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.

It's here. The brunch all of Austin has been waiting for from Bryce Gilmore's newest restaurant. There's a kolache on the menu. And a breakfast taco. And quail fried quail. It's all so Austin it hurts. Hours are 10:30-2:30 on Sundays.

The Silo On 7th

The Hightower

Copy Link

This East 7th New American restaurant focused on affordability has launched brunch on both Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. Grits waffles, and creative adult sno cones are on the menu.

Provence-inspired LaV is the new hotness for fancy brunch. In addition to their classic, refined cuisine, they've launched a rose brunch special: along with brunch, guests can order a whole bottle of rose to share for the price of a glass. Hours are Sunday 11a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Blackbird and Henry

Copy Link

Shawn Cirkiel's Radisson stunner serves breakfast instead of a traditional brunch, but said breakfast is available at at least the early point of brunch-like times, and comes with booze, so it sneaks in here. Breakfast runs Saturdays and Sundays from 7-11 a.m.

Porter Ale House

Copy Link

This neighborhood gastropub's "badass brunch" includes french toast sticks and a mushroom polenta. Check the menu here. Hours are Sundays from 10:30 - 2:30.
