Better Brunches: What Separates Out The Best Brunch Spots


Whether you're planning for a family get together over an early lunch or a great weekend morning date, brunch is a great way to get people together for good food and good times. But what separates the best brunch places from the rest? What should you be looking for to ensure you and your family or friends have the best dining experience possible? Next time you're picking out a spot for breakfast, lunch, or both at once, look for these parts of a great brunch restaurant.

  • A great cocktail menu: If you and your friends are heading out for a weekend brunch, make sure you choose a place with cocktail classics. Look for mimosas, bloody marys, and other favorites on the menu to have a drink with your meal and unwind.

  • Options for little ones: For families looking for a great way to get the kids moving earlier on a weekend morning, select a restaurant that has a great kids' menu in addition to delicious meals for the adults. That way, the entire family is satisfied, and your kids will want to come back again and again.

  • Inviting atmosphere: While you might not regularly think of the look of a restaurant as important as the food, the atmosphere of your chosen restaurant can make a surprising difference in your experience. Look for restaurants that have a variety of seating options as well, like outdoor seating; approximately 48% of American diners prefer to eat out during the summer, and outdoor seating can help make this more enjoyable.

  • Brunch menu classics: Of course, it isn't a truly great dining experience unless the food lives up to expectations. A great brunch place will have all of the classics you expect from a late breakfast or early lunch, plus a few unique dishes that separate it out from the competition. This way, both those looking for breakfast and those looking for lunch will have a good amount of options to choose from for their meal.

Finding the best brunch restaurant for you and your family or friends can be a challenge, but this list can help simplify the process of picking a place to eat for your breakfast or lunch.
