If you’re in town for Miami Music Week right now, chances are food is low on your list of priorities. Totally understandable. Once the party starts, it’s about keeping the buzz going. Which is why this year, SIXTY wants to present you with the best spots to score an all-day breakfast in Miami, so you can wake up at your leisure and tuck into something that will sustain you well into the evening. Miami Music Week is a marathon, not a sprint. Here’s where to fuel up.
You can see Wynwood Diner from practically a mile away. Its graffitied exterior is a raucous invitation to come inside, where the dining room is comparatively subdued—though equally eclectic. As for what’s on the all-day plate, so to speak, their diner fare is of the updated variety, with all the avocado and multigrain toast you can wish for. Those looking to soak up last night’s sin (and get a sugar high in the process) would be advised to order a stack of buttermilk pancakes or their churro waffle topped with berries and whipped cream.

Alright, so Miam Cafe doesn’t exactly serve a full breakfast menu all day, but it does serve said menu (think dishes like a breakfast sandwich with turkey bacon, organic omelette, organic chia pudding) until 11:30 a.m. For those later Miami Music Week risers, Miam, also located in the trendy Wynwood District, offers an edited menu of four staples, like a very satisfying breakfast burrito and an avocado tartine with poached egg.

For anyone who’s ever had a hangover, you know that sometimes the only thing that’ll make you feel like a real human again is a bagel sandwich. In the event that you find yourself in such a state during Miami Music Week, find one of El Bagel’s food trucks, pronto. (Their schedule and location can be found via Instagram here.) Their menu of mile-high sandies includes elevated standards like the Bacon Egg and Cheese (B.E.G.) and Lox Supreme. Come hungry—portions are generous.
Jimmy’s Eastside Diner
Jimmy’s Eastside Diner is a cherished location institution with an indie pedigree. (The location was featured in 2016’s Oscar-winning film, Moonlight.) Expect nothing fancy here, just simple, unfussy diner food served in an equally unfussy environment. Vinyl booths, check. Laminate counters, check. Plates filled with the eggs, toast, and sausage of your childhood? Check and check.

An establishment that takes its all-day ethos so far, it’s even in the name. There’s been a lot of buzz about ALL DAY since it opened in 2016, specifically in regards to its caffeinated beverages. The New York Times calls it a “must-visit” for coffee fanatics. Vogue deemed its brew “the best cup of coffee in Miami.” As for food, ALL DAY serves everything from soft scrambles to pan con croquetas from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the weekday, and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the weekends.

If you’re taking part in the fun at the Spinnin’ Hotel fest at Nautilus and you want to stay nearby, Big Pink offers all-day breakfast right in the heart of South Beach. So named for its Pepto-colored exterior, the restaurant—owned and operated by famed restaurateur Myles Chefetz since 1996—is a retro-style diner that’s great for large groups. Sit down at one of their long communal tables and tear into something off their “Breakfast Anytime” menu, which leans into hearty classics like hot malted waffles, egg sandwiches, and corned beef hash.
