Via 313's brunch pizza
| Hunter Townsend

Brunch is the cure-all for weekend hunger and hangovers with the right combination of breakfast, lunch, and lots of drinks. It's when it's acceptable to arm yourself with cocktails and coffee, while you hunker down with pancakes, burgers, and so many eggs. The Eater Austin brunch heatmap is your guide to the newest and buzziest destinations for weekend and daytime drinking and dining.

November brings three new brunching spots: Via 313’s brunch pies on Rainey Street, Pitchfork Pretty, and Unit-D Pizzeria.

For more mid-morning weekend ideas, check out Eater's guide to essential brunches, indulgent brunch buffets, or dim sum, plus our picks for Bloody Marys and mimosas, plus other related tidbits you might need to know.

The map points are not ranked in any particular order. If there is a favorite new restaurant — or an established one trying new things — that is missing, let Eater know on the tipline or in the comments below..
