Miami has been long known as one of the top destinations for cuisine and food tourism in the United States.
A melting pot of many cultures, Miami offers delectable cuisines from some of the world’s top chefs. Breakfast in Miami is one of the most sought-after meals of the day.
Whether it is a quick Cuban coffee or a full-on brunch buffet, Miami offers an almost unlimited number of breakfast options for every palate.
The key to discovering the ideal breakfast in Miami is to find one that satisfies your cravings while also providing the positive energy needed to start your day. From a Monday morning workday to a leisurely Sunday brunch, breakfast in Miami really is the most important meal of the day!
The Best Part of Breakfast in Miami…is a Strong Special Cuban Coffee
Like most major cities, Miami has no shortage of national chain coffee shops. However, Miami also offers some of the best Cuban coffee outside of Cuba.
What Makes Cuban Coffee So Special?
Cuban coffee beans could come from Cuba’s Sierra Maestra Mountains, which are located in the eastern part of the country. This region provides favorable growing conditions for cultivating coffee.
The region’s fertile, reddish-brown soils are rich with humus and other nutrients that allow for coffee cultivation without the need for chemical fertilizers.
Cuba’s environment is also very good for growing sugar, which is why sugar is not only a major ingredient in many of Cuba’s famous desserts, but also an added ingredient to sweeten up a little our dark roast coffee. At Karla Bakery, our coffee is served both hot and cold, but always fresh and always strong!
Rush Hour Sustenance
Mornings can be a drag but that doesn’t mean breakfast has to be as well! Many health experts agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast kick-starts your metabolism, helping you burn calories throughout the day. It also gives you the energy you need to get things done and helps you focus at work or at school. Many studies have linked eating breakfast to good health, including better memory and concentration, lower levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol, plus reduced chances of getting diabetes, heart disease, and being overweight.
While these are reasons why breakfast is the most important meal of the day, the key is to also eat a breakfast that will energize and invigorate you.
Almost all of our breakfast dishes from our fried eggs to our ham, cheese, and egg croissants are packed with protein, which has been shown to be a great source of lasting energy. And if you do want a quick sugar fix first thing in the morning before starting your day, don’t worry, we won’t judge! We’ll just point you to our fresh-baked pastries. If you’re looking to impress your family or coworkers, we suggest picking up an assortment of our pastelitos or other sweets on the way home or into the office.
On the way to catch an early morning flight? Our Bakery in West Flagler location is near Miami International Airport within some minutes reach, So, if you don’t want to roll the dice with airport food, grab a sweet cake, flan, or cookie to go for your travels!
Brunch with Friends
Breakfast in Miami is best enjoyed with friends and family! In recent years, the popularity of brunch has dramatically increased.
The city of Miami offers dozens of brunch spots, cafes, and restaurants in almost every cuisine imaginable. Brunch and breakfast are increasingly gaining popularity in terms of menu items as well as a time to socialize with friends and family.
At Karla Bakery, our cafes are designed to mimic traditional Cuban cafes where people would spend hours talking, lounging, listening to music, and perhaps enjoying a Cuban cigar with friends. While our cafes (like all restaurants in Miami) don’t allow smoking, they are reminiscent of Havana’s iconic cafes in every other way.
From the vibrant colors to the lush artwork to the Cuban music (not to mention our delicious sandwiches, pastries, and other menu items), all of our six Miami locations provide an authentic Cuban brunch experience to remember!
Shopping expedition with friends? Our Fontainebleau location is right across the street from the Mall of the Americas and is the perfect way to start your fun-filled shopping day. So pull up a chair, a friend (or two) and indulge with an authentic croquette or Cuban sandwich with a fresh latte. Best of all, our appetizers are great for sharing with friends!
A Family Breakfast in Miami
Cuban families are traditionally very large and mealtime is a special time — especially weekend breakfasts. While most American families nowadays aren’t as big as most Cuban families of yesteryear, we still believe that every family breakfast in Miami should be filled with love — and good food! While our cafes can accommodate many families, our online ordering system makes ordering for your family a breeze. If you’d prefer to eat in the comfort of your own home, with our online ordering system you can have your breakfast delivered or come pick it up at any of our six locations.

Our pastry trays, which are a combination of our most popular pastry offerings including our assorted pastelito tray, Merengue Puffs tray, and the Bandeja de Mini Dulces Surtidos, which is a combination of some of our top-selling sweets, are sure to be a hit for your family’s morning event.
