Philadelphia Brunch Restaurants by Neighborhood

Our 55 favorite brunch places to spend a perfect weekend morning


For Something Special

Slate Bleu
As if Bucks County isn’t charming enough, Mark Matyas’s elegant slice-of-France restaurant could be the best way to start a Sunday. Well-priced dishes make it affordable, but the beautiful dining room and little touches like caviar in the smoked salmon scrambled eggs, lump crabmeat in the omelets, and a homemade saffron pasta tossed with shellfish read as pure luxury. Don’t miss the upstairs porch in temperate weather. Brunching hours: Sunday from 11 a.m. 100 South Main Street, Doylestown, 215-348-0222,

With a Group

The Waterwheel Restaurant
The Waterwheel’s Colonial nooks and crannies make it perfect for a gang. And there’s plenty for all at the $25 brunch buffet, with hand-carved meats, bagels and smoked fish, scrapple, fresh fruit, quiche, bread pudding, and host Kenny Hicklin whipping up eggs Benedict and banana-pecan crepes to order. It’s easy to overlook the plain-Jane spinach-artichoke dip. Don’t. Brunching hours: Sunday from 10 a.m. 4424 Old Easton Road, Doylestown, 215-345-9544,

For the Scene

The Logan Inn
A crackling fireplace and ye olde ambience are the sells at this 280-plus-year-old inn, where you half expect to see Ben Franklin snarfing French toast. A well-rounded wine list and traditional brunch items — plus lots of eggs — augment, but the real star is a dessert: the yeasty, just-one-more-bite bread pudding drenched in a Bailey’s cream sauce. Brunching hours: Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. 10 West Ferry Street, New Hope, 215-862-2300,
