No meal stirs our passions quite like brunch, and these restaurants do it best.

Rooster: St. Louis, MO

28 of 26

It’s no secret that Rooster’s got fans—and a few naysayers, which comes with the territory when a restaurant has racked up this many best brunch awards and has the wait times to prove it. But your mood should ease as you begin sampling the chalkboard’s worth of creative Bloody Marys like the Fairy, which substitutes absinthe for vodka, and Boleyn, made with champagne. This is about as guilt-free as a decadent brunch gets: meats are farm-raised and hormone-free, eggs are free-range, and you can even ask to get that crêpe with a gluten-free vegan shell. Choose among breakfast (eggs, arugula, and goat cheese), sweet (s’mores), and savory (sausage, spiced apples, and cheddar) crêpe varieties.

Standout Dish: The Rooster Slinger, which slathers thick-cut homemade toast with fried eggs, potatoes, andouille sausage, and pork sausage gravy. —Kate Appleton
