Miami is pretty obvious about its love affair with brunch. But one of the best things about brunch (besides those bottomless mimosas) are the dishes that satisfy a sweet tooth and make it seem as though we’re having dessert for breakfast. Sure we love our savory eggs and avocado toast but there’s something about those sugar filled French toast dishes that make us feel a little naughty.

Here’s where you can get your sweet fix — all while continually refilling your mimosa glasses — listed in geographical order for your dining pleasure.
