Best brunch spots in Fargo-Moorhead

We asked and the locals answered: these are the best restaurants for brunch in Fargo-Moorhead.

1. Granite City

Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
See the brunch menu

Coming in at number one, Granite City’s Sunday spread isn’t called the “Lawless Brunch” for nothing.

To start, you get infinite mimosas and Bloody Marys. You can go wild at two creation stations, one for designing your own donuts, the other for concocting a decadent omelet or breakfast sandwich.

Then, it’s on to the carving table for slow-roasted, juicy prime rib. If you’ve still got room on your plate, an endless supply of bread, pastries, fruit, extra thick-cut bacon, and hashbrowns can fill in the gaps.

2. The Tavern Grill

Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
See the brunch menu

The Tavern touts its build-your-own plates every day of the week, but on Sundays it gets more fun.

For $17.00, you can go nuts building your ultimate brunch plate with things like fresh carved roast beef, pancakes from the made-to-order pancake bar, fresh skillet caramel rolls, fruit, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, biscuits & gravy… you get the picture.

3. Urban 42

Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
See the brunch menu

This upscale restaurant inside the Delta by Marriott isn’t reserved just for hotel guests – anyone can walk in off the street and stuff their face.

You’ll get all the fixings of a classic breakfast like fruit, bacon, sausage, made-to-order omelets, and pastries, but Urban 42 kicks everything else up a notch.

That means smoked salmon, deviled eggs, cranberry-pecan ham, creme brulee French toast, beef meatballs, chicken breast piccata, and more.

If you say your mouth’s not watering reading that list, we don’t believe you.

Everyday, all day

Forever a favorite of locals, The Boiler Room has upped their brunch game from weekends to every. single. day.

There’s also no time limit on ordering their signature Rum Chata French Toast, Crab Cake Benedict, Champagne Strawberry Waffle, or Breakfast Casserole… they serve brunch all day.

Two gluten free omelet options round out the list. And, on Saturdays and Sundays you can combine brunch with a Bloody Mary from the create-your-own Bloody Mary bar.

5. The Blarney Stone

Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
See the brunch menu

This Irish pub deems its brunch, “Dinner in Dublin” because even though it’s morning in the states, it’s dinnertime on the Emerald Isle.

But don’t worry, it’s all amazing breakfast foods on the menu, including some traditional Irish options like Bangers & Eggs (sausages and eggs), Corned Beef Hash (oven-baked corned beef, diced potatoes, onions, and sauerkraut), and a Traditional Irish Breakfast (one sausage, cottage bacon, two eggs, baked beans, and grilled tomatoes).

Whatever breakfast entree you order also includes a free trip through the Bloody Mary and mimosa bar.

Breakfast options include lox and scrambled eggs (there’s even a vegan lox option!), focaccia, porridge, and bacon or sausage and egg plates.

Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
See the brunch menu

This cocktail bar and restaurant turns into a brunch hotspot on Sundays, dishing up interesting “twists” on breakfast favorites plus plates you won’t find anywhere else.

A highlight reel of Twist’s brunch would include: the Big Ass Cinnamon Monkey Bread Roll, Breakfast Fingerling Poutine, Butternut & Brussels Sprout Hash (vegan!), Breakfast Tacos, and the Brunch Burger.

And that’s just the highlights… you’ll have to stop by to try the rest yourself.

If you’re vegan, they’ve got three great brunch entrees on the menu as well.

While not technically brunch, the extensive mimosa and Bloody Mary bar at Pounds will be more than enough to fill you up for the day.

You can load your glass with as much yummy stuff as will fit in it.

On the Bloody Mary side, that means veggies, grilled cheese slices, pizza rolls, fried chicken, pickles, shrimp, cheese, jerky, and more.

Feeling more like a mimosa? Add in fresh fruit, juices of your choice, gummy candies, and cupcakes!
