The Serving Girl Guide: Brunch checkList

The Serving Girl Guide to a great Brunch!

I pretty much feel like I’m an expert at brunch. Its my favorite time to look good and eat well, its honestly become my number 1 self-care treat. I really love the blend of breakfast and brunch options, and I love trying new places that I randomly look up or hear about. Currently I have been to 30 restaurants that do breakfast or brunch around Atlanta. I created a list to share with you all of my brunch must haves and things I look for when I go out to eat. This list covers what I look for in the menu, service and ambiance of the restaurant.

Menu at The Collins Quarter in Savannah, GA


-Menus should be compact and filled with sweet and savory variety of items, including classic options like Egg Benedict or Shrimp and Grits and sharable plates like oysters or fried green tomatoes.

-Hand crafted cocktails, drink specials including bottomless mimosas, Sangrias and/or Bellinis.

-Prices that are reasonable and match the quality and quantity the guest will receive.

Leeland House in Houston, TX


-Staff and Management should be engaging, friendly, welcoming, and aware.

-Service should be attentive, professional, & personable.

-Reservations accepted however Walk Ins are welcomed and accommodated. (Book reservations if possible!)

5Church in Atlanta, GA


-Multiple seating options including Outside seating (heated when its cold)

-Live music, curated playlist or DJ

-Diverse Crowd

-Ambiance should be casual, classy, lively and entertaining. Allowing the guest to have an interactive yet intimate experience.

- clean and maintain restaurant smell good (Especially the bathrooms)

- Free or complimentary parking

I hope you guys enjoyed my list, and it helps you find some new places to try in the future. If you have any comments, suggestions and feedback contact me at
