There’s No Better Time Than Brunch
Brunch… a late morning meal that’s usually paired with an adult beverage and never… ever disappoints. There’s really never a moment of the day when brunch sounds like a bad idea. St. Petersburg knows how to do brunch. Our love affair with Beach Drive comes alive every weekend around 11. Let’s be honest for a moment… 11 is key… especially on a Sunday. 11 is when you can order your brunch and have your mimosa too! Whether you’re new to St. Petersburg or you’ve lived here your whole life, you should know that there’s a lot happening in the brunch arena. So, prepare your taste buds and then read on!
Birch & Vine: Saturday & Sunday 10am-4pm
Birch and Vine offers brunch favorites like house made monkey bread served with a view of Beach Drive. You might be tempted to throw manners to the wind and lick your plate after indulging in the house made biscuits and chorizo gravy. If you prefer your brunch to be closer to lunch there’s the braised pork belly cuban or the Niman Ranch breakfast burger. The menu alone makes this restaurant an excellent selection for your next brunch!

Yep, it’s brunch all wrapped up in a burrito. There’s scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes and more inside a giant flour tortilla. If that sounds too indulgent you can opt for some sweet potato pancakes or go the traditional route with the Americano. Check out the full brunch menu.
