Coastal Mississippi is widely known for its incredible seafood, fresh from the Mississippi Sound and Gulf of Mexico. Although lunch and dinner are opportune times to devour samplings from our generous Gulf, we think brunch is another perfect way to enjoy our region's bounties. For inspiration on where to indulge in a decadent (or more health-conscious) brunch with friends or family, check out our curated list of staples! For a full list of restaurants, click here. Happy brunching!
Lovingly known as "Phoenicia's," this local favorite features a wide variety of omelets and specialty items such as Crab Cake Benedict, Trout Benedict, and even a Soft Shell Crab Benedict! We suggest adding a Lebanese coffee to complement your meal, or opt to BYOB for a small corking fee.
One of the newest additions to Coastal Mississippi, this health-conscious eatery features items that are vegan, keto and paleo-friendly on its menu. Breakfast items include a baked avocado and egg, grass-fed steak and eggs, a vegan breakfast complete with eggs, sausage and oatmeal, and much more!
"Completely sophisticated yet totally casual, our menu features hearty breakfast and lunch fare paired with deliciously unique cocktails and built-to-order Bloody Marys." Brick and Spoon Biloxi has quickly become a local favorite for its unique dishes ranging from bananas foster french toast to the killer creole omelet to the farmer's market benny. Pro tip: opt to build your own Bloody Mary for the perfect brunch.
Patio 44 in Biloxi or Gulfport
Not to be confused with the standard eggs benedict, the crab cake benedict at Patio 44 is what dreams are made of. We highly recommend pairing this with a side of Gouda grits for the full experience. If you like sitting outdoors while you dine, this is the place to be. It’s no mistake that the word “patio” is in the name, as their outdoor seating is arguably the best in Coastal Mississippi.
Recently named the most romantic restaurant in the state by Food & Wine Magazine, The Chimneys offers not only an amazing brunch menu, but the restaurant also features an unparalleled view of the Mississippi Sound. On a nice day, the staff will open the doors facing the beach so patrons can enjoy the fresh breeze from the Sound. Known for having the best trout on the Coast, The Chimneys’ Trout & Eggs Sardou is exactly what gets people out of bed early on a Sunday morning, so be sure to get there before they run out!
One of Coastal Mississippi's premier farm-to-table restaurants, White Pillars offers a creatively crafted brunch on Sundays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Chef Austin Sumrall carefully selects each menu item for this historical establishment. Chef Austin and his wife Tresse are usually found at local farmer's markets on Saturdays, perfecting the choices for Sunday brunch. Enjoy the best chicken and waffles you've ever had, grits and grillades, croque madame, a pimiento cheese burger, and more! White Pillars can seat quite a few guests, but it's not a bad idea to make a reservation.
