Rhode Island’s Most Unique Brunch Spots


We’ve teamed up with Eat Drink RI to bring you the best food & beverage information in Rhode Island!

There are some pretty famous restaurants in Providence to have an incredible Brunch – think Nick’s on Broadway, Julians, and Kitchen – but where else can you grab something more than the usual bacon & eggs? Here are our picks for Brunch in RI if you’re looking for something a little different. Join us for the Grand Brunch, the closing event of the Eat Drink RI Festival, to experience all these spots, and many more, in the Grand Ballroom at the Biltmore on May 3rd.

Elmwood Diner

777 Elmwood Ave.
Providence, RI 02907

This historic diner has changed hands many times since it was originally built in 1947. It was reopened in 2014 and this classic spot is serving up some delicious local eats. The Baffoni Farm Fried Chicken Waffle Sandwich is sweet, savory & crispy. Our favorite is the Hangover Burger, made from local, grass-fed beef from Pat’s Pastured, topped with a fried egg. Another perk is their BYOB Virgin Cocktail Menu. Bring your own and they’ll mix up mimosas, bloody marys, or screwdrivers for a $2 per person corkage fee.

El Rancho Grande

311 Plainfield St.
Providence, RI 02909

RI’s best Mexican restaurant changed the game when they started serving brunch this past year. You could start with a Mexican Hot Chocolate, but we prefer the buzz from their super authentic margaritas. The Huevos Rancheros are delicious – but the Chilaquiles with Eggs & Steak and the Enchiladas are so good, too. Become a regular and Chef Maria just might bring you a shot of tequila to start your day.


275 Child St.
Warren, RI 02806

The genius behind the beloved Sunnyside Daytime Dining in Warren, Chef Joe Simone, opened Simone’s in 2014 and continues to wow diners with his elegant, approachable, and seasonally inspired cuisine. The Dutch Baby, a baked pancake filled with seasonal fruit or ham & cheese, is a fan favorite. We love the Wood Grilled Blackbird Farm Flank Steak and Eggs, an indulgent way to start any day.

Red Stripe

465 Angell St.
Providence, RI 02906

With locations on Providence’s East Side and Main Street in East Greenwich, this french inspired brasserie is accessible for everyone in the state. The Bread Pudding French Toast with berries, whipped cream, and maple syrup is a unique twist on a classic favorite. The Red Stripe Grilled Cheese with Prosciutto, Poached Pear & Basil Pesto is one of their most popular items – for good reason. All of their bread is baked at Olga’s Cup + Saucer, a lovely bakery in Providence’s Jewelry District.

84 Tavern on Canal

15 Canal St.
Westerly, RI 02891

This Westerly favorite, owned by Chef Christopher Champagne and his wife Julie, has some of the most unique egg offerings around. Try the Macaroni & Cheese omelet, or the Eggs in Purgatory – eggs baked in marinara sauce with grilled focaccia. For a little hair of the dog, their beer selection is awesome, and the Bartender’s Choice Cereal Milk Russian is one of a kind.
