The 4 Best Brunch Restaurants in Lynchburg

I have a new-found interest. Okay, so maybe it’s more of an obsession.

 

Brunch.

 

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

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

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

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

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.

  1. I would add the Koffee Kup and IHOP, both having all-day breakfast offerings. Koffee Kup is comfort food at a comfortable price. And if you’re 55 or older, the 55+ menu items at IHOP are a real deal! At Koffee Kup, I go for the two eggs, biscuits gravy and link sausage. Just the right spice in the sausage! At IHOP, I like the 2x2x2, two eggs, two pancakes, and two sausages or bacon. And I love that IHOP coffee and the big coffee decanter! No reason to track down a server for that second cup…it’s right there. And the food quality at both places is good, very good!

  2. Might I suggest The Corner on Rivermont Avenue. Indoor and outdoor dining and a relaxed atmosphere has made it a favorite. Their beignets are tremendous and their eggs Benedict is yummy
