Is it breakfast? Is it lunch? Who cares — it’s delicious. The hardest part about brunch is choosing where to go. That’s why we’re doing the hard work of rounding up the top spots for those mid-morning munchies. Maybe we shouldn’t be doing this on an empty stomach.

Our recs

The Farmhouse, 300 Delaware St., Kansas City, MO | “They source their food locally, and menu items change frequently. I currently love the veggie Benedict.” — City Editor Krit

Bar K, 501 Berkley Pkwy., Kansas City, MO | “This dog park restaurant crushes its chicken and waffles. The waffles are even infused with sugar crystals. Add in an extensive drink menu, live music, and all the fluffers you can pet, and it’s no wonder I love this spot.” — City Editor Travis

“You can’t beat weekend dim sum brunch at Bo Ling’s on the Plaza! Try the shrimp toast, garlic and cucumber salad, and steamed pork buns … all with fragrant Dragon Pearl tea.” — Reader Linda R.

“The pancake flight at Snooze!” — Reader Hannah B. (And while you’re looking for flights…)
