Start the day with a pillowy pancake stack from our No. 3 spot.
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.

You can get both breakfast and lunch at our No. 2 pick.
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.

The list includes anything in the West U area, which was noted in the piece but not the title, sorry if it was misleading!

There's a location at 4057 Bellaire in West University. This post covers Rice Village and West U, so it's still within the confines. You're probably thinking of the other location on Memorial.
