Waco’s Best Brunch Spots

Brunch is a well-known cure for weekend warriors—a chance to nurse a hangover, connect with friends and family, redeem a difficult week, or just eat a very late breakfast. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Waco, from craft cocktails to carafes of cheap mimosas to tacos, waffles, shaved Brussels sprouts, and more. 

Here are some of the best locally-owned brunch spots, so you can satisfy those weekend cravings Waco style. Go forth and brunch!

Hecho En Waco

Hecho En Waco is a polished, bustling eatery in downtown Waco just a stone’s throw from Magnolia Market at the Silos.

Craft margaritas of every description and mimosas from the full bar will whet your appetite while you choose between excellent offerings such as gooey chorimigas, restorative pozole verde, hearty huevos divorciados, classic chilaquiles and more. The chips, salsa, and refried bean dip are addictive, the service is always friendly and attentive, and the vibe is lively. (more…)
