When I 'sleep in' or eat a big dinner Saturday nights, I cherish the opportunity for a gourmet brunch. These places will serve it up right and set you on your way to Sunday Funday!

Reservations are generally recommended, as Omahans love their brunch. All of these places start slingin the grub at 10am sharp.

  1. Lot 2 Restaurant Wine Bar - Bourbon for Breakfast, Bloody Mary & PBR, oh yeah, and the food... Chicken & Waffles was probably the best I've ever had. 
  2. Railcar Modern American Kitchen - Get going early here, 9:30am start. Chilaquiles or Lemon Ricotta Pancakes... why not both?!
  3. Jackson Street Tavern - From the moment they served me fresh blackberries in my fruit cup, I was sold. From there, it's all good.
  4. Kitchen Table - Get the bread of the day, probably no matter what. The roasted cauliflower, dried apple and blue cheese levain lingers on my memory to this day. 
  5. Taxi's Grille & Bar - Great Crab Cake Bennie, all the typical breakfast offerings. Or meatloaf.
  6. Dario's Brasserie - Crepes and Oeufs for all. Also frites.
  7. Dixie Quick's - Bonus points for opening at 9am! Negative points for having to cross the river.
(Commemorative shout-out to Tommy Colinas Kitchen. Still not sure what happened there, but they would've easily been on this list only a year ago).
