Every brunch fan should have these 5 Coconut Grove spots on their list


Whether you’re there for the booze or the bites, these five spots in Coconut Grove will change your weekend brunch ritual. 


1. GreenStreet Cafe

Where: 3468 Main Highway, Coconut Grove

The brunch: definitely a Coconut Grove staple, GreenStreet Cafe is as lively for brunch as it is for happy hour. Guests can enjoy an amazing range of breakfast entrees ranging from oversized omelettes and pancakes to Nutella french toast, or stick to entrees like the lamburger or blackened dolphin.

The booze: the bloody mary’s here may be the best in all of Miami, but if you’re looking for something stiff to go with your food, opt for Purple Dragon, made with Herradura Tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, creme de cassis, agave nectar, cayenne pepper, and ginger beer. Or, keep it simple with a Strawberry Basil Lemonade, made with basil leaves, strawberries, and citron vodka. 

The vibe: see and be seen. 

The prices: $$


2. Lulu In The Grove

Where: 3105 Commodore Plaza, Miami

The brunch: indulge in an extensive omelette and waffle selection, as well as American brunch classics like chicken and waffles, and Lulu’s own special benedict. Or, opt for something heavier like the churrasco or the Lulu Burger. 

The booze: looking for a true breakfast cocktail? Try Lulu’s Wake ‘N’ Bacon, featuring bacon-infused Absolut and homemade Bloody Mary mix. Or, go for the elegant After Sunrise, made with Segura Viudas brut and blood orange. For a loaded spin off a mimosa, the Manmosa includes coconut rum, orange juice and JBW El Jefe. 

The vibe: rustic chic.

The prices: $$

3. Glass & Vine

Where: 2820 McFarlane Road, Miami

The brunch: helmed by Eating House’s Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli, the brunch menu at Glass & Vine is short and simple, but it covers all the bases (with a locally-sourced, gourmand twist). Brunchers can make their way from a sweet and spicy watermelon salad, made with lima crema, cotija cheese, cilantro and jalapeno, to a ZTB tartine of local stracciatella with “freezer jam.” There’s even a Broccoli cheeseburger on the menu, served on a buttered bun with buttermilk sauce, of course. 

The booze: you won’t find any bottomless specials here, but you will find craft Bloody Marys, sangria and mimosas for $10 each, along with an assortment of Lebanese and French rose. Oh you fancy, huh?

The vibe: whimsical and refined.

4. Berries In The Grove

Where: 2884 SW 27th Avenue, Miami

The brunch: Berries offers traditional brunch Saturdays and Sundays, featuring homestyle egg, pancake and french toast platters, five gourmet omelettes, and well-rounded lunch options. 

The booze: pair your brunch selection with a Berries Moscow Mule, made with Russian Standard vodka, Fever Tree Ginger Beer and lime, or power up with a Super Fruit Margarita, made with VeevAcai, Partida Tequila, agave nectar and citrus juices. Or, go the virgin route and choose from over 15 shakes and fresh smoothies. 

The vibe: historical polish.

5. Ariete

Where: 3540 Main Highway, Miami

The brunch: limited thought it may seem, Ariete’s brunch menu includes every bruncher’s essential food groups: pancakes, eggs, sandwiches and a token burger. If you’re feeling adventurous, indulge in the Carrot Cake Waffles, made with cream cheese crema, cinnamon sugar and spiced currant syrup, or the Lobster Roll, served with celery, old bay, and tarragon. In need of a sweet fix and a pick-me-up? Go for the Cafe Con Leche ice pop. 

The booze: if you’re in the mood for a cocktail to top off your dish selection, try the refreshing Agua De Coco, with Bacardi, coconut water, lime and mint. In need of something stronger? Order El Lobo, with mezcal/tequila, strawberry puree, lemon juice, agave, jalapeno, tajin and a lime wedge. 

The vibe: peaceful and low-key.
