6 Restaurants That Are Somehow Amazing at Breakfast, Lunch *and* Dinner
You love dinner at Habitat, but have you tried the brunch? And you know Bird & Bone is the place to grab fried chicken, but have you stopped by for smoothies and avocado toast? These six Miami restaurants are culinary triple threats: We love them morning, noon and night.
This tri-level Italian food hall in Brickell is already one of our favorite places to grab lunch, so we were stoked to discover it’s open for breakfast and dinner, serving up pastries baked on site, wood-oven pizzas, charcuterie boards and freshly made pasta. Sounds like a totally valid excuse to take a personal day, in our opinion.

Located at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Lightkeepers is the place you love to take clients for a business lunch (or, if you’re the client, the place you love to be taken). The waterfront restaurant’s hearty comfort food—we die for the fish and chips with Key West snapper and a side of warm biscuits—is exactly what we want, no matter the time of day.

It sits at the heart of South Beach inside the 1 Hotel and also happens to have one of the most beautiful rooftops in town, so we’re game for any excuse to linger a little longer at Habitat. Casual eats like croquetas de jamón and a grouper sandwich rule the daytime menu, but come dinnertime, it’s all about sophisticated platings of octopus a la plancha and Skuna Bay salmon. We may just have to spend the night at one of the rooms. And weekend brunch? We’ll take the French-toast sticks and an avocado tartine topped with Manchego and pumpkin romesco.

Hank & Harry’s
With our favorite foods (bagels and deli sandwiches) on lock, Hank & Harry’s is a place we’d happily stay all day and well past closing time. When served on a perfectly chewy everything bagel, the egg and cheese sandwich is how we wish we could start every morning. That whole perfectly chewy thing carries through to the half-pound sandwiches of corned beef or pastrami, which makes for a hearty evening meal.
Bird & Bone
With a spacious patio, a bright and airy interior and a menu that doesn’t disappoint at any time of day, Richard Hales’s Bird & Bone at the Confidante is absolute perfection. The menu offers something for everyone, whether you’re craving sweet-potato pancakes, a fresh and light deviled kale salad or hot chicken with Florida honey and Zak the Baker bread. How about we stay all day and sample one of each?

This iconic restaurant speaks for itself. Stop in before work for a café con leche, swing by at lunchtime for a classic Cubano or visit in the evening for a platter of white rice, plantains and pulled pork. Deliciousness from morning 'til night.
