This story originally ran in Oct, 2020. Please confirm with restaurants before heading out and many places have fluctuating hours and closings during this time. 

Brunch is as much a weekend tradition in Wisconsin as the Friday night fish fry. So, let's make it count for our local restaurants.

Even if you’re not comfortable dining out in restaurants yet, you needn’t forego indulging in the leisurely weekend meal. There are plenty of restaurants offering fantastic carry-out options, from omelettes and waffles to brunch drinks and kits. So it's easy to order up everything you need .

Whether you choose to support one of these great spots – or another restaurant of your choice – know that your order is making a difference for someone else. 

Remember: Mask up. Be kind. Tip generously. And don’t forget to order bloody marys, mimosas or NA beverages to go along with your brunch!

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
