The Gregory at The Watermark

Baton Rouge
523 reviews
The Gregory, the signature restaurant of the upscale Watermark Hotel, transformed a space formerly occupied by the Louisiana National Bank. With hand-painted murals and an exhibition kitchen, it's one of the finest venues in the city for locally inspired cuisine. The restaurant also presents one of the best breakfasts in Baton Rouge. The tightly edited breakfast menu offers classic eggs, bacon, flapjacks and waffles, plus some original creations showcasing uncommon ingredients. For example, there’s a banana pain perdu with wild flour brioche infused with vanilla and cinnamon and topped with banana Foster syrup. The hot brown south is another stand-out dish comprising braised turkey, bacon, pimento cheese sauce and charcoal-roasted green tomatoes over brioche.

Beausoleil Restaurant and Bar specializes in contemporary Louisiana cuisine prepared with local ingredients. On weekends, when the restaurant presents a sophisticated brunch, this translates to one of the best breakfasts in Baton Rouge. Traditional breakfast items featured on the brunch menu include the all-southern breakfast with two eggs any style, bacon, grits and a biscuit, with a flat-iron steak available as an add-on. Traditional eggs Benedict and a Louisiana jumbo lump crab cake Benedict are also highlights for the morning crowd. The house omelet embraces local flavors with a filling of Louisiana shrimp Creole, goat cheese and green onions. Diners looking for lunch-leaning items can consider the BBLT sandwich of fried egg, bacon and fried green tomatoes on a French baguette, or perhaps the shareable small plate of fried eggplant crisps with Creole sauce.

Stab's Prime Steak & Seafood

Baton Rouge
633 reviews
Stab’s Prime Steak and Seafood is a top dining destination for prime steaks, impeccable Louisiana seafood and a special occasion-worthy atmosphere. However, on Sunday mornings it’s a go-to destination for one of the best breakfasts in Baton Rouge. The restaurant’s brunch menu presents elegant interpretations of breakfast classics. Consider the filet tips and scrambled eggs served over creamed leek potatoes with hollandaise, or the sunrise crab cake with a sunny-side-up egg. Country potatoes tossed with onions, peppers and andouille feature as a side dish to boudin biscuits with gravy and eggs, smoked prime rib and eggs, and an omelet du jour. The fried smoked chicken and waffle with applewood smoked bacon is another stand-out dish for breakfast connoisseurs.

Weekend brunch at Mansura On the Boulevard is a lively and somewhat fancy affair. Contemporary creations with global flavors share space with Louisiana’s finest ingredients, ranging from local oysters charbroiled or on the half-shell to the ultimate omelette with lump crabmeat, shrimp, crawfish and a pepper jack mornay sauce. Seafood crepes and the Boulevard brunch, a take on eggs Benedict with crab cakes and a remoulade sauce, also showcase the freshest Gulf seafood. On the sweet side is a bananas Foster pain perdu, a French toast-like confection dipped in crème brulee and topped with caramel, toasted pecans and fresh bananas. It comes with Berkshire bacon strips on the side. Morning customers with a sweet tooth might also look to the dessert section of the brunch menu, which features seasonal berries with Anglaise sauce, a blueberry bread pudding and the Louisiana lust, a warm chocolate chip and pecan pie.

Superior Grill - Highland

Baton Rouge
250 reviews
Baton Rouge locals and visitors in the mood for a Mexican take on breakfast will find a lot to love during Superior Grill’s weekend brunch service. On Sundays the occasion often includes live jazz. Expect Mexican breakfast dishes like a bacon and egg quesadilla with bloody Mary pico de gallo, huevos rancheros, chilaquiles and the Superior hash with house-made chorizo and two eggs over easy. Breakfast tacos and a breakfast burrito are tempting options as well. Superior Grill also offers some classic, hearty American breakfast items including steak and eggs, and waffles or pancakes with a choice of bacon, sausage or ham. Baton Rouge’s Superior Grill opened in 2017 but know that it has a long heritage – it’s an offshoot of a popular Shreveport restaurant open since 1983.
