Miami Millennials Spend Way too Much on Sunday Brunch and Eating Out.
Seems like everywhere you look now on a typical Miami Sunday afternoon, everyone on your Instagram, Snapchat, or other noted social media platform has posted either a picture or story from Tap 42 or any other Miami brunch hot spot showing off their fancy green egg Benedict accompanied with endless rounds of thirst quenching sangrias and mimosas. These typical Sunday brunches don't run cheap in Miami, as a simple smashed avocado toast can end up costing you as much as $15 a plate and that's without including tip or parking. According to Forbes, millennials spend about 44% of their food dollars-or $2,921 annually on eating out including brunch, in concordance with the Food Institute’s analysis of the United States Department of Agriculture’s food expenditure data. Those figures represent a 10.7 percent increase in eating out alone from millennials since the year 2010. In Miami, it has become a trend to eat out almost every Sunday at a typical Miami brunch venue and has also become the norm for millennials to spend substantial portions of their biweekly paychecks on eating out with friends in South Florida.
