Ah, #brunchlife: The late morning meal that's one part breakfast and one part lunch (and one of the only times it's acceptable — and even encouraged — to drink before noon).

For many South Floridians, there's no better way to spend a weekend morning or afternoon than brunching. And while almost any brunch will do — some eggs Benedict or a pile of pancakes washed down with a couple mimosas — there are a few brunches out there so ridiculous, so lavish, so crazy that they can make you feel like you're royalty (or simply partying the night away in the middle of the day). 

When it comes to brunch in South Florida. you either have to be the best — or different from the rest. That's where this list comes in. For these places, the more outrageous the offerings, prices, and drink specials, the better the brunch.

The menu covers it all: everything from the raw bar and salad bar to a meat carving station and more than 20 types of sushi rolls and sashimi — all for $16.95 per person. On Sunday, you can keep it all-American with traditional breakfast options that include pancakes, organic scrambled eggs, French toast, and a make-your-own omelet, waffle, or crepe station. A full liquor bar also offers endless drink options with mimosas and bloody marys, but sake, wine, beer, and mixed drinks are also available. The best part? You can enjoy it all in unlimited quantities for as long as you like.

Why it's outrageous: You can order a sampler platter of the entire brunch menu.

What will it be? You can order a pancake-topped breakfast burger (topped with a sweet potato pancake, egg, cheese, and bacon) or a killer breakfast ramen (served with a scallion pancake, pork belly, sausage, and a sunny-side-up egg). There's a divine Bananas Foster French toast, too. And chicken-and-waffle sliders prepared with a cayenne maple syrup will make you crave them all week. Then it hits you: It's a frustrating situation coming upon a brunch menu with so many great options that it's hard to choose just one. But at BC Cafe in Davie, you don't have to. Instead, the eatery offers a unique solution during weekend brunch served Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with its sampler platter, a half-portion of each menu item delivered to you on a giant plate. Finish it up with the addition of the $12 bottomless booze be it a mimosa, bellini, or the restaurant's own cranberry punch. It's probably the easiest decision you'll make all day.
