The Sunday Morning Cure

Ahh…Sunday brunch.  Nothing remedies Saturday night’s misdeeds better than a plate of bacon, with a side of more bacon. And perhaps a little hair of the dog….after 12:30pm of course. We’ve compiled a list of Atlanta’s favorite spots to rejuvenate and recuperate.


A long-time favorite of Virginia Highland’s brunch set, there is always a line out the door after 10am. So get there early and order one of their signature benedicts and a mimosa, of course.

Sun in My Belly

Quaint and cozy, this is the perfect brunch place to bring a date….maybe the one left over from the night before? Their scrambled egg, bacon, and cheddar panini on brioche is indescribably delicious.

South City Kitchen

With two locations, Vinings and Midtown, SCK pleases guests with sophisticated Southern staples like shrimp with stoneground grits and fried chicken and waffles.

Thumb’s Up Diner

With five locations throughout Atlanta, this Decatur original is like a super-fancy Waffle House with a long list of ingredients to build your own breakfast including their house-smoked chicken and turkey. Or try one of their signature dishes like the Sassy Scramble with smoked salmon and cream cheese.

American Roadhouse

Serving breakfast and brunch for twenty years, my favorite thing about this Virginia Highlands veteran is the selection of healthy options like egg white omelettes and turkey bacon, as long as you can resist their decadent chocolate French toast!

Flying Biscuit

Candler Park’s original location is as popular as ever, but now fans can enjoy their vegetarian-friendly brunch at multiple locations throughout the city and the suburbs. No meal here is complete without one (or two) of their famous biscuits and apple butter.

Park 75 at The Four Seasons

For a white tablecloth experience check in at the Four Seasons on 14th Street, or just valet for a few hours to visit the restaurant that overlooks the atrium. Be prepared for a sumptuous brunch buffet featuring made to order crepes and omelettes plus a delectable assortment of pastries.

Ria’s Bluebird

Named in Esquire’s list of the best breakfast spots in the country, Chopped champion chef Ria Pell serves up this city’s most creative brunch specialties including lots of vegetarian options, but you can’t visit Ria’s without trying her famous pancakes named “the world’s best” by the NY Times.

West Egg

A Westside favorite among urbanites, West Egg serves Sunday brunch until 10pm. So no matter how late you were out Saturday night, you can still enjoy their short rib hash or fried green tomato BLT for their version of a late-late brunch they call brinner!

Babette’s Cafe

Chef/owner Marla Adams recreates a rustic European atmosphere at her noted cafe located in a renovated Victorian house near Inman Park and Little 5 Points. Try a fluffy omelette or the succulent lobster and spinach crepes.

Chicken and The Egg

A large selection of savory and sweet brunch items are available at this relatively new Marietta restaurant specializing in farmstead fare. Belgian waffles or country fried steak and eggs with a strong cup of coffee will hit the spot.

Waffle House

Yep, that right. Who doesn’t love eggs with processed American cheese, greasy bacon, and scattered, smothered and covered hash browns? Best hangover cure on the planet. You know where to find it. Only drawback, no bloody Marys.
