Just Some Beautiful Brunch Photos

BY: Aimee Algas Alker |

We scoured recent Instagram posts for the most beautiful brunch photos we could find because, according to science and our best friend's mother, humans eat first with their eyes. This is never truer than at a languid Sunday brunch. We want to dive into every last one of these.


The spot: Brickhouse Tavern, Chicago, IL

The dish: Selections from the brunch buffet

What makes it beautiful: Truly a marriage of breakfast and lunch, the photo shows that this brunch buffet boasts more than just the typical omelet station. These guests have stocked their plates with pancakes, chili, sliders, and mac and cheese.


Sweet and Savory

The spot: Snooze an A.M. Eatery, Denver, CO

The dishes: OMG! French Toast and I Like You Elote Benedict

What makes it beautiful: This is one of our favorite brunch photos, because it illustrates the best and most difficult part of brunch: deciding between something sweet or something savory. Up top, the french toast is stuffed with mascarpone and dressed with salted caramel, strawberries, and coconut. The bottom dish puts a twist on a brunch classic with corncakes, chili-lime hollandaise, and cotija cheese.


Pop of Color

The spot: Welltopia, Hollywood, CA

The dish: The Red, White, and Blueberry

What makes it beautiful: Welltopia serves fresh fruit bowls almost too pretty to eat, making for stunning brunch pictures. This one blends fresh berries with almond milk and coconut cream, plus fresh coconut, edible flowers, and cashew butter.


Comfort Food

The spot: Blackwood, San Francisco, CA

The dish: Thai shakshuka

What makes it beautiful: Between the warm colors of the tomyum tomato stew, the creaminess of the poached egg, and the soft crumbles of mild goat cheese, that crusty slice of bread is just begging to be plunged into the depths of this dish. Plus, it all looks like a pillow in a skillet: super comforting.


Brunch on the Sea

The spot: Hornblower Cruises and Events, Marina Del Rey, CA

The dish: Selections from the brunch buffet

What makes it beautiful: So this isn't exactly one of Instagram's brunch photos, but with crispness and clarity, the video showcases the cruise ship's classic dishes such as quiche, smoked salmon, and crisp salads. Not pictured: the jazz band, the seaside sail, and the endless sweets table.
