The 5 Best Brunch Spots in the Heights

Our No. 3 pick proves oysters are great no matter the hour.
3. Liberty Kitchen Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

If you can't find anything to eat at Liberty Kitchen, you may need to reevaluate your life. The massive menu is filled with winners, from old-school comfort foods like open-faced tuna melts and brisket hash to modern soul food like grilled oysters topped with bacon jam, butter, and jalapeño. There's even an omelet loaded with fried oysters, spicy aioli, and slaw.

And if you're an early(ish) riser, a select "Happy Hour Breakfast" is available between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. for just $4 to $5.

2. Shade Saturday & Sunday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

It's easy to see why Shade has stayed popular over the years. It's even easier to taste. Their decadent, fluffy bacon and sundried tomato quiche, made even richer by a thick and buttery housemade crust, rivals any in town, as does the maple-syrup drenched (well at least we drench ours) challah french toast topped with whipped cream and fresh berries. Tack on a few blood orange mimosas or pickled okra bloodys for an even better time.

Wanted to get in at Liberty Kitchen for their Happy Hour breakfast, but slept in. We got in around 11, and it was great!! Always just had it for dinner. Glad we tried if for brunch :)

Rainbow Lodge is amazing. Go for Buffalo Short Rib grilled cheese or 'short-rib benedict. My wife likes the lumb crabmeat omelet. More fun than stuffy, with the most beautiful gardens and setting in the city.

Great list! All of the places mentioned are suggestions I give others when asked about where to go for brunch in that area. As for Liberty Kitchen's happy hour breakfast menu, it's worth getting up early for, although I do cave in and order off the regular breakfast menu too. If it's a special occasion or I'm in the mood to splurge, Glass Wall and Rainbow Lodge are top picks of mine too.
