In case you haven’t noticed lately, the brunch game in Jacksonville is strong. Brunch is one of my most favorite events, and I’m a very experienced bruncher. I have high expectations when it comes to the quality of the brunch menu offerings and orange juice to champagne ratio in my glass. Let’s be honest, it’s not brunch if there aren’t mimosas, so I’ve disqualified any restaurant that doesn’t serve them from this list (cause that’s just breakfast).
Without further adieu, here are my favorite places to get brunch in Jacksonville:
Pele’s Wood Fire
It should come as no surprise that Pele’s Wood Fire is on this list as they’re one of my favorite restaurants in Jacksonville. They’re within a few minutes of my place, so it’s really nice to walk up there on a beautiful not too hot day. Their Banana Lombardy French toast is absolutely divine and the bottomless mimosas are always satisfying.
The Ovinte Benedict with Serrano, obviously. Beautiful food that tastes as good as it looks. You cannot go wrong with Ovinte. Check out my full review of their brunch here.
The Blue Fish
That Chicken and Waffles at Blue Fish in Avondale rocked my world. It tasted like a Chick-Fil-A chicken breast on top of an amazing Belgian Waffle. Heavenly.
Obviously those are the places I frequent the most, but delicious brunch restaurants are plentiful in Jacksonville. Some others worth noting include:
- Restaurant Orsay
- Jaxson Social
- Cool Moose Cafe (Build-Your-Own Omelets FTW!)
- Billy’s Boat House Grill (Pitchers of mimosas)
- Derby on Park
Here’s to a weekend full of brunches!
