1. Café La Trova

*closed till further notice*

Cuban breakfast gets an upgrade at Café La Trova thanks to the efforts of owners Michelle Bernstein and Julio Cabrera. Their new Sunday brunch (11AM to 3PM) is a $55 prix fixe meal ($25 for kids 12 and under) with all the trimmings, as well as one glass of prosecco, daiquiri or mojito. It all starts with an appetizer buffet with a pan-Latin twist that includes fresh ceviche, white gazpacho, Caesar salad with queso fresco and pepitas and breakfast pastries. Diners then get to choose from a menu of seven mains that includes La Trova’s Rancheros, a take on huevos rancheros with crispy tortilla topped with fried eggs and spicy tomato sauce; and the ropa vieja and eggs. Those who want bottomless bloodies and mojitos can do so for a $22 upgrade. There are also specialty cocktails for $12 each. 971 SW Eighth St., Miami, 786.615.4379

2. Dune

*open for take away*

Sundays just got better at Dune thanks to executive chef Edgar Beas’ new dim sum brunch. Every Sunday from 11AM to 3PM, the restaurant offers a variety of six to eight savory dishes ($3 to $12) in a rolling cart that will change weekly. Among the selections are Maine lobster popovers, Bang Bang rock shrimp with kimchi mayo, chicken-fried quail with bacon cheddar chive waffle and lamb ribs. There will also be a rotating selection of desserts including doughnut holes, rice pudding shots and profiteroles. The a la carte menu also features Maine lobster avocado toast with heirloom tomato salad. There are two options for those who want bottomless drinks: $22 for two hours of mimosas and Bellinis, or $24 for two hours of any of the four bloody mary options. Definitely worth the drive!
