My favorite Rochester brunch spots

Brunch is my absolute favorite thing to do on weekend mornings. It's a routine that I cannot live without, and love to go to brunch (who doesn't?) at least once each weekend. Rochester's brunch game is spot on and I have some tried and true favorites that I return to again and again.


This vegan restaurant is TO DIE FOR!! there food is absolutely amazing. Do not fret if you are a non-vegan, they have something for everybody. And something delicious for everybody at that. There brunch cocktails are always unique and seasonal and I love ordering whatever their current special is. As far as food, there are both breakfast and lunch foods, with my personal favorite being the chickpea burger with Arugula, Pickles, Siracha Jam and Vegan Mayo.  Also make sure to get the Crispy Cauliflower w/ Frank's Red Hot, Maple Sriracha Mayo & Broccoli Slaw. It's unreal. 


This place is a Rochester classic brunch spot. What else can I really say about it? Greek diner vibes meets amazing, affordable food. It's located on the lovely tree lined streets of Park Avenue, where you will find all types of people from college frat boys to married couples strolling with their babies. Park ave is pretty much THE place to be when the weather is above 50, which is a rare treat and believe me, we take advantage. All summer long this place will be packed with a wait a wait most likely, go during off hours to beat the lines!

Love this place as a brunch spot. While they no longer feature unlimited mimosas, you do get two free mimosas with each entree that you order. The free mimosas are the main pull here, I'm not gonna lie, however, their brunch specials are good and never disappoint. Love the Huevos Rancheros. Sit at the bar to keep those mimosas coming faster!


This a no frills diner. Nothing fancy about this place. The food is solid and this place gets really busy on the weekends. Drop in here if you want a quick meal and straightforward service. For a diner, they do a variety of different foods really well.
