Breakfast at Bahia Cabana Fort Lauderdale

Bahia Cabana

As quoted from my book, Food Lovers’ Guide to Miami & Fort Lauderdale (Globe Pequot Press $14.95) I stated:

“Bahia Cabana is an archetypal Fort Lauderdale beach bar serving just that: beach bar food, frozen drinks, and ice-cold beers. Located on a boat marina there is much visual activity to entertain you while chowing on your mozzarella sticks and buffalo wings. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night meetups, Bahia Cabana makes such earnest claims such as the “World’s Best” and “Fort Lauderdale’s Largest” that it’s hard not to find them somewhat entertainingly endearing. Bahia Cabana is a scene to be experienced.”

Bahia Cabana has a boastful über casual way about itself that makes me smile out loud. It’s housed adjacent to the Fort Lauderdale Beach Days Inn, this alone should give you some indication as to what you’re in for.

Bahia Cabana Sunday Breakfast Special

Twice now in the past month I’ve gone with friends to Bahia Cabana for Sunday Breakfast. If you’re looking for foie gras Benedict with a Champagne chaser it’s not going to happen here. What you will find is the Sunday Breakfast special for $14.95 serving unlimited Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas from 7am-11am. You have your choice of a 3-item omelet, hash browns and toast or Eggs Benedict. I ordered the omelet both times with Bloody Mary’s; my friends did the mimosas and Eggs Benedict. I personally recommend getting the omelet. The Sunday morning bartender makes a fine Bloody Mary; so much so, I usually have to partake in adult naptime halfway through my afternoon. As luck would have it, Freddie waited on us both times, she was efficient, accommodating and friendly. The servers along with the bussers and food expediters all work together as a team; polite and obliging.

Bloody Mary, Bahia Cabana

Competent service, food that does the trick, reasonable prices and complimentary valet parking; no location price gouging going on here. While all this is key, it’s the location that draws people in like lemmings, everything else simply keeps you there. Located smack dab on the intracoastal [marina] at Bahia Mar with unobstructed views of exactly what Sundays in South Florida should look like. If you’re not a drinker then this Sunday Breakfast special is not for you, breakfast items range in price from $3.95 – $12.95 with the majority of the menu items falling into the $4.95-$6.95 price range.
