Real talk: brunch is the best meal of the day, and we’re going to take liberties and assume you agree. How could it not be when you can drink coffee for the first half of the meal and switch to bottomless mimosas for the second? Because you’re technically eating two meals at once, there’s no shame at all in eating pancakes drenched in syrup, a cheeseburger with fries, or both. Whether you’re in the mood for something sweet and sugary or something savory and warm, you can always find it on a brunch menu. For all you brunchers out there looking for the perfect spot for a mid-weekend meal, we have the lists.
