10 Best Brunches In Atlanta

For a 10 best, here are some great brunch spots (some are staples, some are very popular at the moment):

8 Arm

This beautiful, white-washed space with tons of pretty, simple details comes from the same chef, Angus Brown, as Octopus Bar in East Atlanta, who unfortunately died suddenly this week. Pastry chef Sarah Dodge whips up gorgeous biscuits, including one with pimento cheese, bacon, and egg, perfect for soaking up any weekend excesses.

Bread & Butterfly

A quaint, European-style café in Inman Park known for smaller breakfast plates like avocado toast, cheeses, and salads.

Hampton & Hudson

A great neighborhood sports bar that serves amazing, elevated food. The hangover fries, which are topped with white bean chile and a fried egg, are legendary.

Two Urban Licks

Right on the Beltline is this killer boozy jazz brunch. At the top of the must-get list are the brisket Benedict with corn and potato hash. Opt for the gorgeous patio when the weather is nice.

South Main Kitchen

Located just outside the city in the suburb of Alpharetta, this Sunday-only brunch is worth the drive. Grab one of the many tables outdoors and definitely order the Brussel sprouts.

Illegal Food

Springing from a pop-up comes this hip, funky (and tiny!) Southern restaurant with brunch that changes weekly. Find over-the-top versions of Southern classics from this innovative chef.

Home Grown

This is where to go for a chicken biscuit. Ask anyone in Atlanta and they'll recommend it. Eat in a classic diner setting — complete with wood paneling and vinyl-covered stools.

Southern Bistro

Swing by for one of the best brunch deals in the city from chef Ron Eyester, who consistently helms popular joints. Pick the $20 option for an app and entrée served with either a mimosa or Bloody Mary. We suggest the shrimp and grits for your entrée; they're killer.

The General Muir

This Atlanta staple has some of the best bagels and baked goods in town with amazing smoked fish.

West Egg  

No brunch list is complete without the most popular brunch in the city. Expect waits that exceed two hours, but the food is worth it. The chilaquiles are our favorite in Atlanta.
