Sunday Brunch: 6 Places to Check Out in Little Rock

Sundays are made for delicious brunches and in Little Rock, there are so many fantastic eateries offering the special meal, where do you go?

In the March issue of Little Rock Soiree, author, food blogger and travel writer Kat Robinson highlights six hot spots around the capital city:

  1. Ashley’s at the Capital Hotel, Markham and Louisiana Streets: Robinson said it’s an ultimate fancy brunch venue in the state, offering a diverse brunch for patrons, ranging from Red Snapper with Edamame to Low Country favorite Ham Hocks, served with a spinach and mushroom omelet with mascarpone and potato hash. You can get a three-course $35 prix fixe meal that offers a range of appetizers to choose from.
  2. Delicious Temptations, N. 11220 Rodney Parham: West Little Rock’s premier destination for breakfast, Delicious Temptations lets you select from a variety of gourmet omelets, Eggs Benedict, French toast and pancakes, plus much more. Its Eggs Temptation is probably the most well-known item on the menu.
  3. Loca Luna, 3519 Old Cantrell Rd.: This major hot spot for brunch, located in Riverdale, offers a delicious mix of American breakfast classics and Ark-Mex dishes. Start off with a Mango Mimosa, Robinson suggested, and choose from a variety of entrees like the Old-Fashioned Arkansas Country Breakfast and the French Toast with Roasted Pecans Orange-Infused Maple Syrup, plus much more.
  4. Bar Louie, 11525 Cantrell Rd.: Situated in the Pleasant Ridge Town Center in west Little Rock, this urban bar offers a pretty stellar brunch on Sunday with such delicious plates as the Eggs Benedict and the Morning After. Something else that steals the show–  complimentary Bag O’Donuts.
  5. The Root Cafe, 1500 S. Main St.: The tiny vegan and vegeterian spot in the South Main District draws a huge crowd on Sunday, offering items like the Steak and Egg on a Boulevard Bread Co. Dry Jack and Rosemary Challah roll, which Robinson said was a “masterpiece of two-handed consumption,” as well as the Shiitake Benedict and chicken and waffles.
  6. Cafe Bossa Nova, 2701 Kavanaugh Blvd.: The Brazilian joint puts a spin on the traditional brunch with its delicious offering of frittatas, Robinson’s favorite Mineirinho and paneis, deep-fried fritters with fruit or meat fillings, plus many more authentic dishes.
