Best Brunch Spots in Atlanta in Every Neighborhood

When you visit Atlanta, you will notice that Atlantans love their breakfast and brunch. At times, those can be two different entities. Breakfast is a hot cup of coffee and a simple menu that fills the belly until lunch. Brunch is more of an event that is shared with friends, a variety of foods and, more often than not, drinks.

From a traditional eggs Benedict to shrimp ’n grits or something more, there is nothing better than a leisurely weekend brunch with friends, great food, and perhaps a mimosa or three. Prepare for a delicious and satisfying meal at one of these popular brunch spots in Atlanta.

Please note: Restaurants throughout Georgia can offer in-person dining using social distancing guidelines set forth by the governor’s office. Make sure to visit the restaurant website or call ahead to confirm dine-in, takeout or curbside pickup and delivery options.

Best Places for Brunch in Buckhead

Did somebody say brunch? From high-end to no-frills, here are some of the best brunch locations in Buckhead.

Fried oysters over Sambuca-creamed spinach and poached eggs at Dantanna’s.

Dantanna’s

Located adjacent to Lenox Square Mall, in the Shops Around Lenox, this Buckhead restaurant is worth writing home about. For one, Dantanna’s offers a selection of seafood flown in daily. It also has an awesome build-your-own bloody Mary bar. But we recommend you let the bartender make yours, complete with the made-from-scratch mix. Want a recommendation? Try the poached eggs with fried oysters with Sambuca-creamed spinach. Or get the shirred eggs in tulips (two eggs baked in crepes stuffed with lobster, shrimp, and crawfish in brandy cream sauce).

Best Brunch Spots on Atlanta’s Eastside

The work week can be pretty chaotic. And don’t those weekends go by too quickly? No wonder people don’t want to leave their ‘hood to dine out. And luckily, it isn’t necessary since there are plenty of great brunch restaurants on Atlanta’s Eastside.

9 Mile Station

Though the menu is small at this rooftop restaurant in Ponce City Market, it is still hard to choose. If you’ve got a group of at least four, start with the sticky buns. Served with a coffee glaze, they are a sweet kickoff to brunch. If you fancy more sweetness, get the banana-stuffed French toast. Topped with pecans and berries, it is quite a filling portion. However, for a more hearty and meaty choice, go with the Benedict. What sets it apart is the pretzel bun, which marries well with the poached eggs and spinach. There are lots of specialty brunch cocktails and excellent wines and beers to sip while taking in the splendid city views.
