Do Sunday Funday the Right Way at These Brunch Spots

1. 1000 North

One of the area’s most luxurious Sunday brunch experiences awaits along the Jupiter inlet at 1000 North. Standouts like the hot chicken and bubble waffle, pimento cheese grits, and crab cake benedict are anything but standard. In the latter dish, a cornbread crust adds crispiness to the piled-high crab cake, and lemon cuts through the hollandaise sauce’s richness to complement the seafood. There’s also the option to add unlimited rosé, Champagne, and cocktails. Go for one of the Bloody Marys, like the classic, bacon-infused, or sweetly spicy mango habanero. Or opt for a pretty glass from the bubble bar of sparkling libations, such as the strawberry peach Bellini or blood orange mango mimosa.

2. Maven

Palm Beach boasts many iconic brunch spots (think Sant Ambroeus or The Circle Room at The Breakers), and Maven is poised to rank among the very best. The restaurant’s Nantucket roots lend themselves well to Saturday brunch during the summer. Here, seafood shines in the lobster benedict and the Maine lobster roll, and the menu runs the gamut with everything from avocado toast to buttermilk fried chicken and waffles

3. MIA Kitchen & Bar

When chef Jason Binder, formerly of Brulé Bistro, took the reins in the kitchen at MIA, he debuted innovative dishes unlikely to be found elsewhere. The same stands for the Saturday and Sunday brunch menu, which highlights items such as an over-the-top breakfast pizza with bacon, sausage, alfredo sauce, scallions, and sunny-side up eggs, all topped with clouds of aerated hollandaise. There’s also a foie gras “PB & J” that pairs luscious foie gras, homemade peanut butter, wine gelée, and buttery brioche bread. For $15, diners who purchase an entree can go bottomless with unlimited mimosas, sangria, and Bloody Marys to wash it all down.

4. Batch New Southern Kitchen & Tap

Owned by Kevin Danilo, this welcome addition to Clematis Street departs from the restaurateur’s other Batch eateries by focusing on the cuisine of the South, all made the way the region’s best cooks intended: from scratch. During brunch service on Saturdays and Sundays, the intoxicating scent of cast-iron baked pecan cinnamon rolls wafts through the air, preluding the indulgent meal ahead. For those craving something sweet, the s’mores waffle satisfies. Savory eaters will gravitate toward the Southern Crispy Chicken Breakfast, with a taste of fried chicken, sunny-side up eggs, sausage gravy, grits, and pecan wood–smoked bacon. Bottomless beverages are de rigueur, and Batch serves some of the best, like the fragrant ginger-peach white sangria and basil-infused Hillbilly 75, a drink that tastes so refreshing it’s hard to believe it mixes strawberry moonshine with Champagne and St-Germain.

5. Okeechobee Steakhouse

Flordia’s oldest steakhouse warrants a visit for treats other than just filet mignon. Each Sunday, this restaurant, which first opened its doors in 1947, now offers a tantalizing brunch menu with southern flair and a hearty brunch special called the “Ultimate Steak & Eggs,” which serves up to four guests with a giant tomahawk rib eye. Diners craving something sweet should select the bread pudding French toast drizzled with bourbon caramel sauce, while those looking for savory flavors can try the brunch burger, topped with a fried egg, Applewood bacon, and house potatoes. Craving both? The short rib hash n’ waffle is sure to satisfy.

6. Yard House

Yard House has always been a beloved place to enjoy a beer and watch the game, but now guests can enjoy a decadent brunch any Saturday or Sunday. Traditional brunch fare gets a modern twist, with menu options like avocado toast, the quinoa power bowl, and corned beef and potato hash, made with shredded corned beef with crispy ripped potatoes, roasted pasilla peppers and shallots, topped with green onion and a cage-free fried egg. Trade your traditional draft beer for a refreshing hand-crafted cocktail, like the Sunkissed sangria or Hawaiian mule. Or go for the bottomless drink package to sip on house beers, Bloody Marys and mimosas all morning and afternoon.

7. Florie’s

The delightful and hip restaurant at the newly-renovated Four Seasons Palm Beach names Three-Michelin star chef Mauro Colagreco as a partner and offers a relaxing environment, delicious food, and lavish drinks. The Sunday brunch menu features elegant choices such as heirloom tomatoes and peach carpaccio, local burrata with citrus salad, and the market table option, which includes the chef’s omelet station, baked goods, coffee or tea, and more. For $35, diners can relish unlimited Ferrari Trento brut and rose and a variety of wine and beer selected by Florie’s own certified sommelier, Jessica Altieri.

8. Restaurant at The Norton

Museum-goes can fuel up for a day of perusing the exhibits at The Restaurant at the Norton, which offers a delectable à la carte-style brunch six days of the week. The menu highlights favorites like the Middle Eastern dish shakshuka and smoked salmon benedict. Guests with a sweet tooth will finish every last bite of the fluffy lemon ricotta pancakes. For a spin on a southern delicacy, try the shrimp and white cheddar grits, topped with andouille sausage and sautéed peppers and onions. The restaurant also boasts an expansive wine list and craft cocktails to enjoy, like the Norton Bloody Mary and watermelon shandy.

9. Tanzy

This award-winning eatery and weekend brunch favorite in Mizner Park has revamped its selection of tasty dishes and drinks. The scent of the cinnamon and chocolate monkey bread babka will make your stomach growl, and it’s a perfect treat to share. Favorite main dishes include the crispy chicken and waffles with spicy maple syrup and the infamously decadent French toast – stacks of thick brioche toast dressed in berries and whipped mascarpone. Order the spiced brown sugar candy bacon on the side for an extra something sweet. Wash it all down with bottomless mimosas for $14 or a flavorful San Marzano Mary.

10. Saiko-I

Diners looking for a less traditional brunch will love this new menu featuring dim sum and signature Asian tapas. On Saturdays and Sundays, come with a group and share delectable plates of blue crab gyoza, wasabi pork shu mai, and coconut shrimp with walnuts. Taste the delicious Asian flavors of favorites like Korean pancakes and stuffed peppers with lobster and shrimp. Sip the day away on specialty cocktails and sake or, for $15, choose from an array of bottomless cocktails – peach Bellinis, mimosas, or Bloody Marys. If eggs and bacon sounds trite, the brunch at Saiko-I is sure to delight.

11. American Craft Aleworks

Every Sunday, this new Clematis Street spot known for its vast selection of craft beer has something new to provide its patrons: Prohibition Brunch. Chef Samantha Kittay whips up hearty brunch fare like steak and eggs, chicken and cinnamon spiced-stout waffles, and a signature eggs benedict – a biscuit topped with smoked pulled pork, a poached egg, and barbeque hollandaise sauce. On the lighter side, try the flavorful crabcakes or beet salad. Quench your thirst with $17 bottomless mimosas and Monkey in Paradise Bloodies, made with ACA’s secret tomato-base mixture.

13. Hai House

This Palm Beach favorite for Chinese-American cuisine now offers a decadent brunch menu each Sunday, filled with an assortment of Chinese breakfast dishes and dim sum. Hai House’s brunch is the result of a collaboration with famed chef Kenny Tang, whose recipes grace the new handmade dim sum menu. Tantalizing plates include Mongolian steak and eggs, lychee French toast, and Li’s Chinese chicken and waffles, an Asian twist on the classic Southern dish. Tang’s acclaimed dim sum includes specialties like edamame truffle potstickers and lobster tail spring rolls. The meal isn’t complete without the $16 bottomless Mandarin mimosas or Chinese Bloody Marys.
