Preston’s Market at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel offers delicious, farm-to-table ingredients and great views of the pool and ocean from the patio. You’ll want to wake up for breakfast every morning!

A few weeks ago I was in Miami, and stayed at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. It’s a wonderful, beachside property in the heart of Miami Beach, and just blocks from South Beach. Last week I reviewed my overall stay at the hotel.
I had a LONG and stressful travel day to Miami. I should have landed in Miami at 6:30PM on Saturday evening, but a broken plane and 5-hour delay in Dallas got me to the hotel at 1AM instead. As you can imagine, it was all I could do to fall into bed as soon as I got to my room. I did receive a wonderful welcome amenity in my room, but I didn’t try any of it until the next morning.
The Loews Miami Beach Hotel offers a variety of dining options for hotel guests and visitors.
- Miami Joe’s Coffee Co., a grab-and-go convenience shop and coffee bar
- Preston’s Market, a breakfast restaurant
- Nautilus Bar & Grill, a poolside restaurant
- Bar Collins, a lounge-style restaurant
- Lure Fishbar, a fine dining restaurant
I often eat at restaurants off-site when I travel, but with all of the great options at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel, you really don’t have to leave the hotel at all. Preston’s Market and Nautilus Bar & Grill also offer kid-friendly menus, so it’s very convenient when traveling with children.
On Sunday morning, we had breakfast at Preston’s Market. Preston’s Market is on the main floor of the hotel, just beyond Bar Collins. The restaurant is open for breakfast, until 11AM weekdays and 12 noon on Saturday and Sunday.
The large main dining room features light and bright fixtures and furniture, and beautiful artwork on the walls. The outdoor patio covers 2 sides of the restaurant, and the tables on the back portion of the patio look out over the pool and out to the ocean.
We arrived at about 10:30AM, and had our choice to sit inside or outside. We sat out on the patio, at a corner table. It was already super hot, but sometimes you have to sacrifice for the views. The breeze off the ocean, and the lowered retractable shade, did provide some relief from the heat.
Our server, Michelle, greeted us immediately, and brought water for both of us and coffee for me. Normally I wouldn’t drink hot coffee outside in the heat, but I woke up earlier than I planned so I needed the caffeine. I had walked in with a water bottle, and asked her to throw it away. Instead, she offered to fill it for me before we left. Now that is great customer service!
The Loews Miami Beach Hotel has a wonderful Flavor Miami concept, to showcase the cuisine and culture of Florida throughout the restaurants and lounges in the hotel. Preston’s Market is a farm-to-table restaurant that features products by local artisans, including Zak the Baker, Miami Smokers, Winter Park Dairy, Uriah’s Urban Farm, and Bee My Honey.
The Preston’s Market menu includes a breakfast buffet, as well as a la carte menu items. We briefly considered the buffet, but both decided to go a la carte. The a la carte menu includes breads & pastries, griddles, market flavors, gluten free options, farm fresh egg dishes, and market alternatives. Beverages include coffee, tea, and organic cold pressed juices.
Mike got the Preston’s Market Croissant
The egg dishes all come with potatoes on the side. I think hash browns or mini diced potatoes at breakfast, so the potato wedges are a unique twist. The croissant sandwich is delicious, and the croissant is flaky and buttery. Most restaurant sandwiches have just a few slices of avocado; the Preston’s Market Croissant has almost half an avocado.
I don’t do well with large menus. Even though the Preston’s Market menu isn’t huge, I still couldn’t make a final decision. After some back and forth, plus help from our server, I decided on the Baked Eggs Casserole
I love the presentation in the cast-iron skillet, as well as the serving board.
Our sever said the Baked Eggs Casserole is like a quiche, so I wasn’t expecting this look. Plus, I don’t usually like chunks of cooked tomatoes. However, one bite and I changed my tune. The combination of tomatoes, peppers and onion has a subtle kick, and a wonderful smoky flavor. The chunks of cheese provide a delicious contrast in texture, and the mild flavor does not compete with the rest of the dish. I ate a couple of bites of the baked eggs by itself, and then ate the rest as topping on the bread. The toasted and buttered bread holds up really well to the perfectly cooked eggs. I could have easily eaten a few more slices of the bread.
We only ate at Preston’s Market once during our stay, because after our conference began we didn’t have time for a sit-down breakfast in the morning. But if we had more time, I definitely would have eaten there more often. The food is delicious, our server was friendly, engaging and efficient, and the view can’t be beat when you sit on the patio.
