1) Cafe Monte French Bakery & Bistro
Our mouths are watering just thinking about brunch at Cafe Monte. If you’re wishing for a brunch experience that transports you right into a cafe in France, then this is the spot for you.
While the food is incredible (we recommend the Benedict Monte and the Duck Confit & Waffles), what really stands out at Cafe Monte is the customer service. You’ll be treated like an esteemed guest the second you walk through the door.
Enjoy their fresh-squeezed juice or a cappuccino with your meal. Just be sure to make reservations, as this place gets quite busy! It’s easy to make reservations right on their website.
2) Ruby Sunshine
If you’re looking for a trendy spot to visit for your weekend brunch, consider Ruby Sunshine. They’re all about #ThatBrunchLife. With locations all across the South, it’s no secret that Ruby Sunshine is growing in popularity, and for good reason. We’re lucky to have a location right here in Charlotte!
Their menu is fun and unique, with one of the biggest standouts being a mimosa flight with the following flavors:
- Blueberry lavender
- Watermelon pomegranate
- Pineapple peach bellini
- Blue orange
Plus, they offer six varieties of eggs benedict, including bayou shrimp, fried chicken, and more! They don’t take reservations, but you can join their waitlist online before heading over.
3) Easy Like Sunday
We can hear the Commodores playing in the distance… 🎶
Easy Like Sunday is one of Charlotte resident’s favorite Sunday brunch spots. They offer a breakfast and a brunch menu (because, yes, they’re different, thank you very much), depending on the day of the week. We can’t get enough of their ricotta French toast or mouth-watering shrimp and grits.
They even offer catering and parties! Keep in mind that Easy Like Sunday does not take reservations— everything is first come, first served.
4) Zada Jane’s Corner Cafe
Are dog-friendly patios kind of your thing? Then be sure to check out Zada Jane’s Corner Cafe! Located in Plaza Midwood, this popular brunch joint has something for everyone. From fluffy pancakes and amaretto French toast to breakfast sandwiches and avocado toast, Zada Jane’s serves the classics but always adds a unique twist. They have a wide range of coffee drinks, so you can get your morning caffeine fix, too.
5) littleSpoon Eatery
Featuring a menu that changes with every season (or sometimes every day), the innovative owners at littleSpoon Eatery like to keep things fresh. In their own words, they take having fun very seriously.
You might encounter some of the most unique food plating you’ve ever experienced at littleSpoon Eatery, but the only thing better than the presentation is the incredible flavors. They source their ingredients from local farmers, so you can know exactly where your food is coming from.
This is a place where you’ll want to take a picture of your food before you eat it.
6) Another Broken Egg Cafe
Looking for a traditional brunch spot with both sweet and savory options as well as fantastic brunch cocktails? Another Broken Egg Cafe in Charlotte is the place to be. With five (yes, five!) different types of Bloody Marys and six mimosa flavors, you can’t go wrong. They even offer creative spiked coffees for guests who want a brunch cocktail while still getting their coffee fix.
We love their crab cake benedict and Mardi Gras omelet, but it’s pretty hard to pass up their Bourbon Street pancakes. With so many great menu options, why not order family style and get a little bit of everything with your friends? You can join the waitlist online before heading over.
7) Bistro La Bon
Five words: All. You. Can. Eat. Buffet.
Bistro La Bon is a modern European restaurant that only serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Brunch is exclusively an all-you-can-eat buffet, so be sure to come hungry! Prices for the buffet are very reasonable for the amount of food you can get. Plus, each buffet comes with either a mimosa, Bloody Mary, or bistro peach bellini.
Stop by in Plaza Midwood to enjoy incredible European flavors!
8) Mimosa Grill
Mimosa Grill is a trendy and modern brunch joint that takes Southern food and spins it with global influences. Sometimes we fall asleep dreaming about their crab & pimento cheese hushpuppies, fried green tomato BLT, and steak and eggs. And, of course, with a name like Mimosa Grill, you can’t forget a mimosa to drink. Opt for a classic mimosa, or try one with fresh pineapple or cranberry juice.
Their ingredients are sourced from local farms in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, which makes everything that much sweeter. Come check them out every Saturday and Sunday starting at 11 am!
