Whether it’s a late-to-rise weekend morning when you don’t feel like cooking, a time when you’re planning to dine with the family, or during football season when you want to fill up before the football game, brunch is often vital. No need to worry, though—we’ve selected five delectable brunch spots in Charlotte for you to indulge.

The Asbury at the Dunhill Hotel serves brunch on both Saturdays and Sundays. Start off with Maw Maw’s Cast Iron Biscuit with savory bacon jam. Then treat yourself to the Crisp Waffle, topped with baked apples, chocolate chips, cinnamon and peanut butter chantilly. Your group can share a pitcher of their classic mimosa. If not, there’s always the Bloody Mary bar.

Bistro La Bon serves brunch on Saturdays until 2:30PM. Switch out the ham for a delightful Salmon Benedict. Then on Sundays, you’re welcomed with a unique brunch smorgasboard so you can try everything, especially the Swedish meatballs.

Block & Grinder’s chef selections for Sunday brunch will not disappoint, but the Duck Hash is unlike any other. If you’re in the mood for a sandwich, the Breakfast Burger with cajun bison or lamb is recommended. Despite the name, a glass of Dead Eye Rye will perk you right up: coffee-infused rye bourbon with mint cardamom cream.

Little Spoon Eatery has a high-quality menu that’s constantly changing with the seasons. While it is autumn, you can gulp down the Sweet Potato Risotto or the Sticky Rice: apple cider rice, BBQ Heritage Farms pork with a sunny egg.

Terrace Cafe just updated their menus in October and has brunch every single day. Though famous for their red velvet waffle, if you are a fan of carrot cake, the carrot cake pancakes are unbelievable and come topped with a cream cheese drizzle. Tone down the sweetness with a smoky Bacon Bloody Mary.
