Indulging in something from the bakery lab at our No. 1 pick is a must.
1. Pondicheri Everyday 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

There's a reason Pondicheri earned our top spot for 2013's Best Brunch. Actually, there are many. There's the modern, Texas-laced take on classic Indian fare, the stellar selection of fresh, boldly roasted coffees and teas, and perhaps most importantly, the drool-inducing "bakery lab, " which the restaurant plans on devoting an entire second level shop to sometime this summer.

Start with a litchi and pear white sangria, then for a little taste of everything, get the Morning Thali, a traditional Indian variety plate filled with delights like spiced beef keema; saffron-laced yogurt; carrot paratha; and a bright, yolky fried egg. And of course, be sure check out the lab and grab a few cardomam, pistachio, and orange-spiced sweets to split with friends.
