Where to eat Easter brunch in Tuscaloosa


It’s almost Easter weekend, and you know what that means – deviled eggs, honeyed hams and braised asparagus will soon be the talk of the table. It’s time for brunch. If you’re not too keen in the kitchen or just don’t want to put that much work in on Sunday morning, Tuscaloosa’s local brunch places have got you covered. Check out our list of essential brunch spots in town that are sure to please this Sunday morning.

Another Broken Egg Cafe

Another Broken Egg doesn’t have any Easter specials, but they will be open from 6:30 a.m – 2 p.m. this Sunday. You can grab some classic buttermilk pancakes, cinnamon roll French toast or chicken and waffles. If you’re looking to put some lunch in your brunch, you can order crab cake benedict or a cajun Louisiana crawfish skillet. Or just skip the breakfast part and go straight for the classic bacon burger or a California club sandwich with ham, turkey, bacon and guacamole.

Another Broken Egg is located at 1650 Jack Warner Parkway.

Holler and Dash

If you’re looking for a brunch that’s a little more off-kilter, Holler and Dash will be open from 7 a.m – 2 p.m Sunday on University Boulevard next to Moe’s and Insomnia Cookies. Grab a Garden Goat biscuit with goat cheese and kale or a Strawberry and Dash with whipped cream cheese and strawberries. You can even go spicy with a Kickback chicken biscuit with fried chicken and sweet pepper jelly or basic with a Chicken Holler biscuit that’s just chicken, cheese and pickles. Or just pop in and get a Grit Bowl or parfait, just so you can say you had Easter brunch.

Cracker Barrel

If you’re looking for a good homestyle Easter brunch, Cracker Barrel will be serving their normal breakfast menu starting at 6 a.m. They’ll serve breakfast exclusively until 11 a.m. and then offer a smaller breakfast menu until closing at 10 p.m., so if you want to sleep in until the afternoon and still get brunch, this might be your go-to. You can get a big breakfast plate like their Sunrise Sampler with eggs, grits, fried apples, hashbrown casserole, bacon, ham and biscuits or you can go a little lighter with their fresh start sampler that includes yogurt with fruit and honey, eggs and a muffin. You can also get the normal stuff like pancakes and french toast.

Cracker Barrel is located at 4800 Doris Pate Drive.
