Balans Miami

International design with a decidedly European-influenced menu.

What we had:

I had the chorizo con papas--two fried eggs with spicy chorizo, home fries & salsa fresca. Not a bad breakfast, though the chorizo got to be a little much toward the end. I was glad to have the salsa to cut the grease.

My DH had 3 big, light & fluffy pancakes with really great bacon. We think the bacon is deep fried, and if so, that is a great way to go. The bacon came out very crispy, curly & uniformly cooked.


The patio is a nice space to relax--interesting mix of Thai, organic natural wood shapes, swings to sit on & lounge seating.


Not bad.

Overall impressions:

I want to go back for drinks some evening. The drinks by the pitcher selection is good, and although the mixed drinks are $11, the menu looked inviting.

A good relaxed place to grab a bite or take a load off.
