Louisville knows how to eat + brunchin’ ain’t easy, but it’s necessary — which is why we’ve rounded up 17 local brunch spots divided by neighborhood (and including each restaurant’s price point) to help you plan your next weekend brunch excursion.
Despite the fact that we will be losing a local brunch champion when Toast on Market closes its doors on Sun., May 22, save your farewells, because the breakfast fave is expected to reopen across the river in New Albany on Wed., June 1. So let’s get into it.
Hours listed are when brunch menus are available, while price estimates are based on general entrees, and don’t include drinks, tax, or tip.
$ ~ $20 or less per person
$$ ~ $20-40 per person
