Order Booze-Filled Brunch From These Atlanta Spots
From buttermilk biscuits to overstuffed breakfast burritos.
Brunch is no joke in Atlanta. People will literally wait hours to enjoy a sweet and savory feast, likely paired with mimosas. Or at least they did before the pandemic. Brunch is still hot in Atlanta, but it looks a little different these days—you just have to be a little flexible and prepared. One silver lining? It’s never been easier to have a Sunday (or Saturday) morning brunch fete in pajamas. If you dine-in, though, don't forget your mask. Here are 10 places in Atlanta to order a delicious brunch meal.
Who in Atlanta hasn’t driven around an insane amount of time to find parking online to wait an insane amount of time to get their hands on those delicious biscuits? Good news: You can order Suzanne Vizethann’s famous biscuits to-go. If you’re feeling really hungry, may we suggest the chicken biscuit? It’s a buttermilk biscuit topped with fried chicken breast, house-made pepper jelly, and pickles and it’s pretty much the best.

If only every Sunday morning could begin on Canoe’s heated patio overlooking the river. Brunch here is legendary, and it’s not just the view. The pastry basket, brioche French toast, and the duck n’beef burger are all satisfying treats that will chase the blues away.

Murphy’s has been serving brunch to hungover Atlantans for more than 30 years. They didn’t take reservations for brunch before the pandemic, but they do now. They also offer brunch to-go, which means there’s no excuse not to get your fill of their malted waffle or breakfast croissant sandwich. Even better, you can get brunch on Saturday or Sunday. Outdoor seating is available in case you do want to dine in.

Muss & Turner's
Muss & Turner’s is the place to go if you want brunch dishes that are capital-H-hearty. And at a time like this, who doesn’t want hearty? If anything, the menu names, like “chicky bisky” (chicken biscuit with sausage-poblano gravy) will make you chuckle. Don’t sleep on the breakfast burrito filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, roasted potatoes, pickled jalapeños, cheddar, red salsa, and lime cream.

Le Petit Marché
You currently can’t dine in Le Petit Marché’s cozy dining room, but you can order takeout. The vanilla-rum battered French toast sandwich (excellent with Delia’s chicken sausage) is just as good in its takeout form as it is in the restaurant. Also consider the grits stack topped with scrambled eggs, cheddar, and marinated shrimp—and the best-ever oatmeal studded with almond pralines and fresh fruit.

You can’t miss this darling locale—just look for the periwinkle blue building on Memorial Drive. The menu offers Southern-meets-French eats with standouts like the French toast crème brûlée combier, a heavenly dish of croissants soaked in heavy cream and spices that are griddled and topped off with vanilla bean whipped cream. For something on the more southern side, try the Cabbagetown breakfast bowl with grits, cheddar, choice of protein, and tomato concasse.

Sun in My Belly
The aptly named Sun In My Belly definitely makes you feel good on the inside. The Kirkwood charmer resides in a former hardware store, which adds to the overall appeal. Whether you dine in or take your brunch home with you, there are plenty of tempting options. The menu has been pared down for now but it has all the standbys like their quiche of the day, pimento cheese omelet filled with honey-glazed bacon, and French toast made with brioche and honey ricotta.

West Egg Café
Churro waffle. Need we say more? Crave-worthy dishes are West Egg’s speciality which is why people have stood outside for hours to get a table there. Now you can make reservations or order your brunch to-go making the process even more enjoyable. Other can’t-miss items on the menu include the banana bread French toast, pimento cheese and bacon omelet, and the sour cream pancakes.

The General Muir
Few things are more satisfying than sinking your teeth into Avenue A, which is a bagel topped with cream cheese, smoked salmon, grapefruit, red onion, and avocado. If that’s not your jam, then maybe a pastrami sandwich on house-basked rye bread is. Either way, there’s something for everyone at this Southern deli mainstay.

This cafe is charming as hell and totally worth the drive OTP (what else are you doing, anyway?). Located in a cottage, Fellows serves up homey vibes and delicious offerings like banana-peanut butter toast, ricotta hotcakes with seasonal compote, and sweet potato eggs Benedict. The cafe takes reservations on weekdays but it’s fist come, first serve on weekends. You can order takeout any day of the week though.
