really good meal that she won’t have to clean up when it’s over.
Here are the best brunch spots in Miami. Near the beach and perfect for Mom.
Yardbird Southern Table & Bar – 1600 Lenox Avenue
Yardbird says their weekend brunch is “foot-stompin’” and “soul-healin’,” and we think that tells you everything you should know. They serve classic Southern dishes with a fresh, farm-to-table type of twist. Try their shrimp ‘n grits, their buttermilk biscuits with honey butter and homemade jam or their fine fried chicken, which comes with honey hot sauce. They also have lighter options like cauliflower mashed potatoes and kale salad.
Café Nikki Miami Beach – 1 Ocean Drive
When you think of what brunch in Miami is supposed to look like, Café Nikki is probably what comes to mind. With their oceanfront outdoor deck, lush palms and cabana-style seats, it’s the perfect opportunity for Mom to experience a little luxury. Sunday brunch is from 11am to 4pm, and they serve dishes like freshly made waffles with chocolate ganache, fish, roasted potatoes, and even freshly rolled sushi from their sushi and seafood station.
Cibo Wine Bar – 200 South Pointe Drive
Take Mom to Cibo Wine Bar on the beach if you want her to let loose and enjoy herself. As an Italian wine bar and restaurant, they offer a lot of great food and even greater wine. She can make her choice from options like pizza, pasta, soup or salad. Oh, and their brunch special is only $35 per person, which obviously includes champagne.
Big Pink – 157 Collins Avenue
The Big Pink is literally a big pink building, so take Mom here for really good food as well as a fun, casual time. You both can pig out and eat all the amazing breakfast and brunch foods you want, and there won’t be an ounce of judgment about it! They offer dishes like a “giant” homemade biscuit with whipped honey butter, breakfast pizza, a grilled veggie and brie omelette, pink pancakes and more. There’s something on the menu for every type of mood! They also offer a variety of cocktails, beers, champagne and wine!
Café del Polo – 2940 Collins Avenue
Café del Polo is located inside our Miami beach hotel, and this option is perfect when you want to give Mom a nice meal plus a nice hotel stay. Our property is right on the beach, so she can still get out and enjoy the excitement of Miami if she chooses…or, if she wants, she can also ignore the world and have a relaxing and quiet day in! Café del Polo offers breakfast and dinner buffets featuring fresh fruit, a selection of drinks and cooked-to-order food like salmon, steak and freshly made pasta. She can also order in and enjoy a Mother’s Day meal all by herself if she wants.
Take her out, or book her a stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Miami Beach, and she’ll forget all about last year’s last-minute gift.
Happy Mother’s Day, Moms!
