3. Union Kitchen Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

We just love a restaurant that has brunch appetizers. Start with biscuits and gravy or a plate of miniature pancake, egg, and sausage sliders for the table before moving on to lobster-stuffed omelets, six types of eggs benny, and tender and crisp buttermilk fried chicken and buttery biscuits (hurry on those - the kitchen may run out). Then wash it all down $7 build-your-own bloodys or $15 mimosa carafes. Hey, it's the weekend.
2. Punk's Simple Southern Food Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This brunch menu may be only two weeks old; but it's so stellar, we couldn't not include it in our list (given some time it may even be No. 1). Sip on $5 mimosas, $6 shrimp-and-jalapeño-topped micheladas, $7 pickle-veggie-adorned bloodys, or our favorite, the $6 "farmerita" -- a fully loaded tequila, agave and cold-pressed carrot juice cocktail that will knock your socks off.
As will crabmeat eggs benny and grandma-style biscuits stuffed and smothered with delightful things like homemade maple sausage, eggs, and cheese; crawdaddys and spicy creole gravy; or griddled low country ham and berry jam. This is one Southern tradition you won't wanna miss.
