Suerte Austin

MEXICAN BRUNCH IN AUSTIN: SUERTE

Suerte’s brunch is one of my new favorites! Mexican-inspired East Austin restaurant centered on craftmade masa dishes serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. LOVE the shrimp tostada, lengua taco, migas (oh gosh, those eggs with the hollandaise sauce is heaven and I don’t even like eggs), fresh donuts, and flautas. Freshly brewed hot coffee to wake you up, micheladas and mid-morning cocktails to cure your hangover.

Fresa's Austin Frozen Margarita

FROZEN MARGARITA BRUNCH IN AUSTIN: FRESA’S

If you ask me for the favorite brunch in Austin, I would say, “Fresa’s!” Sunny day while eating all the queso, sharable tacos, elotes (off-the-cob), and prickly pear frozen margaritas with salt on the rim at the colorful tables under the trees.

El Naranjo in Austin, Texas

MEXICAN BRUNCH: El Naranjo

New Fortune Austin

DIM SUM BRUNCH IN AUSTIN: NEW FORTUNE

If you’re craving dim sum, go to New Fortune in Chinatown. Dim sum is Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm. I recommend going earlier than later because the food is fresher and more carts are on rotation. New Fortune does not have soup dumplings, unfortunately.

Le Politique in Austin, TX

FRENCH BRUNCH IN AUSTIN: LE POLITIQUE

When updating this best brunch in Austin city guide, Le Politique takes the top. The croque madame, Legation burger (best burger in Austin IMO), omelet with herbs, and Benedicte with Parisian ham are delicious. You’ll also want to try their pastries like the pain au chocolat, croissant, and ham & cheese croissant.
