Delight in Greenville's Delectable Brunch Options

Brunch in Greenville has become a serious sport.  With new shops, restaurants and attractions popping up like daffodils in spring, there's no shortage of a leisure scene, and at the forefront of that scene is brunch.  We explored every possible brunch option in the Greenville area and considered our picks from several different angles like how often brunch is offered, the location of the restaurant, the uniqueness of the menu and the all-important question, "Are there mimosas?"

We're proud to bring you this list of 10 outstanding options for where to brunch which includes longtime favorites like Soby's, new and inspired spots like Tandem or GB&D, and Southern front-runners Tupelo Honey and Southern Culture. We also included places that serve brunch all the time, like Biscuit Head, because it doesn't have to be a weekend-only event.

Overall, this is an eclectic list with each restaurant offering something unique.  Let it be your guide to fulfilling your cocktail-and-maple-soaked dreams, and remember to brunch responsibly.
