Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

Wagons West

Copy Link
Mondays these guys go Italiano, but for the rest of the time it's a good ol' American diner-fare here. They've been around for a while, too, since 1981. Oh and they serve breakfast all day. An understandable favorite.

Sergio's Restaurant

Copy Link
It wouldn't be Miami without a little Latin sprinkled on it. Well, here's all Cuban for you. Opened since 1975, these guys do it the home-cooked way and they promise healthier options, too. Think empanadas, baked.

MLK Soul Food

Copy Link
Off the beaten path, but worth it. Most rave-worthy item: fish and grits. Best time to go: Breakfast.

Burger Bob's

Copy Link
Comfort food, that ever-alluring guilty pleasure, you can find it here. Though its easy to miss it, we highly recommended you don't. Cash only for those Burgers and hot dogs (which is what you'll want when you go).

Coral Bagels

Copy Link
You won't find frills or a fancy spot, but you will find bagels galore, an overwhelmingly large menu, a friendly staff and free flowing coffee. Diner goods.

Big Pink

Copy Link
This South Beach staple is open until 5 a.m., which not only means incredibly large portions of your favorite greasy spoon dishes until the wee hours, but also enough time to lounge around until you can roll yourself out of there.

Jimmy's East-Side Diner

Copy Link
Jimmy's will provide you with a legit old school diner experience. All you have to do is eat. Eat biscuits and gravy, or corn beef hash, or banana pancakes, or anything really. It's all good.

11th Street Diner

Copy Link
Not only does it look like a blast from the past, but it actually is. These guys have been around since 1948 serving up some hefty portions of diner classics. And they're open 24 hours.

Moonlite Diner

Copy Link
This place serves simple, straight-forward diner grub, not an endless amount of it, but just enough. Don't focus on the short menu, though, direct your undivided attention to the milkshakes. Worth it.

S&S Diner - Allen's

Copy Link
Walk into S & S and you'll find where all the locals go. You're also bound to make some friends, at least with the friendly waitresses who've probably worked there upwards of 10 years. "Old-school" doesn't really cut it for this 1938 spot. More like: "time machine".
