Hunker down in AF+B's cool and cozy brick-lined dining room to feast on chef Jeff Harris's tasty brunch menu: smoked brisket hash with salsa verde, savory bread pudding with housemade bacon, and flaky duck pot pie. Do not skip dessert, particularly the coffee toffee apple pudding. [Photo: Malcolm Mayhew]

This Meddlesome Moth sibling in Sundance Square takes brunch fare to new heights with the aptly named "badass" bacon waffles with brie fondue and caramel apples, and the "Mother and Child Reunion": a fried chicken breast with poached eggs, grits, and jalapeno gravy. [Photo: Malcolm Mayhew]

There's plenty of tasty options on the brunch menu at this Southside gastropub, including fried chicken and waffles with thyme-maple butter and biscuits with andouille sausage and IPA gravy. A side of "donut dippers" with fresh fruit compote is a very good idea. Great coffee and craft beer are in no short supply here — hence the name — but for a non-alcoholic option, try the housemade Italian sodas in flavors like cilantro-lime. [Photo: Malcolm Mayhew]

Brunch at The Modern's restaurant is worth it for the stunning view alone — but the food ain't half bad, either. Keep it traditional with peach melba pancakes or house-cured salmon and a bagel, or get off the beaten path with panang curry poutine or sweet potato falafel. [Photo: Cafe Modern/Facebook]

This 24 Plates replacement specializes in small plates, but you'll probably want the fried bologna sandwich — served on a Pearl Snap kolache bun with bacon, cheese, and spicy mayo — all to yourself. Other options include goat and sweet potato hash and house-smoked salmon tomato skins (that's right, tomato skins). [Photo: Fixture/Facebook]

6. Little Red Wasp

This more casual (and more affordable) sibling to Grace has made a name for itself by churning out super-delicious, high-quality versions of classic American dishes like burgers and deviled eggs. For brunch, look to the gigantic fried chicken biscuit with cheddar cheese or the meaty short rib Benedict. Brunch cocktails are clever and original, like the Bitter Beauty (Deep Ellum IPA, citrus juices, and vodka). [Photo: Malcolm Mayhew]

7. MAX's Wine Dive

Max's ultra-indulgent dishes and generous portions all but ensure you'll need a post-brunch nap, but hey, what else are Sundays for? The famed fried chicken is always a good choice, especially with a side of chipotle honey, but there's also lemon curd-topped French toast and a gigantic egg sandwich with black truffle aioli. Mimosas are fairly priced at $3.75, and you can also get 'em made with grapefruit juice. [Photo: Max's Wine Dive/Instagram]

8. Pacific Table

This ode to California cuisine in University Park Village specializes in seafood, but there's plenty of variety on the brunch menu. Keep it simple and sweet with lemon ricotta pancakes, or get fancy with an $21 lobster omelette. Mimosas and bloody marys are priced right at three bucks each.

For a healthier take on (Saturday only) brunch, look to chef Lanny Lancarte's forward-thinking reinvention of the Lanny's Alta Cocina space. Start out with a fresh-pressed blood orange juice with basil or organic chai, then proceed to an omelet loaded with Niman Ranch pork, zucchini, and sweet potato, or multigrain banana-chocolate waffles. Smoked pistachio guacamole makes an excellent starter. [Photo: Malcolm Mayhew]

An excellent (and dog-friendly) patio makes this laid-back bar a great brunch destination — as do the $8 bottomless mimosas and the chimichanga-esque "bangin'" brunch burrito with rosemary potatoes. [Photo: Malcolm Mayhew]

Pizza for brunch? Sure, why not. Vivo 53 makes a mighty fine A.M. pie topped with smoked salmon, creme fraiche, and chives. For something a little sweeter, there's cardamom waffles with honey butter and sea salt or French toast — er, Italian toast — with fresh ricotta and peach preserves. More importantly: $1 mimosas.
