Updated: 15 Best Brunch Spots in Fort Worth

With a new year dawning, we thought it would be fun to update our list of 15 must-try brunch spots in Funkytown. Resolutions be damned, we know you like to sleep in and crave both savory and sweet cuisine before your mid-morning workout or all-day TV binge.  So, here is our updated list of places you can get your midmorning meal fix.

Cat City Grill

Screwdrivers, mimosas, Bellinis, bloody marys and champagne are $2 a glass at Cat City Grill for Sunday brunch. What else do you need to know? This stylish bistro, housed in a historic building on Magnolia, has an extensive brunch menu consisting of four benedict variations, six types of omelets in addition to several other specialties. Don't miss out on the ooey-gooey, house-baked cinnamon roll topped with caramel sauce.

Brunch Hours: Sun.,

10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Esperanza’s Mexican Bakery and Café

For an authentic Mexican breakfast, there's always a tell-tale sign for me. If I open the menu and see menudo, I know I'm in the right place (not that I'd necessarily opt for beef stomach soup first thing in the morning). Perfect for post-church hunger, Esperanza's has two locations in Fort Worth. The original Northside location is next door to parent restaurant, Joe T. Garcia's, and the second locale is a longtime staple of the Berkeley Place neighborhood. More-than-generous portions of chilaquiles, huevos rancheros (pictured) and migas wash down easily with the best bloody Marys in the city, in my humble opinion. Unlike the watery V-8 and vodka premixed concoction served to the masses at many restaurants, Esperanza's bloody Mary is spicy and chock-full of all the right ingredients. Make a stop next door to grab a few sweet treats to go from the colorful Mexican pastry case.

HG Sply Co.

Foraging for your food has never been trendier than at HG Sply Co., which has “Hunted” and “Gathered” sections on its menu. Falling in line with the organic/locavore/farm-to-table scene, this eatery recently opened overlooking the Trinity River in the WestBend development. The restaurant claims to use only food that comes from wildlife and natural farming that our bodies are built to eat.

Little Red Wasp Kitchen + Bar

Many of my mid-morning weekend visits to “The Wasp” include the Chicken Biscuit. Larger than you'd even dream of, this locally-sourced crispy fried chicken breast rests inside a soft cheddar biscuit swimming in black pepper cream gravy. Other features on the dynamic menu include Short Rib Benedict (pictured), Corned Beef Hash and Pederson's Hot Ham and Cheese. Little Red Wasp's Bloody Mary incorporates Tito's vodka and is garnished with local Best Maid spicy pickles. The only thing guaranteed after dining here for brunch is an afternoon nap.

Everyone can thank Mash'd for bringing moonshine to Fort Worth. On Saturdays and Sundays, it's Mimosa Madness with juice choices of traditional orange, peach, blood orange and blackberry. For those willing to take on a challenge, Mash'd offers a Manhole Cover Pancake, measuring 14 inches across, stuffed with fresh blueberries and butterscotch chips, topped with cream cheese butter and more blueberries and served with grade-A maple syrup. There's no prize if you can finish it except for bragging rights.

Press Café

What better way to finish off a morning workout on the Trinity Trails than with booze and bacon? Press Café attracts a robust brunch crowd with its primo location and an elegant, yet casual, mix of traditional breakfast offerings and amped-up favorites like the Banana Walnut Waffles. In addition to the food, locals are drawn to Press Café because of its chill ambiance. The architectural beauty of the glass building is enhanced by one of the top patios in town. Guests take in views of the river and watch kids burn off energy in the large green space while relaxing around the fire pit.

Adorned with deer heads and cowboy artwork, the Western-themed dining area is done up in wood and leather, and the rooftop provides one of the best views in town.

Righteous Foods

Lanny Lancarte, practically a legend in Fort Worth's culinary scene, has catapulted the city into healthy eating. Lancarte's bright and airy eatery, Righteous Foods, is nestled on a less hectic end of West Seventh and quickly recognized by the orange sign depicting a fist clenching a carrot. In addition to responsibly sourced ingredients, he forgoes preservatives and processed foods. Righteous brunch items include organic omelets, acai bowls, house-made granola and burritos. In Lancarte's own words, “Righteous Foods is a healthy dose of friggin' awesome.”

Social House

Hugging the corner of Currie and Crockett streets in the West 7th corridor, Social House's casual pub vibe appeals to a rowdier bunch. During warmer months, the be-seen patio is packed, and the double-sided bar serves up more than 100 beers on tap. Groups imbibing on carafes of Bellinis and mimosas can watch a game on any of the 19 high-definition, flat-screen TVs or partake of Social House's hangover cures such as the Short Rib Hash or Steak Benedict. Raspberry Beignet Jelly Holes are perfect for sharing before your hefty meal arrives to the table. Social House's super sound system steadily pumps an underlying current that keeps guests energized and content to linger.

Chef Felipe Armenta's brunch menu is anything but basic. Blueberry Sausage, Rosemary Biscuits and Frosted Flake French Toast are just a few of the showstopper items offered at an earlier-than-normal start time of 9 a.m. at The Tavern.

Winslow’s Wine Café

Reminiscent of a European bistro with modern touches, Winslow's Wine Café is famous for its wood-fired pizzas and winning wine selection. This hot spot is nestled in the heart of a neighborhood along the brick-laden Camp Bowie Boulevard. The brunch menu changes with the seasons, but the bottomless mimosas are always the anchor, and waiters aren't afraid to test the theory. The restaurant dubs itself “a fire-side drink wrapped in a cozy blanket,” and it delivers.

Wishbone & Flynt

Where else can you get a Thai peanut sauce with blackberry coulis and cilantro mid-morning on a weekend? Another brunch favorite we highly recommend is the Flynt Burger. This patty is seared in duck fat and served with a slice of sharp cheddar. And you can get an egg to go with it to make it an official brunch burger.
