Ten Best 2015 New Year's Day Brunches in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

Everybody loves brunch. It's all the bacony, eggy, pancakey, greasy glory of breakfast with none of the early rising, plus a side of lunch items and a wink to happy hour. In South Florida, with beautiful weather year-round, it's a great excuse to get out in the sun and dabble in a little day drinking -- and throw back some fabulous breakfast fare -- before the workweek grind begins again.

New Year's Day presents the perfect opportunity to keep the previous night's buzz going (or recover with some hair of the dog) as you celebrate the first day of 2015. So set the tone for the next 365 days of eating with a delectable brunch buffet, a mimosa in hand, and maybe even a dip in the Atlantic Ocean.

The following ten Broward and Palm Beach restaurants have everything you need to make January 1 a fresh start.
