Forget all those lines -- this weekend, roll out of your bed and head on over to one of these new brunch hours. Whether you’ve got a sweet tooth, a boozy craving, or want some traditional brunch-y options, we’ve got you covered. Now hurry, before everyone else finds out! 

Sawyer & Co.

East Cesar Chavez
Live out your Mad Men fantasy at this brand-spanking-new, mid-century modern diner nestled on the far East end of Cesar Chavez. The menu changes daily, but you can expect your brunch here to consist of diner favorites like French toast, along with some Louisiana flavor (Cajun meatloaf!). Also: Hurricanes on tap!

Due Forni

Sixth Street
Head over to Downtown Italian spot Due Forni for brunch-y fares like their Forni Puff Pastry (Nueske’s bacon, egg, mozzarella, Fontina). Stay for a while, hang out, and watch Sunday football while sipping on $3 Bloodys and $2 mimosas.

Blackbird and Henry

Come hungry! Blackbird and Henry have an epic new brunch menu with cocktails, raw bar offerings, and a bevy of elegant, appetite-crushing options. Try a Guinness Milk Punch with their fried quail & grits, because you're classy like that.

Cesar Chavez
Check out Chavez and their recently launched Sunday Buffet. With over 50 savory and sweet options, and $2 mimosas & aguas frescas, you’re sure to leave full and happy. Pro tip: Chavez is in the Radisson near the Congress Ave Bridge, so you can attempt to walk off your food coma!

Upstairs on Trinity

If you need a DJ and some Champagne to help coax last night’s hangover into a festive day drinking event, "Social Sundaze" is for you. In addition to brunch specials, they’re hooking you up with $2 mimosas. They’re located just upstairs from beer haven Chicago House.
