Wouldn’t you go if you got an invite to try the Insane Double Stack Rainbow Pancakes? And if that didn’t get you going, how about a Donut Burger, Cookie Monster milkshake or smoking Mimosa Goblet? It sure got my family going to Sugar Factory Miami on Ocean Drive for much needed good, crazy fun for all ages. They’re all part of the new breakfast menu served from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in their new location. You have to see these pics to believe it!!!
The extensive Sugar Factory Miami menu has everything. It is divided into appetizers, soups and salads, sandwiches, monster burgers, grill items, waffles, old fashioned milkshakes and insane milkshakes, pastas, sides, old fashioned sundaes for two, and dessert menu. Portions are large, and if the dish can be over the top, it is. But don’t think they sacrifice quality for quantity. Everything we had was made with quality ingredients.
Whatever you do you must have the pancakes. They’re light, fluffy and tasty. They come with the expected butter and warm maple syrup but also chocolate chips, gummy bears, strawberries and whipped cream with – of course, rainbow sprinkles ($23). It comes with a rubber duckie. We were told we had to have the buttermilk fried chicken and waffles ($28).
I’m a tough critic when it comes to fried chicken, usually disappointed, but this was tops — freshly made, super crispy skin, and moist, quality chicken. It comes teamed with waffles or served in a waffle sandwich. For a low caloric option (all relative), we chose one of the grill selections, churrasco with plantains, fried eggs and chimichurri sauce. Mr. W, the meat guru, gave it solid marks.
All of this whetted our thirst, so we had the formidable task of choosing among 36 cocktails. Our selection? The pink paloma margarita. It, too is a show. It’s smoked at the table. Made of white tequila, triple sec, fresh lime juice, ruby red grapefruit juice and lemon lime soda, it’s very refreshing. You can get your candy fix in, too, since the “garnish” is sour look alike grapefruit gummy slices and pink gummy bears float at the bottom ($43).
With milkshakes a big menu item, we had to try one of those. Plus, they’re from a dedicated milkshake bar inside that’s part of the decor. We opted for the Cookie Monster Make a Wish ($21). OMG was that wild. The oversize mug was coated in dark chocolate with chocolate chip cookie bits affixed to the chocolate. Cookies and cream ice cream are blended with vanilla sauce, topped by a blue frosted donut with an accompanying blue buttercream cupcake. The milkshake was very creamy and delicious.
Thanks to the pedestrian conversion of Ocean Drive from 5th to 15th Streets, Sugar Factory has set up sidewalk dining with umbrella covered tables along with a roof covered terrace that’s cooled with fans. The Sugar Factory, 1060 Ocean Drive, is open for breakfast, brunch, and dinner seven days a week: Monday – Friday: 11am – 10pm; Saturday – Sunday: 9AM – 10pm.
Unable to eat any more, we departed. Fortunately we had a walk to the car. A great time was had by all and yours truly took a nap on arriving home!
