Nicole Leininger May 2, 2022

The Queen City has no shortage of wonderful restaurants, but one scene where Charlotte shines is its breakfast and brunch scene. Let’s take a look at the top five spots in and around Charlotte to grab brunch.

Easy Like Sunday

Easy Like Sunday takes a love for brunch and brings it to the Charlotte area by serving it all day long. Easy Like Sunday’s menu features your normal breakfast and brunch fare such as French toast and eggs benedict, but some must tries include their ricotta-stuffed French toast, brunch burger and the cheddar shrimp and grits served with Portuguese sausage and a kick of Cajun seasoning.

Of course brunch also means mimosas, including the white peach and lavender mimosa. But, if it’s coffee you are yearning for, try the Kyoto cold brew which is a 24-hour drip coffee for those who need that extra kick to get through the day.

Located at 1600 East Woodlawn Rd., Easy Like Sunday is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Ruby Sunshine

If you love the food of the southern Gulf with that New Orleans flare, Ruby Sunshine is the brunch spot for you. Only open for breakfast, brunch, and lunch, Ruby Sunshine offers all the southern staples such as shrimp and grits, omelets, and biscuits and gravy. If it’s eggs Benedict you’re craving, Ruby Sunshine has eight varieties to choose from including the chicken St. Charles or the corned beef.

Other favorites include the sweet heat chicken and French toast bites and the bacon praline pancakes. Of course Ruby Sunshine also has drinks to wet your whistle including mimosas, Bellini’s, and their award-winning bloody Mary.

Ruby Sunshine is located at 323 West Bland St. and is open Mon.-Fri.7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and until 3 p.m. on the weekend.

Snooze Eatery

Brunch foods to the fullest – that is the best way to describe Snooze, which is soon to have three locations in the Charlotte area. With a lengthy menu, Snooze has all your breakfast needs covered. From shrimp and grits, breakfast tacos or the sweet potato hash, you can mix and match to satisfy your hunger. 

Two unique offerings at Snooze include the Benny Duo and the pancake flight. With the Benny Duo, customers can mix and match a variety of toppings to create two unique Benedicts, while the pancake flight allows you to choose any of their pancake flavors to get the best of all worlds. Snooze also offers all of your boozy drink needs and local coffee.

Alchemy at C3 Lab

With a vegetarian focused menu, Alchemy’s Chef Ken Aponte’s menu will cater to all who walk through the 10,000 square foot space, which also houses an art gallery and coffee shop. Some of the breakfast highlights of the eclectic menu include the Prosciutto De Parma omelet, Lion’s Mane & waffle, and the Alchemy pancakes.
