Looking for somewhere to eat on Sunday? Can’t decide exactly what you want and you would like a little bit of everything on the menu? Head to one of the great brunch buffets in town. I turned to local food blogger Elizabeth Myers to find a great selection of brunch buffets in Louisville to try. 


Is there anything better than a lazy Sunday brunch? Even the word sounds luxurious: brunch. Try these five brunch buffets in Louisville to get your fix. Don’t forget to have a mimosa or at least some Jameson in your coffee. It’s not brunch without day drinking.

Bristol Bar & Grill

  • Brunch hours: Sundays 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Adults $16, children $6, children under four eat free.

Three words: Green Chili Wontons. Bristol’s food is gourmet Kentuckiana at its best, and their brunch buffet (at all Bristol locations!) often includes those to-die-for green chili wontons. Expect to see brunch staples done the Bristol way: fresh, with many locally-sourced ingredients and gourmet twists. www.bristolbarandgrille.com

Ramsi’s Café on the World

  • Brunch hours: Sundays 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • Adults $17, children $6.99, children under four eat free.

This is a must-visit if you have out-of-town guests, or if you just have a large and picky brunch party. Ramsi’s has a vegan and vegetarian-friendly buffet with everything from cheese tortellini to vegan queso to Black Forest tart. Their serving trays full of bacon (hey, they’re vegan friendly, not totally vegan! Carnivores will find plenty to eat at Ramsi’s) make my mouth water, but their salad, fruit, and black bean patties make it possible for me to stay on diet. In the warmer months, their patio seating is some of the best in town. www.ramsiscafe.com

Goose Creek Diner

  • Brunch hours: Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Adults $12.99, children $5.99, seniors $10.99, children under 5 eat free.

Made-to-order omelets, stuffed French toast and crepes are on the menu at Goose Creek Diner’s Sunday brunch buffet, along with their world-class biscuits and gravy. You can also have fried chicken, baby back ribs, salad (their smoked tomato salad dressing is good enough to drink) and other greasy-spoon (we mean that lovingly) fare at Goose Creek Diner. Goose Creek is very family friendly, so gather up the grandparents and the cousins and get some brunch-time bonding. www.gcdiner.com

Dish on Market

  • Brunch hours: Saturdays and Sundays 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • Adults $11.95, children $7, children under four eat free.

Located downtown, Dish on Market is a great place to try Kentucky’s famous Hot Brown for brunch. Their Sunday brunch buffet has a whole tray of delicious Hot Browns, dripping with Mornay sauce and arrayed with tomato slices, along with bread pudding bites, eggs benedict, an omelet station, and of course biscuits and sausage gravy. Dish’s regular breakfast is also incredible and available (in non-brunch buffet form) all week. dishonmarket.com

Napa River Grill

  • Brunch hours: Sundays 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Adults $17.95, children $8.95, children under four eat free.

If you have a brunch date, impress them with a trip to Napa River Grill. You can enjoy apple crisp pancakes, country ham, grilled salmon on wild rice, smoked chicken salad, and pecan tartlets, among other things. Napa River Grill’s gorgeous atmosphere makes it the perfect destination for a romantic weekend brunch—perhaps a late or early Valentine’s date? Yes Please! www.napariverlouisville.com
