Best Brunch Spots in Winston-Salem When Visiting Wake Forest University

Published on February 22, 2019 by Cara

Winston-Salem has some tasty brunch spots to explore whether you’re in town for Parents Weekend, a football game or many of the other events held at Wake Forest University throughout the year.

To make the cut, the focus was on local so you can get the real vibe of our city. All of these eateries are an easy 5 to 10 minute drive from the James Bond Hidden Cottage. Naturally, Southern inspired dishes take center stage on many of the menus. So grab a seat and enjoy a delicious meal at one of these popular eateries.

1. Mary’s Gourmet Diner – Cheeful and hip, this diner has great energy and Mary made her name in town specializing in breakfast with a big menu of American classics that shine a light on local ingredients.  Try Mary’s famous biscuits and gravy or one of her signature grits bowls. Pair it with one of the creative mimosa flavors like Apple Pie or Niki’s Pickles Red Eye.

2. Krankie’s – Located downtown in a former chicken processing warehouse. The setting is industrious and artsy. Famous for their homemade biscuits. The fried chicken biscuit was featured in Our State Magazine. This lively joint fills up for brunch. They roast their own coffee onsite. You can buy a bag to enjoy at home.

3. 1703 – An elegant spot for a classic Sunday brunch. When the weather is warm, there’s a lovely patio that invites you to enjoy a leisurely meal. Great service with a menu that changes weekly. Walk from the cottage to this neighborhood gem.

4. The Porch Cantina – Fun & funky, Tex-Mex inspired dishes and known for their hand-crafted margarita flights. Try the Porch Breakfast Bowl with homemade grits topped with Vantastic pimento cheese and poached eggs.

5. Mozelle’s –  Elevated Southern inspired dishes. When the weather is warm, settle down at one of the cute bistro tables lining the sidewalk. Try the Mozelle’s Benedict with candied bacon, spicy collards, sausage gravy, fried egg on a brioche bun. Named one of the 50 Best Restaurants in the South by Open Table.

6. 6th& Vine – Cool outdoor seating in an alleyway downtown. You’ll find a big menu of salads, omelets and different kinds of eggs Benedict. 209 West 6th Street. 336.725.5577

7. Sweet Potatoes –Chef Stephanie Tyson and Hostess Vivián Joiner have been cranking out tasty comfort food on Trade Street since 2003, a Winston-Salem favorite. It’s Southern soul food. Try the sweet potato biscuit topped with country ham, poached eggs, cheese sauce and bacon bits. 607 N. Trade Street. 336.727.4844

8. The Filling Station – Come here to snag a seat in the outdoor patio area under the trees for classic brunch fare.

9. River Birch – This place feels like a mountain lodge with the large stone fireplace. With towering ceilings of heart pine, it’s comfortable and casual and especially cozy during fall and winter. They also have a gluten-free menu.

10. Village Tavern In Reynolda Village - The original Village Tavern began here back in 1984. They’ve expanded to other locations, so while technically a chain, we’ve included it because this is the original location and it is a Winston-Salem staple. A cozy pub atmosphere inside and there’s patio seating as well.
