1. Dime Store

Dime Store is a proper American brunch bar in downtown Detroit where they are passionate about making absolutely everything from scratch.

Watch out for their specials like the “Gobbler Benny” pictured below. It features housemade turkey sausage, cranberry-orange jam and crispy stuffing cakes, topped with poached eggs & hollandaise.

2. Honest John’s

This is the sort of place you come when you really want to treat yourself with a bit of a cheat meal for brunch. They are open all week long from 7am, but it’s way more fun is to come at the weekend and let you hair down properly with one of their house cocktails.

3. The Brooklyn Street Local

This is a restaurant that that focuses on fresh, locally sourced ingredients and serving them up with simple dishes that let the produce do the talking.

The pancakes with maple syrup are a classic example of that. A dish served all over the world but they just seem to take it to a whole new level. If you are a craft beer lover they have an excellent selection.

4. Parks & Rec Diner

A cozy, 34 seat, sit-down diner focusing on breakfast. Their big selling point is that you can have brunch at any time of the day. That’s an idea we can really get on board with.

Their nachos (seen below) are a thing of beauty; if you are into pancakes then they serve one of the best stacks in town. Parks & Rec Diner is a must-visit in the city.

5. Selden Standard

Selden Standard serve up lots of small plates that are ideal for sharing, and which give you a great reason to sample lots of their great cooking. The food is outstanding all week long, with brunch being a truly unique experience.

It might seem simple but their biscuits with egg and ham shows off all the confidence and talent they have in one simple dish. Easily one of the best brunch spots in Detroit.

6. Fort Street Galley

Fort Street Galley is a food hall and restaurant accelerator where you will find some of the most innovative cooking, and people really pushing themselves creatively.

One such example is a dish by Table Detroit: Short rib omelette which is loaded with braised short rib, roasted tomatoes, mushroom, and smoked cheddar. The beauty about this venue is that you’ll find lots of brunch options, so there’s something for everybody.

7. Smith & Co.

Smith & Co. are a brand new restaurant and their food is already blowing people away with its originality and fresh menus.

The room is bright and beautifully design, but it is their Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas that will really get you into the mood. The perfect place to come with a group of friends to kick the weekend off in style.
