Brunch Guide

50 must-try 'Sunday Funday' parties in Palm Beach County

Central Palm Beach County

Chez L'Epicier's brunch fare, including this verrine, stands out from typical brunch offerings.

Brunch, the dining ritual that offers the best excuse to day-drink, is blowing up. Not in the way brunch reigns at Mother’s Day or Easter. That’s lowercase brunch, demure, post-church meals. There’s never dancing on tables at brunch. But sometimes there is dancing on tables at Brunch.

This Brunch is epic. Thanks to the magic that happens when millennials meet bottomless mimosas, Brunch is the new happy hour, the new “Sunday Funday” main meal as the Bloody Mary brigade ranks grow across the county.

Take a stroll along any Sunday (or Saturday) midday along any of the dining hubs – Clematis district in West Palm Beach, Atlantic Ave and Pineapple Grove in Delray Beach, PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens, Mizner area in Boca – and you’ll witness the phenomenon: young Brunchers toasting at tables, quaffing DIY bloodies between eggs-benny bites. At Brunch, there’s likely to be a DJ involved, or maybe a live band. Or, in the case of The Wine Dive in downtown West Palm Beach, bouncers.

The Brunchers are joined by young families, intergenerational parties, girlfriends catching up, and daylight dates, all soaking up the tropical vibes of a Palm Beach County weekend.

Brunch is as generous as it is grand: The food is decadent. Portions tend to be ample. (Sometimes, there’s a buffet.) There’s bottomless booze. It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. And you don’t have to dress up.

Does dinner treat us like that? It doesn’t.
