I’d love to add more restaurants in the suburbs that have a dedicated brunch menu – open to suggestions!


* – no special brunch menu, but still perhaps a good place to eat on Sat. and Sun late breakfast/midday

**** – Curry Bowl doesn’t have booze or BYOB, but they do have an Indian buffet starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday and that sounds so delightful that I’m just adding it to this list. S/o to the reader who sent this suggestion!

If I “left something off”, I promise I didn’t do it to offend you. Just leave a comment and I’ll get it added. #TheMoreTheMerrier

Spots like Blue Plate Cafe, Brother Juniper’s, Bryant’s Breakfast, Pancake Shop are more in the breakfast category but folks still love to eat there for brunch. Just FYI!

      Hi Mark, Do you mean this post that you just commented on (80+ places to each brunch)? If so then yes, it’s the latest list of brunch places. It was originally published in January but it has been updated multiple times since then. Every time I find out about a new place or a place that’s closed, I update this. Hope this helps!
