Miami’s Most Worthy Waffles, Mapped
Where to dine on the best breakfast item around
1. Southern Fried Chicken & Waffle Melt, Ms Cheezious
This grilled cheese spot has taken chicken and waffles and turned it into a melt using waffles as the bookend to the sandwich. Complete with fried chicken and cheddar on buttermilk waffles with country gravy and maple syrup making for the most portable version of the dish to date.
2. Sweet ‘n Sour Wings & Waffles, Phuc Yea
Think of these waffles as a classic mixed with a Chinese food takeout order. The waffles at Phuc Yea are topped with crispy pig wings that are coated in a sweet and sour sauce with pineapple and bell peppers. Then of course there’s everyone’s favorite kind of syrup: bourbon maple.
3. Duck and Waffle, Sugarcane raw bar grill
Sugarcane raw bar grill in Midtown offers a different take on the poultry pairing with its waffles. This waffle comes with crispy duck leg confit, a sunny side up duck egg, and stone ground mustard maple syrup. While this flavor combo is hard to beat, but for those that prefer traditional waffles — there’s a buttermilk and berry covered waffle on the menu as well.
4. Chocolate Dipped Waffle, Morgans Restaurant
What’s better than a waffle for breakfast? A chocolate covered one, of course. At Morgan’s Restaurant in Wynwood, waffles are dipped in chocolate and covered with ice cream, strawberries, powdered sugar. Making them the perfect choice for those with major sweet tooth.
5. Chicken ’n Waffles, Kush
Once voted the best in Miami, these Belgian waffles come with fried Florida chicken and are topped with chopped bacon, powdered sugar, and served with maple syrup. The restaurant may be on the smaller side with lines out the door, but these waffles are more than worth the wait.
6. Belgian Waffle Platter, Berries in the Grove
With so many options for breakfast, sometimes it’s hard to decide between sweet and savory. Waffles lovers rejoice at Berries in the Grove, because it’s not just a waffle — it’s a waffle platter that comes with all the fixins. Order a waffle and be showered in all the breakfast foods including a Belgian waffle with two eggs and choice of sausage, Canadian bacon, bacon, ham or chicken apple sausage. So many options. So much breakfast.
7. Carrot Cake Waffles, Ariete
Cake for breakfast is always a win, and the waffles at Ariete in Coconut Grove might as well be dessert. These carrot cake waffles are drizzled with sweet cream cheese, cinnamon sugar, and spiced currant syrup, which offer a taste of fall in Miami all year long.
8. Chicken and Waffles, Spring Chicken
The little sister to Miami Beach’s Yardbird recently announced a breakfast menu of its own. Spring Chicken is keeping it Southern and savory with cheddar cheese waffles and crispy chicken tenders, served with a side of minty watermelon and maple syrup.
9. Fried Chicken and Bread Pudding Waffles, Barley
The new classic — chicken and waffles — comes with a serious makeover at Barley. Instead of run-of-the-mill waffles, they are bread pudding waffles. And instead of regular maple syrup, it’s red wine maple syrup. The waffles are then topped with cranberries and crushed pistachios giving it a twist that is anything but boring.
