As the days grow longer (and uncomfortably hotter), a bevy of Miami eateries have launched new or improved weekend brunches. Along the Miami River or overlooking the downtown skyline, dine on everything from caramelized waffles and serrano ham croquettes to breakfast sausage burritos and lobster mac 'n' cheese. Don't forget that many feature bottomless booze too.

These five Miami restaurants offer brunch all weekend long. Take your pick, snag a reservation, and rest easy knowing your Saturday or Sunday late morning will be filled with food, drinks, sunny skies, and moderates temperatures.

With executive chef Anthony Sitek at the helm of Apeiro's kitchen, upgraded brunch service was in order. The Mediterranean-inspired eatery offers a blend of its signature lunch and small dinner plates with necessary breakfast staples like eggs, bacon, and pancakes. For sweets, expect caramelized waffles ($11) topped with wild berries, whipped cream, and maple syrup, and crepes ($10) served alongside Nutella, caramelized bananas, and vanilla gelato. The menu offers varieties of eggs Benedict ($12) and omelets ($10), along with savory plates such as gravlax salmon flatbread ($14), made with pickled cucumber and Greek cream cheese; prime rib gyro ($16) drizzled with tzatziki sauce; and sweet potato and chorizo hash ($10) showered in charred red pepper and caramelized onion. It wouldn't be brunch without booze, and Apeiro lets diners upgrade their meal with $20 bottomless mimosas or bloody marys. Brunch begins at 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Spending Sundays dining at this seafood brasserie and lounge's alluring location, which is situated on the bank of the Miami River, hasn't changed since New Times covered Seaspice's brunch last October. But its menu has seen a batch of enhancements worth mentioning. New plates include roast suckling pig, which is carved and served tableside with yuca gratin, crisp green plantain fries, and pickled beets; a short rib Benedict with a truffle hollandaise; and shrimp-and-eggs casserole, which blends the crustacean, spring leeks, tomatoes, and onions. Brunch runs from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
