10 Best St. Petersburg Brunch Spots 2022

10 Best St. Petersburg Brunch Spots 2022

It’s the weekend and time to treat yourself to a terrific brunch, but where should you go? We have compiled a list of the best brunches in St. Pete to help with your decision.

Before we get into the list, an important thing you should be aware of is that there are other publishers of “best of lists” that do not actually go to the establishments, or actually eat the food.

We absolutely DO. (How can anyone recommend something they never experienced?)

Unfortunately, we’ve seen it a lot—from national and local publishers. We are also aware of a local publisher that offers paid placement in best-of-lists. There is no paid placement here.

WE PERSONALLY ATE ALL OF THIS FOOD, AND WENT TO ALL OF THESE PLACES, AND THESE ARE ALL OUR PHOTOS.

Best Brunch Spots in St. Pete Chosen by Locals 2022

First, we’d like to give you our top three best brunches.

1.Wild Child
2710 Central Ave
St. Petersburg, FL 33712
(727) 954-7425
Wild Child Website

Wild Child was overwhelmingly recommended in our Facebook Group, and now we know why. All of the food was so astoundingly delicious that it seems like they are working with some type of special magic over there.

The Blue Corn Grits with Monterey jack cheese, bacon, pickled jalapeños and scallions were some of the best I’ve ever had, and I am a total grits snob.

The Potato Latkes with crema, dill, chives and an added caviar bump was incredible. The crunchiness and texture along with the flavor, and contrast with the crema made this an experience in eating.

At this point we were so full, but we had to try the BEC – bacon, egg, American cheese, English muffin, hot mayo sauce and potatoes, and we couldn’t stop eating it.

Even though we were stuffed, we couldn’t resist the Chicken Karaage Biscuit – biscuit, miso honey butter and home fries was nothing short of spectacular. (Karaage is a Japanese cooking technique in which various foods—most often chicken, are deep fried in oil. The process involves lightly coating small pieces of the meat with flour, or potato or corn starch, and frying in a light oil.)

2. Social Roost
150 1st Ave N
St. Petersburg, FL 33701
(727) 202-6113
Social Roost Website

Social Roost opened right around New Year’s 2021, and they launched their brunch in April. It’s definitely one of the best in St. Pete. Lori said, “Brunch today at Social Roost Kitchen and Bar was beyond phenomenal! I must say that they have the most inventive and incredible menu for brunch that I have ever seen. So much more to go back for. We didn’t get it this time but they have shakshuka…wow! We started with bubbles and three hours later we finished with bubbles. But in between you will see the most incredible food!”

3. Sauvignon Wine Locker & Trattoria
241 Central Ave
St. Petersburg, FL 33701
(727) 827-7896
Sauvignon Website

Sauvignon Wine Locker opens for brunch on Sundays at 10:30. They have some spectacular Italian and American dishes on the regular menu that can be ordered during brunch, and the brunch items will blow you away as well. Two of my favorites are the Biscuits & Sausage Gravy and the Oxtail Hash.

Biscuits & Sausage Gravy –  house made pork sausage, creamy sausage gravy poured over flaky biscuits. If I was making biscuits and gravy, this is how I would do it, though I’m not sure I could do it this well. So many times when I order biscuits & gravy at other places, I’m reminded of the old Wendy’s ad with the old lady shouting, “Where’s the beef!?!?!” – except it would be “where’s the sausage?”. That’s not the case at Sauvignon. This is packed with delicious chunks of sausage, and the biscuits are to die for.

Oxtail Hash – braised oxtail, pan fried with potatoes, onions & sweet peppers.

This one is one of the real stars of the show. We were told it has become a crowd favorite and we know why. It has everything going for it – deep, rich flavors of slow-cooked meat – crispy, crunchy and unctuous at the same time – and then you mix in the runny egg yolk. It’s eyes roll back in your head foodie heaven.

4. The Bier Boutique
465 7th Ave N
St. Petersburg, FL 33701
(727) 827-2691
The Bier Boutique Website

The Bier Boutique uniquely does brunch on Mondays from 11-3. This makes for a fun crowd of service industry folks, tourists, and anyone that doesn’t have a 9-5 Mon-Fri gig, (which is more and more people these days). We love the Breakfast Tots – A pile of housemade tater tots loaded up with cheddar cheese, bacon croutons, a fried egg & chives with a side of sour cream. Also, the Tots & Gravy and the Brunch Burger are excellent choices.

