The Little Hen - Miami, Florida

One of Miami’s most popular brunch spots, the Little Hen is a contemporary breakfast and brunch spot with English-inspired touches. Its rosy pink and floral decor is scattered around the establishment and immediately makes you feel like you’ve entered a brunch haven.

The Little Hen is known for their rose petal pancakes, which have roses sprinkled on top and within a light pink fluffy short stack. There are plenty of brunch options, and you’ll love having brunch with some of your closest girls here.

I visited this brunch spot myself and can confirm that it is a place you want to stop by when passing through South Florida.

Sunday Gathering Table - Saint Augustine

St. Augustine is a small town in Florida with a lot to do, so if you ever find yourself in town and are up for a family-friendly brunch vibe, the Sunday Gathering Table is where you’ll want to be.

The Sunday Gathering Table is a home turned into a cozy restaurant serving fresh and local ingredients. There is a beautiful outdoor courtyard where guests can enjoy dining.

From St. Augustine Shrimp Cobb to creamy grits, you will have plenty of options when you brunch at the Sunday Gathering Table.

With comfty white sofas and seating, once you’ve settled in, you won’t want to leave. Bar 17 Bistro’s menu is more suited for small bites and lunch, so if you’re in the mood for breakfast foods keep this in mind!

Personally loved Florida until they started a war with Black and Brown folk. Still have a home there. But refuse to add another dollar or penny to that economy while DeathSantis is still ruling. Thanks for the suggestions, but will have to pass for now. Stay WOKE #boycottFlorida✊🏽
