Mother’s Day is in 1 week! If you are wondering where to eat Mother’s Day brunch in Atlanta, I have got you covered.
Brunch is my favorite meal of the day. You get the best of breakfast and lunch in one yummy meal. Atlanta has many great brunch choices. Last year I wrote about my top 10 favorite places in “Best Brunch Restaurants in Atlanta.” Since that time I have visited a few new places that would be perfect for Mother’s Day brunch!
Local Three is a unique restaurant located in Buckhead Atlanta. The indoor décor is sophisticated yet cozy with colorful paintings on the wall and a long welcoming bar area. For Sunday brunch the restaurant opens up their kitchen to diners. For one set price you have an all you can eat buffet filled with food literally right off the grill. You are able to walk through the kitchen and check out the chefs in action. There are a variety of foods from eggs benedict to short rib hash to seared scallops to macaroni and cheese. Dessert offerings include cakes and tarts and even Panna Cotta. Mother’s Day brunch will be served from 10am-3pm. The cost is $39.93 for adults and $19.93 for ages 6-12. Children under 6 eat free!
Sweet Auburn Seafood:
I first wrote about Sweet Auburn Seafood after attending their Aroma Monday’s event. I had dinner there and it was delicious. I returned during the downtown Atlanta food walk tour and sampled their shrimp and grits served with chicken sausage. One of the best shrimp and grits dishes I have had in Atlanta! Based on these experiences, I had my book club brunch there last winter. Some favorite brunch items include the lobster pot pie, fried shrimp and waffles, seafood omelet and of course the shrimp and grits. So, if your mother loves seafood, this a great place to eat Mother’s Day brunch in Atlanta. Sweet Auburn Seafood restaurant is open for brunch on Sundays from 11am to 4pm.
South City Kitchen:
South City Kitchen is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta! There are currently two locations in Midtown Atlanta and Vinings. There is a new location coming to Buckhead Atlanta. I recently returned for their jumbo lump crab cake hash and it was divine. The she crab soup, the Springer Mountain Farms fried chicken and waffle and the Springer Mountain Farms fried chicken served with bliss potatoes and collard greens were also hits. On Sundays brunch is served from 10am to 3pm.
Southern Art is located in the Intercontinental hotel in Buckhead Atlanta. It is the brainchild of Oprah’s former personal chef-Art Smith. After having dinner and lunch there, I finally experienced their Sunday brunch this year. First of all, the décor in Southern Art is absolutely gorgeous. It is very elegant. There was a live jazz trio playing which added to the ambience. For their Sunday brunch you can choose from a la carte items or the all you can eat buffet. On the a la carte menu expect traditional Southern favorites such as fried chicken and waffle, Georgia shrimp and grits and “Addie May’s Soup” which is Art’s family’s chicken and dumplings. The all you can eat buffet includes omelet and waffle stations. I actually had the chopped salad with grilled chicken and I enjoyed it. Sunday brunch is served from 11.30am to 3pm.
