Eater Louisville Heatmap: Where To Eat Brunch Right Now

View as Map

It's not really breakfast, nor is it quite lunch. But it is a meal, and often involves cocktails, so Eater of course wants in on it. We've put together some local places that are happy to offer delicious edibles during the (especially on Sundays) often hazy hours between morning and mid-afternoon. Some brunches (and breakfast-ish items) are available all week/all times; some are only around on weekends/special hours. Some restaurants are new and buzzy, some are established and comfortable, but all offer some form of brunch. Enjoy!

Any suggestions or alternatives? Please let us know in the comments.
