I was on my way to Buffalo Wild Wings in Aventura to watch a game when I noticed the Green Eggs Cafe. My mind immediately went to the Dr. Seuss books I read as a kid.
The place is actually a Philadelphia-born brunch and lunch chain that expanded to Aventura about three years ago. The space is beautifully lit and totally eschews a standard diner look with modernized furniture and accessories throughout.
I put in my first order of Red Velvet Pancakes ($15.00), a cappuccino ($.3.50) and a La Colombe Coffee ($3.00). All three were great.
Smith leans towards the sweets
By far, the BEST THING ON THE MENU is the Crème Brulee French Toast ($13)! The French toast is made from challah bread soaked in a vanilla bean custard sauce and topped with berry compote, vanilla anglaise, and savory maple syrup. I asked for my syrup to be heated and it flowed like the River Jordan!
The French toast is one of those items that is simple, but ridiculously delicious. Definitely one of, if not THE BEST FRENCH TOAST IN MIAMI! Morgan’s in Wynwood is pretty close, but Green Eggs took No. 1. It’s definitely a MUST HAVE.
