This cute restaurant is always packed, has outdoor seating and it’s BYOB. Their customer service is also…on point.

I’m a fan of The Clucker; sweet potato waffle, fried chicken, 2 poached eggs, honey mustard hollandaise, maple syrup. If you’re looking for a lighter option they have sandwiches and other classic breakfast items. Did I mention it’s BYOB, don’t forget the champagne!

Sidecar is a great place to stop for brunch in Grad Hospital. Located at the corner of 22nd and Christian, you’ll always see a crowd here.

My recommendations for brunch are the Porchetta Benedict or the Cauliflower Bahn Mi. If you have a sweet tooth you absolutely must try the Fluff ‘a Nutter Stuffed French Toast.

Fitz and Starts is another great brunch spot located in Queen Village. Stop by for a quick breakfast or pastry on the go, or stay and get a table with some friends. There are a bunch of different menu options to choose from like their daily quiche, biscuits and gravy, or, my favorite, the beer-braised pork sandwich.

They serve Ultimo coffee drinks and boozy drinks. I recommend trying out their hot buttered brandy, breakfast beer, and/or bloody mary.
