Dime Store

Copy Link
Proudly serving breakfast all day, Dime Store, hits all the potential brunch-time cravings — mac n cheese, eggs benedict, and all sorts of salads and sandwiches. Pair the locally sourced meats, cheeses, produce, and breads with one of their “Day Drinks” which include the expected (Bloody Mary) and the updated (Beermosa). [Photo]

Commonwealth

Copy Link
Huge garage door windows brighten up this downtown Birmingham restaurant. Grab your number after ordering at the counter (try to resist the plethora of interesting macarons behind the glass — peanut butter, caramel, chocolate, pretzel!?!? Yes please!) and take a seat. All the farm fresh eggs, banana pancakes, kale salad and quinoa one could ask for. [Photo]

Kate's Kitchen

Copy Link
Down home comfort breakfast food, served with a friendly smile. Kate’s may be off the beaten path for some, but it’s worth finding — just remember it’s cash only. No health food here. Just good, solid breakfast. Try the biscuits, and oh yeah, the pie, for which they are known. [Photo]

Beezy's Café

Copy Link
Traditional brunch fare featuring homemade breads and soups. Their motto is “simple, honest food,” so a lot of the fanfare and fancy coffee beverages are not to be found here. Breakfast burritos are popular amongst the many other egg-based dishes. [Photo]

Café Zola

Copy Link
A go-to brunch restaurant for the non-college crowd. Go healthy with a huge green salad served with herbed crostini; traditional with a Belgian waffle with lots of toppings; or Mediterranean with Turkish lamb meatballs. There’s a lengthy coffee and tea menu, along with an equally swoon-worthy set of adult beverages. A particular stand-out: sweet and savory crepes. The savory crepes are actually made with buckwheat flour in the traditional French manner, while the sweet ones are made with pastry flour. [Photo]
