Ahh, brunch. That weekend meal unlike any other, which in its ideal form features great food, good company and plentiful drinks. These are things New Orleans excels at, so it's no wonder that we've got some great brunches. Here, then, we present the updated Eater NOLA Brunch Heat Map, featuring the hottest brunches in the city right now. It's been a while since this map has been updated, and entering the brunch competition, a whole new crop of blessed bloody mary makers including La Crepe Nanou, Crescent Pie and Sausage, Wakin' Bakin', and La Fin Du Monde.

Think we missed something? Have a favorite brunch that deserves to be here? Think one of these brunches just isn't so hot anymore and should be removed? E-mail or let us know in the comments.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Dante's Kitchen

Copy Link
736 Dante Street
New Orleans, LA 70118
An uptown favorite, Dante's Kitchen's brunch features of a number of brunch standbys done just a little bit better. For example: Dante's Eggs Benedict uses rosemary rubbed pork loin and honey; and the veggie omelette uses slow-roasted tomatoes, shiitakes, and gruyere.

2. Crescent Pie & Sausage Company

Copy Link
4400 Banks St.
New Orleans, LA 70119
(504) 482-2426
Bart Bell's former breakfast favorite, Huevos, now pops up in the chef's pizza and pork mecca Crescent Pie and Sausage (located next door to the old Huevos space) every Sunday from 9AM to 2pm. They have great shrimp and grits, and have been known to rock some serious specials like a Strawberry Cabernet Angel Food Cake French Toast. Dang.

3. La Crepe Nanou

Copy Link
1410 Robert St.
New Orleans, LA 70115
(504) 899-2670
The favorite romantic destination for mussels and fries now does brunch on Sundays, from 11:30 to 3:30. $5 Mimosas and Bloody Marys, plus omelets, crepes, croque monsiuer/madam, and of course the moules frites and hippest staff in town.

4. Stanley

547 St Ann St
New Orleans, LA 70116
(504) 587-0093
Visit Website
Stanley is Scott Boswell's casual joint on Jackson Square and serves breakfast all day every day. The breakfast fare is as good as the (perhaps more) famous lunch offerings, ranging from the usual (corned beef hash, bananas foster french toast) to the exciting (Breaux Bridge Benedict, Eggs Stanley). Oh, and: Maybe the best bloody mary in town.

5. Wakin' Bakin'

Copy Link
4408 Banks Street
New Orleans, LA 70119
(504) 252-0343
These Mid City breakfast and brunch experts make it so that you don't even have to leave the house to have brunch, because they deliver. Sweet. Though you can also dine in on everything from a Breakfast Club to pancakes (they're currently located in the former Huevos spot) or get take out, 7AM to 2PM.

6. Ruby Slipper

Copy Link
2001 Burgundy St
New Orleans, LA 70116
The Ruby Slipper is a brunch gem, whether you hit up the Mid City flagship, the CBD location, or the newest Marigny incarnation, housed in a historical bank building, with all the same delicious specials like Migas.

7. Cafe Atchafalaya

Copy Link
901 Louisiana Avenue
New Orleans, LA 70115
(504) 891-9626
Visit Website
For the DIY types, Atchafalaya features build-your-own bloody marys. In an old house on Louisiana Ave, it’s comfortable and convenient, and there's usually some sort of live music jam going down.

8. La Fin du Monde

Copy Link
2917 Magazine St
New Orleans, LA 70115
Shrimp and Grits, steak and eggs, and a bacon kim chi bloody mary? Yes, this hush hush Irish Channel spot has a huge courtyard for soaking up nice weather, and it's a great brunch spot if you want to stroll around some Magazine shops after.
