The Best Brunch Restaurants in Richmond

The OpenTable Team

Richmond, the state capital of Virginia, lies on the James River in the heart of the state. The city has deep connections to two major eras in American history, the colonial times and during the Civil War. Today, many of the city’s attractions tell the story of the Civil War but travelers can also find lively neighborhoods, active cultural life, and activities for all ages. Visit the renowned Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, tour the famous estate of Maymont, wander through the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens and stroll along the gorgeous Canal Walk. Richmond has a little something for everyone, including their amazing culinary scene! And, since brunch is such a big deal in the south, it makes sense that you can find extraordinary meals here to put you in the right mood for the weekend! If you’re wondering where the locals go to dine well, check out our Tastemaker 20 List of where to find the best brunch Richmond has to offer.
