Brunch, that 5 letter word that makes everyone skip with glee. Or at least, it makes us skip with glee. Brunch is one of our favorite meals to explore new restaurants because it combines all of our favorite things: breakfast, lunch, and let’s be real…..booze 😊! We want to take you on a quick tour of our favorite brunch spots that will be your next weekend hot spots! We will take you on a tour from Raleigh all the way down to Fuquay Varina for our favorite brunch spots!

Let’s start in Raleigh and work our way down.
