The Best Brunch Spots Across America
Move over, breakfast! For endless mimosas and hearty egg dishes, here are the best brunch spots in the country.
Alaska: Snow City Cafe, Anchorage
This Anchorage restaurant might serve more poached eggs than anywhere else in Alaska. In fact, some people say Snow City Cafe poaches an average of 100 eggs per day! Eat like the locals by ordering a Kodiak Benedict made with King Crab Cake.
Arizona: Tanzy, Scottsdale
Scottsdale takes its brunch very, very seriously. Case in point: Tanzy. This brunch spot was created by three-time James Beard Award winner Sherry Yard. Everything’s good here, but we recommend ordering a “Brunch Box.” It’s one entree plus your choice of coffee, tea, juice or breakfast cocktail. While you’re on your taste-cation to the best brunch spots the nation around, be sure to stay at the most charming small-town bed and breakfasts in each state.
Arkansas: Eleven At Crystal Bridges, Bentonville
Located in the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, this restaurant topped OpenTable’s best brunch list in 2017. Try one of its signature dishes like the Lafayette, which consists of butter-toasted ciabatta bread with layers of country ham, Swiss cheese, and cheddar sauce.
California: République, Los Angeles
Walter and Margarita Manzke are some of the brightest culinary stars on the West Coast. On the weekend, you can enjoy a savory brunch at their Los Angeles restaurant, République. Sample the Kimchi Fried Rice, which is served with beef short rib, pickled radish, sesame seeds, and soft poached eggs. When you’re done with brunch, be sure to check out the best ice cream shop in each state, too!
Colorado: Denver Biscuit Co., Denver
This Denver spot has appeared on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and other Food Network shows. It took Drew Shader and his team six months to perfect the biscuits, so brunch here won’t disappoint.
Connecticut: Elm City Social, New Haven
Family style’s the name of the game at Elm City Social. It doesn’t get better than the Early Nachos: homemade potato chips, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs and a gooey layer of cheese. While you’re having food fun, check out what each state would look like designed out of food!
Delaware: Deerfield Golf Club, Newark
On Sundays, the golf course and wedding venue turn into a bruncher’s paradise. Dubbed “Delaware’s Best Brunch Experience,” Deerfield boasts a table of fresh seafood along with crisp, chili-infused bacon, and an Instagram-worthy doughnut wall.
