The Best Brunch Restaurants in Sacramento

The OpenTable Team

As the Capital of California, Sacramento represents one of the most historic cities in the state. It boasts an impressive array of landmarks, parks, amenities and other ways to stay entertained in town. Located in North Central Cali, Sacto, as the locals call it, sits at the confluence of the Sacramento and American Rivers, so there’s plenty of opportunity to boat, swim, and relax waterside. You can hear live music in the parks, check out the culmination of the art scene and local nightlife in downtown Sacramento and visit the Crocker Art Museum, all in a day! The city has become America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital, constantly buzzing with things to taste and savor. And they sure know how to serve up a mean brunch! Whether you’re on the hunt for bottomless mimosas or the best eggs Benedict in town, check out our Tastemaker List of where to find the best brunch in Sacramento.
