Brunch is the sacred meal of Austin, a time of lazy conversation, giant hunks of french toast, and Bloody Mary's as far as the eye can see. Across the city, hipsters with mussed mustaches, power yuppies in hasty ponytails, and families carting two kids and three dogs come together to toast the beginning of the end of the weekend.
The Eater Austin brunch heatmap is your guide to the newest and buzziest destinations for weekend day drinking and dining. This spring has been big for brunch, and this update to the previous map includes everything from a brunch revamp at Texas French Bread to the most anticipated brunch of 2014: Odd Duck. As always, if there's a favorite new restaurant—or an established one trying new things—that we've missed, let us know on the tipline or in the comments.
