Everyone craves brunch, and Austin is full of great options. What makes for a good brunch? A good balance of sweet and savory dishes, plus brunch drinks from coffee to juices to bloody marys.

With that in mind, here are Austin’s best brunch restaurants, offering reliable weekend meals and drinks. This ranges from dim sum at Jade Restaurant, Texas takes at Jacoby’s, Mexican offerings from El Naranjo, and more. For the purposes of this map, restaurants serving daily brunch (which is just breakfast) are not included.

For related options, scope out Eater’s guides to breakfast, coffee, and baked goods.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurants themselves.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
