Brunch and booze make for a fabulous weekend combination, especially here in Charlotte. Whether hanging out Uptown or in one of Charlotte’s many chic neighborhoods, you can find a place to enjoy your eggs benedict or creme brulee French toast with bottomless mimosas or a well priced bloody mary. Some of Charlotte’s poshest restaurants will make sure you are content sipping and supping the morning away in their establishments.

5Church has been one of Charlotte’s hottest spots since it opened in 2012. Weekend brunch is one of the reasons for its great reputation. Sunday brunch at 5Church runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., during which time you can indulge in $12 bottomless mimosas or $10 bottomless sangria. All you need to do is decide which goes better with your sunnyside egg pizza or your corned beef and poached eggs. Don’t forget to peek at the ceiling – Machiavelli’s “The Prince” has been inscribed word for word up there. Use it to help judge when to stop those bottomless beverages.

The Cotswold neighborhood is home to one of Charlotte’s best places for fried chicken. On Sundays, that chicken comes in the perfect brunch format – chicken and waffles. If that doesn’t work for you, there are custom omelets, cannoli cream French toast and plenty of sandwiches or salads. But the real highlight is the gourmet bloody mary bar, where for just four dollars, you can customize your bloody and drink it from a mason jar. For those who prefer mimosas, $12 makes them bottomless for brunch.

Sundays are made for Brazwells and its $2 mimosas in South Park. Grab some of its fabulous chicken wings, spicy pico chicken, biscuits and gravy or an omelet with fillings of your choice. Then you can make your own bloody mary for just $4. Sit back and enjoy the Cotswald neighborhood before fixing yourself another Bloody Mary.

The perfect start to a Sunday should involve a bloody mary bar complete with homemade infused vodkas (including spicy pepper vodka). Top that off with crab cakes benedict or jambalaya and make sure you’ve got a side of cheese grits to complete your morning. As an added bonus, relax to live music. You can find all of these things at Boudreaux’s in NoDa. Get there between 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. to enjoy an idyllic Sunday morning.

Over in Plaza Midwood, there’s an unassuming spot that hides one of Charlotte’s best brunches. LULU serves food with a French-American twist, from croque madames to pimento cheese grits to crème brûlée French toast. After a few delicious bites, clink your champagne flutes filled with fruity mimosas and peach-perfect bellinis and toast to a perfect Sunday morning. All are top notch and will leave you craving more.
