The fan-favorite wine bar, Cru Cellars, served a decant brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11AM to 3PM. From oven toasted cinnamon rolls, shrimp and grits, to Benedicts, this menu has something for everyone. If you’re wanting a boozy brunch, we recommend trying one of their wine flights. They have six flights to choose from, including the Somm Flight that is completely customizable.
Please note, brunch is only available at the Palma Ceia location. The Westshore Marina location serves coffee, quiche, build your own breakfast sandwiches, Cru salads, & more on Tuesdays through Saturday from 7AM to close.
Brunch isn’t just a meal at Oxford Exchange; it’s an experience.
The flavors of Oxford Exchange are luxurious but also approachable. Accented by the beautifully designed environment, Oxford Exchange provides an amazing experience. Upon entering, you’ll be greeted by a curated bookstore and soft-lit glasses from Warby Parker— which you can browse while waiting for your table.
When it’s time to eat, we recommend sitting in their glass-ceiling atrium. Surrounded by their large fountain and large leaf ivy, it’s a popular place for Instagram pictures. To start off the meal, we recommend their Fried Avocado appetizer and their Buddy Brew lattes. For breakfast, there are rotating specials to fit the season.
A spin-off of the nearby classic Miguel’s, Miguelitos gives a fresh and modern take on Mexican dishes. Their interior design gives a bar or club-like feel to your regular restaurant. There is a bar area lit with moody purple lights. Also, their patio area has an additional bar, decorated with hanging twinkly party lights.
From the menu, we love their delicious breakfast tacos. They also have different bowls, Benedict, and pancakes. Pro-tip: Enjoy half off mimosas on Saturday and Sunday from 11AM to 3PM. The Watermelon Mimosa is a must-try!
Cask Social Kitchen, just called Cask by the locals, is a super popular spot for brunch in South Tampa. They have a Southern flare and awesome craft beer and cocktails. Make a reservation for brunch Friday through Sunday and you won’t regret it!
This famous SoHo spot has bottomless mimosas and Aperol Spritz for $20 along with your other favorite breakfast drinks including Bloody Mary’s, Jameson breakfast shots, and sangria pitchers. As for the food, their breakfast tacos are heavenly. If you need some comfort food, dig into the chicken and waffles. They are topped with bacon jam, vanilla cream, honey butter, and orange maple syrup – yum!
Following their success at Armature Works, Graze 1910 opened their second location in South Tampa right across from Plant High School. The long lines don’t lie, their dedication to fresh, healthy but fun brunch food is a hit with locals.
Our favorites are their custom breakfast bowls. They offer so many unique flavors to choose from like a tater tots base, shiitake mushrooms, and roasted poblano peppers.
Voted the Best New Restaurant in Florida, The Mill provides high-quality dining to the South Tampa area. They provide elevated twists to Southern food flavors. We like this spot because they don’t offer the breakfast classics and it is great place to try something new!
Grab some friends and order the Breakfast Club Cheese and Charcuterie platter. A breakfast take on the charcuterie craze, this makes it such a unique take on brunch. The platter offers duck and lamb bacon, breakfast sausage, pickled eggs, honeycomb, and chef selected cheeses. Did we forget to mention their Fried Mill Biscuits? This decadent meal is perfect to share.

If you want good brunch in South Tampa, make your way to Hyde Park Village and get a reservation at On Swann between 11AM-2PM on Saturday or Sunday. This spot is stunning from head to toe and has the most delicious food.
When we go, it’s always a must to order one of their shareable boards, especially if you have a big party. You can get their cheese board, “The Butcher,” or their Mediterranean which is divine. Another favorite of ours is their Kale Salad…it’s the best salad don’t @ us. But if you’re more in a breakfast food type mood, they have it all from biscuit and gravy to steak and eggs!
Ciccio Cali has many locations, but we love their South Tampa location for brunch. From Saturday to Sunday from 10AM to 3PM, this spot gets busy with excited brunch goers. Their live music is amazing, perfect to listen to while enjoying one of their signature bowls.
We recommend their Avocado Toast, which features bread from Gulf Coast Sourdough, a local sandwich shop in Seminole Heights. They also have creative lattes that you won’t find anywhere else. Try out one of their blue CBD lattes, naturally colored using blue spirulina!
