The name reflects this unique restaurant’s philosophy and it describes its homely and warm atmosphere as a mixture of New York flair and Southern charm. The appropriate prices and the location in the heart of downtown Tuscaloosa make it a top address in town. The brunch menu is just as unique, a small but select variety of sweet and salty dishes make your Easter Sunday perfect.
- Another Broken Egg Café
The location of the neat café would already be engaging enough: down by the Riverwalk it provides a terrace to enjoy your meal with a beautiful view of the Black Warrior River. The brunch menu offers American classics like chicken and waffles, sandwiches and burgers. Of course, the cafés name also keeps its promise and offers a big variety of omelets and other egg specialties. Another special feature is the range of seafood dishes – a great brunch experience!
- The Side by Side
To present you a really fancy location for having an amazing Easter brunch we must add the Side by Side to this list. This exquisite French Restaurant is also known for its southern hospitality and is located in the building of Embassy Suites by Hilton in downtown Tuscaloosa.

- Five Bar
What could make a better number five on this list than the famous Tuscaloosa Five Bar! The unique concept of offering exactly five dishes in every category is super popular and works just as well on their brunch menu. Five select and varied dishes will satisfy those who love a hearty brunch but also has vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Along with great food are your favorite drinks for that time of the day: orange juice and coffee to wake you up or Mimosa and Bloody Mary for those who are already awake. Happy Easter!
