Neighborhood Shoutout: Weekend Brunch Spots in Boulder
The best meal of the day? Weekend brunch!
Boulder is full of local favorite brunch spots that are worth giving a try. Whether you’re in the mood for a classic breakfast buffet, or a sit down restaurant to sip mimosas and laugh the morning a way, there’s a place for it all. Here are a few of the best weekend brunch locations in Boulder.
The Point Cafe Boulder
If the nitro cold brew and kombucha on tap wasn’t enough to sell you, The Point Cafe’s loaded breakfast burritos and cheesy croissants are sure to have you hooked. Recently opened in March of 2019, The Point Cafe expresses their love for the Boulder community through the gift of good food and grace. Grab your friends and family and head on over for a quick brunch or a place to get your morning work done. We recommend giving their Berry Black Kombucha a try.
Jill’s Restaurant and Bistro
Whether you’re spending the weekend at the St. Julien or not, Jill’s Restaurant and Bistro is a must stop brunch spot in Boulder. With three different breakfast sections on the menu – Breakfast of Champions, The Breakfast Club, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, whether you’re in the mood for a hearty hash or an elegant breakfast brulee, there’s a menu item for every mood. Oh, and did we mention that Jill’s Sunday Brunch special includes bottomless mimosas and bloody mary’s? Make sure to arrive a little early, as this hot spot does fill up fast!
The Greenbriar Inn
It’s time to break open the bubbly at The Greenbriar Inn’s Sunday Champagne Brunch. Located at the base of the foothills in an elegant green building, The Greenbriar Inn creates the perfect weekend brunch ambiance for you and your friends to enjoy. From bellini’s and Belgian waffles to prime rib and pickled herring, their menu is full of delicious seasonal flavors. Make sure to reserve your table in advance – this restaurant is a CU favorite.
Lucile’s Creole Cafe:
A Boulder staple brunch spot for over 35 years, Lucile’s Creole Cafe is a family-run Cajun style restaurant serving some of the best dishes in the neighborhood. New Orleans style French Toast, beignets, pan fried trout with poached eggs, and chicory coffee are just a few of the delicious dishes on the menu.
Local tip: Lucile’s doesn’t take reservations, but we promise it’s worth the wait! Grab a chicory coffee and enjoy the outdoor patio while you wait.
Another local favorite, Walnut Cafe serves up a classic brunch with dishes such as waffles and pancakes, omelettes, scrambles, sandwiches and wraps, but what really sold us is their extensive espresso bar! This brunch spot is perfect for late risers, as Breakfast is served until 3:30 pm.
Bonus: their patio is pet friendly!
