90. Pancakes at Sky Grille in Miami Tower
Winners of this past year's Flapjack Flip-Off X, these moist, fluffy, finely crumbed flapjacks, and whatever other breakfast items you may wish to accessorize them with, come at bargain prices (the jacks are $1.29 per, and you decide what that per is, from a single one to your heart's seizure -- I mean content).
Java City coffee alongside packs a jolly wallop, and you can't beat the service. That's because you serve yourself at this cafeteria in the sky -- the 11th floor of the Miami Tower, to be precise, where Sky Grille has operated for years. Panoramic downtown vistas from the exceedingly spacious and comfortable room are unbeatable (unless, that is, you find a restaurant higher than the 11th floor), as is the sprawling outdoor patio among ponds and fronds.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
