The Raleigh Magazine Team’s Favorite Brunch Spots in the City


Where you can find the RM team brunchin’ around Raleigh.

Life happens, brunch helps. And on Saturdays and Sundays, there’s no egg-scuse not to gather your crew and get fizzical over mimosas and arguably the best meal of the week (it’s like breakfast, but better—and you don’t even have to set an alarm!). Whether you’re looking for an excuse to day drink or are in dire need of a hefty hangover nosh fest, brunch is always a good idea. Here, the RM team’s fave brunch spots in town. 

Hummingbird… I don’t even like fried chicken and I dream about those chicken and waffles.”

“I’ll brunch anywhere there’s a shakshuka, and Wye Hill’s got one of my faves.”
Lauren Kruchten, Associate Editor, @laurenn_nicol

A Place at The Table—I really like the huevos rancheros!”

First Watch has the best biscuits and gravy… and iced coffee!”

St. Roch for Southern brunch with Cajun flair (think gator bolognese paired with Lowcountry grits and a housemade chile oil). The Sinner Rolls are a must!”

Parkside in the Warehouse District. Their handhelds are life-giving!”

Jubala (or Waffle House, which I would be equally happy with)”

“It’s not brunch per se, but a sesame bagel with lox and scallion cream cheese from NY Bagel & Deli is also the move.”
—Eric Ginsburg, Contributing Writer, @eric_ginsburg

Cucciolo Terrazza for the Suciello, sub English muffins for grilled bread.”
—Sean Junqueira, Contributing Photographer, @seanjunqueira
