I have a new-found interest. Okay, so maybe it’s more of an obsession.
To me, there’s nothing better than brunch on a Saturday morning at a local restaurant with my hubby and two little girls. My insatiable love for breakfast food may also be partially credited to the fact that I am expecting my third child. But let’s be honest… you don’t have to be pregnant to appreciate waffles and bacon. And cheesey omelets. And raspberry-stuffed crepes.
Lynchburg has some incredible brunch destinations. These are 4 of my personal favorites:
1.) RA Bistro
Where: 1344 Main Street, Lynchburg, VA
Brunch hours: Saturday 11am-3pm, Sunday 10am-3pm
What to get: The mixed berry crepes are paper thin pancakes stuffed with sweetened cream cheese & topped with fresh strawberries & raspberry dipping sauce. Another favorite is the Monte Cristo featuring fluffy scrambled eggs, thin-sliced ham, & melted Swiss cheese all flash fried in funnel cake batter & served with breakfast potatoes.
2.) Auburnlea Farms Corner Market
Where: 1220 Greenview Drive, Lynchburg, VA
Brunch hours: Monday-Friday 9-11am, Saturday 9am-2pm
What to get: The Auburnlea biscuit has spinach, tomato, scrambled eggs, white cheddar cheese, and hollandaise sauce on a warm house-made buttermilk biscuit. Pair it with their signature iced chai tea served in a mason jar. After brunch, shop locally-sourced organic produce, meats, cheeses and more in the market.
3.) Carol’s Restaurant

Brunch hours: Saturday and Sunday, 8:00am – noon
What to get: The breakfast buffet. Absolutely. All-you-can-eat eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, gravy, fresh fruit, pancakes, and more for only $8.50. Best. Deal. In. Town.
4.) The Great Room

Where: 2900 Candlers Mountain Road, Lynchburg, VA
Brunch hours: Monday-Friday 6:30-10am, Saturday 7-11am, Sunday 7am-2:30pm
What to get: Definitely the cinnamon & vanilla scented french toast. The made-to-order two-egg omelet is also delish. Honestly, we love the entire brunch menu.
