Where Do I Go For Brunch In Atlanta?

The weekend comes and goes in a blink of an eye, but I always make time for Sunday brunch. So when my friends text me last minute "where should I go to brunch?" I hit them with this list you're about to check out.

Bon appétit!

Poor Calvin's

The name doesn't speak for the amazing dining experience at Poor Calvin's. There are options to sit inside or outside and it's the perfect place for a date. Not to mention they serve the best sangria's in Atlanta. 

The Pig & The Pearl

Placed in the corner of Atlantic Station, the Pig & the Pearl is the next best place to start your Sunday. Southern cuisine to the core and the layout makes for an interactive dining experience. My favorite part is the sunroom and bar seating outside. Oh, and the crab cakes benedict.

10th & Piedmont

It's probably obvious where in Atlanta this brunch spot is nestled, and it's an excuse to take a picture on the rainbow crosswalk. It's a place to get filled up on food, bottomless mimosas and then walk it off at Piedmont Park.

Sun In My Belly

This restaurant made it on the list because it was the first brunch I ever experience. It's real cozy and is the epitome of  a mom and pop restaurant. Located in Decatur where it's greater, this brunch spot has a wide variety of dishes and enough options to satisfy all taste buds.

Radial Cafe

If you're a health-conscious eater, do yourself a favor and go to Radial Cafe. There are enough vegan options that will have you coming back for more. This is also not a restaurant where they serve small portions, so come ready to eat. My recommendation is the sweet potato pancakes. Delicious!

BQE

Located in the heart of ATL, BQE is known  for the afro-centric vibes and it's the place to go if you're a fan of R&B and hip hop. The atmosphere is buzzing and brunch goers like to dress up for the bottomless drinks and entertaining waiters. I recommend the red velvet chicken and waffles, you will not be disappointed.

Negril Village

I'm not only recommending this place because I'm Jamaican. It's one of the few establishments that hire a DJ for brunch and the service is impeccable. The menu features traditional Caribbean dishes with a modern twist. The restaurant is packed every weekend, so don't be surprised if you don't get seated becasuse you didn't make a reservation ahead of time. Don't be that guy.

Princi Italia

Princi Italia is as elegant as it sounds. This restaurant is tucked away in Midtown and has some of the best lighting for brunch photos and videos. They're known for their Italian dishes and wines, and they have definitely adopted a variety of brunch dishes to the menu. Service was up to par! Did I mention the bottomless drinks?  

Corner Tavern

Now if you're looking for eclectic brunch dishes, check out Corner Tavern in Little Five Points. Their menu features cool twists on traditional brunch plates, like PB&J waffles, and the location has a rooftop for dining. Corner Tavern is laid back, artistic and full of personality. Side note: they rotate them menu so you never know what new dish will pop up next.

5Church Atlanta

As you walk through the revolving doors, you'll notice pages out of a book written all over the walls. We were greeted by the lovely host and seated in no time. Music is low, lighting is intimate and the food was superb! It's a classy spot for you and a date or your family to dine. There's also a full bar with a bartender who knows how to make amazing drinks.
