There are two types of people in this world: people that love brunch, and people that haven’t had a good brunch. The good news is that when you come down to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, there’s a bevy of wonderful brunch options to choose from! Experienced brunchers of the world know just how good a seafood brunch can be, whether it’s shrimp and grits, crab cake benedict, or just a seafood omelet, you won’t find fresher seafood anywhere in the world than on the Coast. And if seafood isn’t your favorite, never fear—we’ve got plenty of other great options too!
Recently named the most romantic restaurant in the state by Food & Wine Magazine, The Chimneys offers not only an amazing brunch menu, but an unparalleled view of the Gulf of Mexico. On a warm day, you better believe the staff will open the doors facing the beach so that patrons can enjoy the fresh breeze from the ocean. 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!
Located in the heart of downtown Ocean Springs, Bayview Gourmet is where you want to go if you’re an eggs benedict fanatic. Between The Big Easy (Canadian bacon, crabmeat, shrimp and hollandaise sauce) and the Horn Island Sunrise (sautéed grouper or tuna topped with crab meat), you won’t find a better “eggs benny” on the Coast! Pro tip: if you’re having a Sunday Funday, the Bloody Mary at Bayview Gourmet will knock your socks off.
