Sunday brunch is all about savoring. Savoring good food, good vibes, and hopefully, good company. Brunch is a favorite meal, offering a way to reset (no matter what your weekends look like!).
Lucky you, Albuquerque has some top-notch brunch joints. Check out the list of some of the city’s most highly reviewed brunch spots (this list was compiled with the help of online customer reviews).
Dave’s Valley Grill
If you’re looking for a homestyle brunch with plenty of comfort food, Dave’s has you covered.
Their brunch menu has all the favorites, along with some unique twists on old-fashioned classics. Give this place a try if you’re in the mood for something deliciously different and fun. Guest reviews highly recommend the brunch mimosas.
Open 7 days a week from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.

With over 8K reviews, Frontier should definitely be added to the Sunday brunch list. Frontier is an Albuquerque tradition located across from the University of NM. True, it can be a busy spot for ravenous college students but it is a local favorite for good reason. Guest reviews are divided over the cinnamon rolls and breakfast tacos. Sweet vs. savory, we suppose. Which one will you try?
Open 7 days a week 5 a.m. – 12 a.m.
Address: 2400 Central Avenue Southeast
Jimmy’s Cafe on Jefferson
Jimmy’s Cafe has a welcoming sort of charm about it. The interior is fun to view while dining on classic favorites like eggs with chicken fried steak, and a stack of pancakes. Hungry yet? Guests frequently mention Jimmy’s delicious breakfast skillets. Come hungry.
Open Monday – Friday 6:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday 7 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Slate Street Cafe
If you’re looking for a hip, downtown brunch vibe… head to Slate Street Cafe. This award-winning cafe proudly uses locally sourced ingredients and has a passion for the community.

The Grove Cafe and Market
More than likely parking will be challenging, and there will be a line of patiently waiting guests. Trust us, this is a good sign! The Grove believes in locally sourced food, served in a fun and laid-back environment. With the bonus of an in-house market, you may find new inspiration for the week’s meal planning. Per guest suggestions, grab a breakfast sandwich and snag a spot on the trendy patio. Pro tip: you will want to take selfies with the latte art.
Open Tuesday – Sunday 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. and closed on Mondays

Vic’s Daily Cafe
Vic’s is right across the street from one of Albuquerque’s large churches, so plan ahead for Sunday brunch (maybe make it a bit earlier than later). Despite a projected wait time, locals rant about the delicious chicken fried steak, homemade biscuits, and fresh coffee. If for some reason chicken fried steak with gravy is not your thing, there are plenty of other options on the breakfast menu. If you’re looking for a brunch that will hit the spot every time, Vic’s is a must-try.
Open Monday-Friday 6:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 7:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Address: 3600 Osuna Road Northeast Suite #105
Weck’s Breakfast and Lunch
Brunch is undoubtedly done right at this retro cafe serving hearty plates of breakfast and lunch. If waffles and bacon are your ideal brunch, you must try Wecks. Their “full-belly” tradition is no joke. Even those with dietary restrictions will find something on the menu. While guest reviews are full of love for the food, there are even more comments on the friendly service and welcoming vibe of this hometown staple.
