I got $100 in compensation when this was presented to me for breakfast. It's the afternoon snack tray but they seem to be doing this on UAX breakfast flights when leaving non-hub cities.

If you want to have a little adventure, could take a quick cab/Uber/Lyft ride over to Jaxson's in Dania Beach for ice cream. A South Florida institution. You can get there in 5-10 minutes.
