While many people claim that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, they certainly underestimate the fact that it can also be the most fun. When you mix mimosas, delicious coffee and a thick stack of pancakes together, what’s not to love? Especially when you are able to sleep in late to enjoy it. We’re talking about the beauty of brunch—a midday meal that you can relish each and every weekend. We love a good brunch with all the fixins, and Georgia sure has some worthy contenders for the best. Check out these 15 brunch restaraunts throughout the state that are worth savoring.
1. The Bee's Knees—211 10th St, Augusta, GA 30901
What normally is a tapas bar in Downtown Augusta is also known for their killer Sunday brunch. The ingredients are fresh, local, seasonal and sustainable. (Not to mention delicious.)
2. Local Three Kitchen & Bar—3290 Northside Pkwy, Ste 120, Atlanta, GA 30327
Yes, it seems fancy. Yes, they have charcuterie plates. BUT, for $24pp, you can basically eat as much as you want: Dark Chocolate Buttermilk Pancakes, Creamy Tomato Soup, Bacon and Cheddar Mac n' Cheese. Top it all off with a House-Made White Raspberry Sangria, aptly dubbed the Purple Rain.
3. Serpas—659 Auburn Ave NE, Ste 501, Atlanta, GA 30312
The brunch menu at Serpas is comprehensive to say the least. From drink favorites like the
Spicy Cat Scratch Mary to plate specials like the eggplant hush puppies, it's hard not to keep coming back every weekend.
4. Mama's Boy Restaurant—197 Oak St, Athens, GA 30601
Everyone always raves about the biscuits at Mama's Boy Restaurant. Not only are they savory and moist, but they also are gargantuan. Slap that bad boy with some jam and you're set.
5. Flying Biscuit Cafe—1655 Mclendon Ave, Atlanta, GA 30307
What we love about Flying Biscuit Cafe is that they cater to all different types of diets. They have Gluten free options like the Veggie Scramble or the Clifton Omelette, as well as vegan options like the Tofu Scramble or vegan BBQ burrito. Top it off with some fresh O.J., and you're in business.
6. Huey's On the River—115 E River St, Savannah, GA 31401
The brunch menu at Huey's is amazing and the Bloody Mary's are huge, but we need to talk about the beignets. They are WORLD FAMOUS, and a must-have. Make sure you get the homemade praline sauce, too. It's warm and gooey and rich.
7. The Cafe at the Ritz-Calrton—The Ritz-carlton Buckhead, 3434 Peachtree Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30326
We're not going to sugarcoat this one, it's pricey. But, for $32 pp, you get the Buckhead Breakfast Buffet which features a ton of house specialties, like house smoked
salmon, fresh fruits, and eggs benedict. If you're looking to splurge, make The Cafe at the Ritz your go-to spot.
8. Wolf Mountain Vineyard—180 Wolf Mountain Trl, Dahlonega, GA 30533
Here's the beauty of brunch at Wolf Mountain Vineyards: You know you'll always have an incredible wine pairing. But, to be fair, their food is always on point, with brunch changing each and every month.
9. Cafe Frederica—110 Sylvan Dr, St. Simons Island, GA 31522
Cafe Frederica is a bit off the beaten path, which means mostly locals frequent this place. A must-try when you visit for brunch: the Blueberry Stuffed French Toast or the Eggs Benedict with Corned Beef Hash.
10. Driftaway Cafe—7400 Skidaway Rd, Ste D, Savannah, GA 31406
The delectable brunch at Driftaway Cafe is served Saturday and Sunday until 2pm. You can order up classic breakfast options, or spice it up a bit with some coastal cuisine. Oh, and their craft beer options are pretty sensational, too.
11. One Eared Stag—1029 Edgewood Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307
One Eared Stag pairs classic brunch with more modern flare. You can choose between hot options, cold options, or just good old fashioned brunch options. Make sure to try the Redneck Mimosa for a nice brunch twist.
12. Heirloom Cafe—815 N Chase St, Athens, GA 30601
What's cool about Heirloom Cafe is that their menu changes with the seasons, so you know the food will always be fresh. Freshness paired with unique ingredients, like the peanut butter drizzled pancakes pictured above...swoon.
13. Twang Southern Tastes & Sounds—342 Rose Ave, Payne, GA 31204
The “Big Bad Sunday Brunch”, as it's known, is something to be marveled. The smoked Gouda grits are a crowd favorite, along with the chicken & waffles. Plus, they have a very large, and very popular Bloody Mary bar.
14. West Egg Cafe—1100 Howell Mill Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30318
West Egg Cafe brings some intense flavor to the table every time brunch is served. Besides the classic Benedict options, there also are fan favorites like the Challah French Toast and Short Rib Hash. YUM.
