If you've ever woken up with an incurable desire for eggs Benedict, only to be denied the chance to satisfy your cravings because your local brunch spot is only open on Sundays, fret no more. Here, seven eateries that serve delicious brunch fare on Saturdays.
If you don't mind the Franklin Barbecue-esque lines on the weekends, this new resto, which has undoubtedly perfected the art of breakfast (and its corresponding cocktails), is a must-visit eatery. Favorites include their savory breakfast pot pie and fluffy blueberry Danish pancakes with almond streusel. Pro tip: If the pancake of the day sounds tempting, try their pancake flight to sample all the different flavors in one sitting. Yes, the hype is well deserved. 3800 N. Lamar Ste. 120, 512-410-0670; 1700 S. Lamar, 512-428-8444
The sister of beloved District Kitchen + Cocktails is Oasthouse Kitchen + Bar, which brings locally sourced dining to North Austin. Brunch here means inventive flavors combined with stick-to-your-ribs comfort foods—their bacon beignets dusted with cinnamon sugar and juicy chicken with golden waffles come to mind. Warning: The frozen Irish coffee made with whiskey, cold brew, and coconut milk will instantly become your new weekend staple. Brunch served weekends until 3 p.m., 8300 N FM 620, Unit E, 737-222-5779
Olamaie is unique in that brunch is served exclusively on Saturdays. Stop in for elevated classics and quintessentially southern dishes like white shrimp and red corn grits, and some of the best biscuits in town served with rabbit sausage gravy. Brunch served Saturdays 11 a.m.-2 p.m., 1610 San Antonio St., 512-474-2796
For an Italian take on brunch, we suggest heading over to East Side darling Juniper. Add an egg to your thin pasta carbonara for the perfect recovery dish from an adventurous night out, or opt for their popular oxtail and rosemary lasagna for a heartier choice. Brunch served weekends 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., 2400 E. Cesar Chavez #304, 512-220-9421
Gear up for a day of shopping along SoCo by stopping into globally inspired Snack Bar. For those who crave savory dishes in the morning instead of the more traditional offerings will love Tamago Yoko: a cabbage, leek, shrimp, and bacon pancake topped with fried eggs, spicy aioli, and bonito flakes. Brunch served daily until 4 p.m., 1224 S. Congress Ave., 512-445-2626
The bright and modern VOX Table serves up a brunch menu that matches its décor. Their olive oil pancakes, which are soft in the middle and crispy around the edges, are topped with fig and walnut butter for a creative twist on the breakfast classic. Brunch served weekends 11 a.m.-2 p.m., 1100 S. Lamar Blvd. Ste. 2140, 512-375-4869
There's a reason why this tiny trailer has gotten rave reviews from Austin's top chefs. Menu items like the hash bowl made with sweet potatoes, pork belly, peppers, and a poached egg that is enhanced with coffee-kissed mayo, keep customers coming back for more. But be sure to get there early, as they often run out of popular dishes before their 2 p.m. closing time. Brunch served every day until out, 1203 E. 11th St.
