In order to be to a yachtie, you need to be good at two things: brunch and brunch. Staying in the crew house in Fort Lauderdale is the perfect time to become a brunch connoisseur because Fort Lauderdale is absolutely littered with amazing brunch spots. Plus, you will be living with other yachties so there is no excuse to skip out on a Sunday brunch. Here are a few of our favorite brunch spots in Fort Lauderdale that are just an uber ride away from the crew house:
Boatyard is definitely one of the more posh places to go for brunch. It is right on the intercoastal with a beautiful patio for sipping on some bottomless mimosas or a build your own bloody mary ($25 per person, but definitely worth it). There is also an omelet station and an eggs benedict bar where you can choose between classic, crab, or a salmon eggs benedict.
Tap 42 is a yachtie classic. Whether you are there for ladies’ night or Sunday brunch, you won’t be disappointed. With bottomless mimosas, bloody mary’s, and funky Buddha drafts you can easily spend the whole day basking on the patio. Give their smashed avocado toast a try if you’re in the mood for savory, or satisfy that sweet tooth with their old school banana French toast.
The Foxy Brown is where Sunday brunch meets a south Florida art gallery—but the only art you’ll find here is the food. They have an ever changing menu of unique and delicious specials making you want to come back every weekend to gorge yourself. One weekend you might find unicorn pancakes on the menu, while the next weekend is a breakfast pizza slathered in peppery gravy.
The classic Italian restaurant knows how to do brunch. With their $12 bottomless bellinis, unlimited mimosas, and infinite aperol spritzes you can start your weekend off right (and save a few bucks). They put an Italian twist on their sweet and savory brunch menu like eggs al forno on oven roasted polenta and pandoro French toast with fruit compote.
