3. Majorca Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

On Sundays, this hip bistro and tapas bar is the place to be. Sip on cinnamon-spiced sangria or bottomless mimosas ($9.95) as live flamenco music pulses through the dining room. Then get ready to fill and refill your plate as you hit the all-you-can eat spread or Spanish and Mediterranean classics ($19.95) like paella, ceviche, and kebabs alongside solid breakfast staples. A regular menu is available as well, but we mean, all you can eat ceviche.

2. Brennan's of Houston Saturday 11 a.m to 2 p.m.; Sunday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If you're going to treat yourself to a fancy pants brunch, you need to do it right. And a three-course Texas Creole meal from Brennan's is just the way to do that. Start with the famed sherry-laced turtle soup or choose from jazzy dishes like spicy chicken and ham gumbo, rich and creamy shrimp remoulade, and more. Then, move onto the big guns. Classic eggs Benedict and the cream-spinach-and-artichoke-laced eggs sardou are both portraits of perfection. And the stunning mountain of shrimp and grits never disappoints. Bananas fosters flambéed table-side for dessert? Okay, it's the weekend.
