Hot Vaxxed Summer: The Best Sunday Brunch Places Across the USA

Now we are heading into a hot vaxxed summer, it's the perfect time to celebrate with abandon. Mingling with friends, gossiping over a plate of perfectly poached eggs, and getting boozy with those bottomless brunch cocktails, we deserve all the indulgent weekends we can get after the last year.

Brunch is the most important meal of the day so we say skip out on the dry toast and weak coffee and turn to the bloody mary's and epic brunch dish spreads instead.

From hot brunch spots in LA to southern comforts in Houston, we have the lowdown on the best weekend brunch places that take mid-mornings to a whole new level.

 What's The Best City to Have Brunch?

It's summertime after a year of the most inconvenient pandemic ever and we are desperate to get out for some bottomless mimosas.

So we searched for the most reviewed brunch places in America and chose the most reviewed spots in major cities.

And out of all of the reviews on the internet, these 27 brunch places are what we thought were worth sharing.

We rated the 27 brunch spots in the US based on the general vibe, the dress code, the prices, parking, and the menu. 

Each thing we scored was worth 5 points, with the total score being out of 30. Although not all restaurants got 30/30 (can't please everyone, amiright?), we had some drool-worthy contenders.

 So which city is the best to have brunch??

We've averaged the scores for each city and this is where they stand, in order of best to not-quite-the-best.

  1. San Francisco - 24 / 30
  2. Houston - 24 / 30
  3. New Orleans - 23 / 30
  4. Los Angeles - 22 / 30
  5. NYC - 21 / 30
  6. Chicago - 21 / 30
  7. Miami - 21 / 30
  8. Philly - 21 / 30
  9. Dallas - 21 / 30
  10. Seattle - 20 / 30
  11. Denver - 19 / 30
  12. Memphis - 19 / 30

Most places were deducted points for lousy parking and high price tags. And most places were give high marks for the vibe and the menu.

Blue Door Farm Stand [Score: 21 /30]


Location: 2010 N Halsted St, Chicago, IL 60614-4314
Hours: 11 am – 4pm


  • Vibe: 5 / 5 - Modern chic meets farmhouse grace in the seasonal and savvy Blue Door Farm Stand. This little gem is all wooden beams, marble counters, and iron chandeliers.
  • Menu options: 4 / 5 - Packed with flavor perfection, the seasonal menu entices with bacon and chevre dressed benedicts, steak and eggs, and jalapeno and cheddar scones with a bright berry jam. The mimosas are also champagne heavy.
  • Prices: 4 / 5 - Reasonable.
  • Dress code: 3 / 5 - It’s not a ripped jeans nor a tuxedo affair.
  • Parking: 2 / 5 - Downtown parking hair tearing may apply (or you could get lucky).
  • Wait times: 3 / 5 - Can be a little slow at busy times but the setting is beautiful and it’s worth the wait.
