I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to do while visiting a new city is hitting up the local Sunday Brunch scene before heading out. The unique dishes that are served alongside an array of beverage options from Bloody Mary bars to bottomless mimosas, and of course delicious coffee and espresso drinks to get your Sunday started, make it a delightful excursion.
I have found the locals to be one of the best resources when seeking out restaurants that have crafted their own spin on Sunday Brunch, and Green Bay is no stranger to that. If you enjoy the late-morning Sunday tradition, you’ll want to add one of these Greater Green Bay restaurants to your Sunday plans.
Some say 1951 West is Green Bay’s best Sunday brunch, and I wouldn’t disagree. The restaurant is attached to the Comfort Suites and offers some of the best food in town at an affordable price. After you are seated and greeted by your server, you are free to get up to find your favorite dish. I would suggest peeking at everything you have to choose from first, so you don’t miss out on any of your favorites, because trust me, they have it. Now this may be hard but try to bypass the elegant dessert display that features a giant chocolate fountain and save that adventure for later. Main dishes include a huge variety of breakfast and lunch specialties, from BBQ ribs and broasted chicken, to eggs benedict and even seafood, that spans across two separate dining rooms. If you come with a breakfast appetite, the made-to-order omelet and French toast station has plenty of fixings to choose from.
Don’t miss Sunday “Brunch at the Bend” which comes with a view of Duck Creek. Their expansive window-lined dining room showcases views of the river while enjoying your meal. For a real kickstart to your Sunday, partake in the bottomless mimosas or build-your-own Bloody Mary bar, yum! River’s Bend is a traditional Wisconsin Supper Club, so you will find a full meal at the salad bar alone, but don’t miss out on the omelet station, carving station and dessert station. Call 920.544.9860 to make a reservation to get a waterfront table.
The Cannery Public Market
The Cannery offers a modern spin on brunch, inside the renovated Larsen Canning building in downtown Green Bay. Their farm to table concept, (yes they OWN the farm) starts with a greeting by the #CowOnBroadway. Take a selfie or pile on with your entire crew. The Cannery is also equipped with a local makers market. Stock up on some famous Wisconsin Cheese, beer, wine, fruits, chocolate and more. The brunch menu has everything from crepes to French toast, and farmhouse classics like country fried steak and gravy, chicken and waffles and skillets. Their biscuits and gravy are even topped off with Ponderosa Farmstead Cheese Curds. If you are a champagne lover, go all in on the bottomless mimosa bar. Yes, you heard that right! Choose from orange pineapple, grapefruit or cranberry juice flavors with free refills. Need I say more?
If you’re staying overnight in downtown Green Bay, head over to brunch at Republic Chophouse. Here you’ll find an upscale twist on traditional breakfast food, meticulously prepared by their chef. This place oozes with style. Being an urban steakhouse by night, you’ll find mouthwatering brunch entrées such as steak and eggs, chop and gravy or sweet potato hash. Smaller appetites should indulge with the breakfast egg roll or breakfast quesadilla. They get super creative with Bloody Mary flavors. A Thai Bloody Mary and a Bacon BBQ Bloody Mary are both on the menu, along with a variety of other craft cocktails to choose from. Reservations recommended, call 920.430.7900.
If it is atmosphere you are looking for, enjoy the ambiance and décor of a’Bravo. Their savory Sunday Brunch is a line up of healthy goodness. You can find several gluten free items on their menu and wholesome dishes such as wild salmon and eggs, chicken spinach crepes, roasted beet salad and sweet potato cakes. For those who enjoy more comfort foods, fear not, the menu is also stacked with items from steak and eggs and cornbread andouille hash, to a variety of French toast options such as pumpkin chocolate chip, yum!
