It’s the weekend so that means it’s time to do brunch. Atlanta is home to some of the best dining options in the U.S. and with so many great restaurants you are guaranteed to have a great brunch experience just about anywhere you go. With that said, we’ve done our fair share of brunch in the city and we wanted to share with you some of our favorites. Check these out the next time your tummy is asking for some brunch.
Alon’s Bakery & Market
This Atlanta bakery serves up scratch-made favorites with a European twist. If you go to Alon’s, you want to customize your own breakfast sandwich, which is served on a fresh-baked, buttery croissant. If you aren’t in the mood for a sandwich grab a homemade pastry like an apple Danish, flaky dough with a tart apple filling and topped with almond slices; or choose from a variety of bagels – all freshly prepared each morning. Don’t forget to stop by the espresso bar for a hot beverage to fuel your day or your workout that will happen an hour later.
Eclipse di Luna
Head to Eclipse di Luna in Buckhead for brunch every Sunday to indulge in huevos benedicto, churrasco de carne, croquetas de cereal. For the outside the perimeter (OTP) diners, venture to the Dunwoody location to enjoy huevo benedicto con salmon ahumado, pan frances, and tacos de huevo con chorizo. Both locations serve up bottomless mimosas and sangria beginning at 12:30 p.m., as well as half-off bottles of wine.
Enjoy some southern classics at Southern Art and Bourbon Bar. Pamper yourself for Sunday brunch with dishes like Southern Art buttermilk pancakes, Georgia shrimp and grits and crab cake benedict, while sipping on specially crafted cocktails and libations.
Oak Steakhouse is spicing up Atlanta’s Sunday brunch scene. Feast on mouth-watering offerings such as the country fried steak with CAB short rib, two eggs, sausage gravy and home fries. If you aren’t a fan of eggs (like Him) order the shrimp and jalapeño grits with sautéed gulf shrimp, smoked bacon, jalapeno, tomatoes, onion, chives and Anson Mills grits. Everyone wishes brunch was an all-day affair. For the more traditional diner, Oak is home to flawless interpretations of mainstay brunch favorites, including grilled steak & eggs, eggs benedict and the Oak burger.
