After living in New York City for a couple of years now, one thing I learned is that people here take their brunches very seriously. Trying to get into a spot on a Sunday without a reservation is honestly similar to Black Friday shopping.
But I can’t complain, because after experiencing the fun for myself, I most definitely have hopped on the brunch bandwagon. Not only is it at the perfect time of the day (hello all my fellow non-morning peeps), but to me, it has some of the best dishes to choose because you can do savory, sweet or both.
And if you’re all about snapping your delicious and perfectly plated meal and pretending you are a food blogger (myself included!), then going to a place that has the perfect backdrop or views is a must. And let’s be real, if you didn’t post it did it ever really happen?
Since brunch is now a meal I try to have at least once no matter where I travel to, I rounded up the 13 best spots around the world that will be sure to get *a lot* of likes. Check them out below!
