5 Best New Orleans Brunch Spots

By: Oswaldo Posas, Staff writer

We all know that brunch is the best of all meals – It encourages drinking in the morning, bacon is generally involved, and things can also be covered in gravy.  Whats not to love. It’s there for you when it’s too early for lunch and after waking up too late for breakfast. New Orleans is one of the best cities to grab brunch.  You can grab a meal with live jazz, sit outside, sip on a cocktail, on a roof top, in a garden. So set your alarms a couple hours late and check out these great brunch spots. (Some serving bottomless drinks….)

Katie’s In Mid City

3701 Iberville St, New Orleans, LA 70119

Katies, founded in 1984, has been a New Orleans staple for over 30 years.  Serving up brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks this place delivers consistently.  Owner and head Chef Scot Craig run this restaurant in addition to his new venture, Francesca, a deli and pizzeria located in the Lakeview area.  The restaurant has been featured on every food show that matters in the last 15 years and we know why.   The food is amazing and the service is topnotch!  AND, they serve bottomless mimosas, sangria and bloody marry’s.  What?!
