Ten Best Brunches in Broward County
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, brunch -- doesn't matter. We're ecstatic when we can grab any meal away from the confines of our home kitchen.
Though we don't discriminate in terms of meals or times, each one has its purpose. Breakfast is a great way to start what will become a busy day; lunch is the opportune time to bond with friends (hate to break it you, but lunch dates sway toward the friend zone); dinners out are intended as a relaxing way to end the day, whether with a romantic partner, close friend, or family member.
Brunch, on the other hand, is the ultimate time to de-stress.
You don't have to rush back to work; you don't have to get home to go to bed; it's one of the few occasions in life when it's all right to just chill out with some comforting food and a daytime cocktail and totally decompress.
However, the ideal way to let it all go looks different to everyone. Whether you like to sip champagne with a sophisticated raw bar or Benedict, gorge yourself with an open buffet, or party it up with bottomless booze and live entertainment, the ideal breakfast-lunch hybrid exists, and we have more than our fair share to choose from around here.
Check are our picks for the ten best brunches in Broward County.
10. American Social Bar & Restaurant
Las Olas is not exactly known as an affordable street; however, here you'll find a brunch in a fun atmosphere that is an absolute steal. Just $19.95 gets you all-you-can-eat crab leg, fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, Belgian waffles, scrambled eggs, made-to-order omelets, and more. For another nine bucks, add unlimited mimosas; Angryosas, a combination of Sam Adams, Angry Orchid cider, and orange juice; or bloody marys from the do-it-yourself bar. Whether you're looking to start your weekend off with a bang or just cure last night's headache, Am So is here to help you on your mission; brunch is offered Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
9. Rosie's Bar & Grill
Wilton Manors is known as a town that likes to party. Obviously, crazy Saturday-night antics need a Sunday-morning cure. Here you'll find some hair of the dog and the after-party. With $4 Ketel One bloody marys, $5 mimosas, and a DJ, if you can't jump on the Sunday Funday bandwagon, the problem is you. The food is creative and filling -- that much better for soaking up the booze -- with choices ranging from pancakes (plain to decadent) and waffles, like the double-decker banana cream pie ($10.95), two waffles filled with banana cream, banana slices, and whipped cream to omelets and 'dicts (Benedicts), such as the Not Crab with a "K," blue crab cakes on top of sautéed spinach with herb hollandaise.