5. Cassis
Brunch is served Tue–Thu from 11am–3pm; Fri–Sun from 8am–3pm
170 Beach Dr NE,
St. Petersburg, FL 33701
(727) 827-2927
Cassis Brunch Menu

Cassis offers American classics with subtle French influences for brunch, lunch, and dinner. They serve simple, hearty food and drinks at affordable prices right on Beach Drive. Cassis has lots of outdoor seating offering a great view and is ideal for people watching. My favorite item is the Chorizo Sausage Benedict – homemade biscuit, avocado, smoked paprika, hollandaise. By the way, they have the best sausage links I have ever had and they offer fresh squeezed orange juice.

180 Central Ave
St. Petersburg, FL 33701
(727) 202-1182
Datz Website

Datz is certainly the place for a hearty brunch. They are the home of comfort food with flair, a foodie wonderland filled with bacon, cheese, and house-made breads. The Shrimp & Grits have cream cheese and an Indian Makhani sauce that is delicious.

They have a bunch of great burgers that use Certified Angus Beef, and two that they’re famous for are The Cheesy Todd, where instead of a bun, you have two bacon-jalapeño mac n’ cheese “buns.” And there’s the Double D where you have two whole glazed doughnuts instead of a hamburger bun.

Located in the heart of the action, The Mill serves up spectacular New American Cuisine. The Mill is designed to be an all-around sensory delight. From the unique decor and top-notch libations, to Chef’s delectable creations. Their motto is “Amazing food, without the Attitude!” From their Sausage & Waffle Benny, Pork Belly Baguette or one of my personal favorites is the Panko Crusted Pickled Deviled Eggs – Avocado Crema, Sriracha Aioli. You can’t go wrong at The Mill.

Noble Crust has been famous for their brunch since day one, when they opened in 2015. People rave about the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, Fried Chicken Biscuit, Sausage gravy + egg, Fried Chicken + Waffle, Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast, and Bronzed Salmon Benny.

We love the Short Rib Benny – Poached eggs, caramelized onions, bearnaise, crispy shallots, buttermilk biscuit, and from the regular menu (which you can order during brunch) the F.G.B.L.T. – fried green tomatoes, Tabasco-honey glazed pork belly, pimento cheese.

9. Red Mesa Cantina
Saturday & Sunday 11am – 3pm
128 3rd St S
St Petersburg, FL 33701
(727) 896-8226
Red Mesa Cantina Brunch Menu

With two bars, an indoor and outdoor, an elaborate fountain with outside courtyard dining and the most extensive selection of tequilas and Mezcals in the South, Red Mesa Cantina is nothing short of a lively Mexican brunch with a menu that delivers bold, fresh flavors. I love the Steak & Eggs – 6oz. grilled steak, chile arbol sauce, queso fresco, fried potato hash and two eggs any style.  They also serve breakfast tacos, burritos, ceviches and quesadillas along with many other scrumptious offerings.

10. The Urban Stillhouse
2232 5th Ave S
St. Petersburg, FL 33712
(727) 440-8040
The Urban Stillhouse Website

For an ultimate, all-American, gustatory experience, visit The Urban Stillhouse in the Warehouse Arts District in St. Pete. The Urban Stillhouse offers a completely immersive adventure for your tastebuds and senses.

This extraordinary restaurant is influenced by the history of Horse Soldier Bourbon and offers a wonderful space to enjoy great food by Chef Kenny Tufo. The 16,000 sq. ft restaurant houses an extensive restaurant on two levels, two stunning bars, intimate private event spaces and more. The atmosphere is charming with a rustic and modern twist from the leather couches, bourbon barrels, a beautiful fireplace and striking decor every which way you look.

Pretty much anytime I go out for breakfast or brunch, my eyes immediately look for the eggs benedict. The Stillhouse Eggs Benedict is now my favorite in all of St. Pete with biscuits, fried green tomato, porchetta, chive and hollandaise served with home fried potatoes.

Steak and Eggs with two sunny side up eggs, a medium-rare steak, and home fried potatoes.
