I love brunch, you just probably won’t catch me at one. Why? Because I just can’t wait that long to eat. Some of you have the patience (good. for. you.). So, if you’re looking for a new spot for brunch in Omaha, this is the list you’ve been waiting for!
Read on to get the days and times for area brunch restaurants. I’ve included menu recommendations for both food and booze. Some y’all love your bottomless mimosas.

Tip: As the name hints, this place does brunch. If you like your Benedicts on the flashy side, you can try one with chorizo or some guacamole and pecan smoked ham. Coffee is provided by Stories Coffee.
When: Brunch is Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tip: This is one of the few places with a kid’s portion on the brunch menu. It’s also one of the few places with a flight of mimosas or a build-your-own mimosa option with four juices and a bottle of champagne, so hey, there’s something for everyone.
Tip: Locals may remember the brunch buffet at the old West Omaha location. Well, the Old Market location has a scratch buffet now (beverages aren’t included). There’s an omelet station, carving station, along with breakfast favorites and salads.
Tip: I recently asked Tara Vaughan for her favorite brunch spots in Omaha, and she highly recommended W&W. “If you too live dangerously, do yourself a favor and order fries instead of the breakfast potatoes. Tell ‘em I sent ya.”
Best Brunch in Midtown Omaha
Midtown Omaha, for this list, will include restaurants in Aksarben Village, Dundee, Blackstone and Benson.
Tip: Try the bottomless blood orange Mimosas, if you’re thirsty. If you’re extra hungry, this is one of the few places with brunch dessert options, which should really be a thing on all brunch menus. Like, there’s Nutella croissant bread pudding with ice cream.
When: Brunch is Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tip: The menu is extensive and they mix things up with special brunches throughout the year (namely, New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, first day of summer, Labor Day, Thanksgiving weekend, and Christmas).
Where: 16909 Lakeside Hills Plaza, Suite 118 (there is a newer location now open in the Old Market, as well)
When: Saturday and Sunday
Tip: Things get a little spicy with a southern brunch (think Andouille sausage jalapeno poblano cream sauce, etc). They also have bottomless mimosas for $15 and a 43-ounce loaded bloody mary that comes with a boudin ball, smoked wing, stuffed peppadew, onion ring, and blackened shrimp.
Tip: They have several unlimited brunch drink options (ie., bottomless mimosas or bloody mary). There are several hearty main entrees including chicken fried ribeye served with potato pancakes. Hope you’re hungry!
Where: 1851 Madison Ave., Suite 700, Council Bluffs, Iowa
When: Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
