There's so much to love about weekends- sleeping in, being outside in the sun, and of course, BRUNCH! If you're like me, weekday mornings are spent rushing to get ready and out the door before traffic hits, so treating myself to a real breakfast on the weekend is necessary. Here are 3 can't-miss brunches in Austin, check them out!

The Bonneville
The Bonneville's brunch is chock-full of incredible options. My favorite dish is the Pop-Over Eggs Benny: housemaid pop-overs filled with sauteed spinach, shaved ham, and poached eggs topped with housemade hollandaise. Another great option is Chipotle-Lime Chicken Hash. You can also satisfy your sweet tooth with the Pecan Sticky Buns, Cinnamon Coffee Cake, or the Bananas Foster French Toast.

Apothecary Cafe
It's hard to even pick a few suggestions from Apothecary's brunch menu because everything is amazing! Apothecary always manages to go the extra mile with gorgeous plating, as well. Some standouts on the menu include the Spanish Migas with Manchego & Chorizo, the Potato Hash with Avocado Hollandaise, Salmon & Lox, and the Death by Chocolate French Toast.

Elizabeth Street Cafe
A leisurely brunch at Elizabeth Street is such a treat. Start off with something hot from their coffee menu; they make a killer cappucino. Or go for their specialty- Vietnamese coffee. Next up, order your entree. Some of my favorites include the Breakfast Bahn Mi, Roasted Pork & Wood Ear Mushroom Omelette, House Baked Brioche French Toast, and Nutella & Banan Stuffed French Crepe. While you wait for your entree, indulge in their wide array of pastries. Choose between savory or sweet croissants (including Almond, Chocolate, Spinach & Gruyere, and Butter), Beignets & Jam, and French Macarons. Don't forget a specialty tea to cap off your brunch before you go!
