Jillys is the most overrated by far. Sure their food variety is interesting but the high price and lame service ruin the brunch experience.

Olivette Diner. If you haven't heard of it you are missing out.

Onesto has a terrific buffet, great patio and friendly service.  The Ritz is the best. . . if somebody else is paying!

Onesto! They have a great little buffet, and it opens at 9 so we have time to eat before church.

Ari's! you cannot beat a $6.99 breakfast buffet including a made-to-order omelette station, coffee or tea. Saturday and Sundays, quick and friendly service. My cup of coffee never empties!

Square One Brewery. The Bloody "Mary" flight is pretty awesome for first timers.

Table is awesome. Top notch food (not your standard brunch menu) and a seasonal cocktail menu. Not to mention great service.

I love love love Ari's for brunch! The service is always fast and friendly! Plus you can't be their prices either! It's a little hidden gem, that I hate to give up, because its never crowded, but I must give props where they are due! Their brunch buffet is always fresh and the omlet bar is well stocked and if they don't a filling you like, just tell them, and they will have it next week!

Nadine's gin joint. Great pancakes and French toast. You also get the whole bottle of champagne with mimosas so bring a friend or two.

La Bonne Bouchée for brunch. If you get there at just the right time, you have your pick of breakfast foods or lunch. And you can go put your nose on the glass and look at all the wonderful pastries on your way out. I'm also a fan of First Watch, even though it's a chain. Healthy fare and not too expensive. The lines are always out the door at all their locations.

@Laci Hansard Don't try Bixby's brunch unless there are at least two people in your party.  They will not seat a party of one, even when the place is empty.
