3. Aquafire Grill

Good vibes, good food, and good company is the slogan here, and it couldn’t be more accurate. On top of quality vibes, however, Aquafire Grill is without a doubt one of the best places for brunch in Nassau. Saturday mornings here are filled with shrimp and grits and other tasty brunch fares. They’ve even been known to offer something called Crunk Brunch where Veuve flows freely for a small fee. 

4. Pink Octopus

One word: mimosas. At Pink Octopus, brunch is served every Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm. And, you can expect to enjoy a delicious fusion of Caribbean-influenced American brunch dishes. Shrimp and grits are standard, but they’re also known for tasty conch chorizo, snapper Benedict, and yoghurt pancakes. All of that and mimosas? We’re in.

5. Smugglers Cafe and Bar

The Pirates of Nassau is home to a cosy little cafe and bar called Smugglers. Located in Old Towne Nassau, this streetside cafe serves up a variety of quality Caribbean seafood dishes. But, if you make it in time, their breakfast foods are a must. They’ve got everything from Belgian waffles and omelettes to a delightful Croque Monsieur. You’ll for sure head back for seconds.

6. The Swimming Pig Gastropub

It’s all about the weekend brunch at this trendy Nassau gastropub. Named after the famous swimming pigs in the Exuma Cays, this bar caters to a crowd who knows what they want, both in terms of food and drink. We suggest you head here early for brunch, order a stack of pancakes, and then stick around sipping drinks until lunch. It’s just as tasty.

7. Cricket Club Restaurant & Pub

We’re cheating a bit with this one, as they really only serve breakfast until 11 am each day. But, if you’d consider that an early brunch then it definitely deserves a spot on this list. When you’re travelling through the Caribbean, it can be hard to find traditional breakfast food, and this place does British breakfasts perfectly. British bangers, fried tomatoes, and all of the other tasty foods you’re used to are the specialties here.
