Best Brunch spots in Atlanta

Hi,
How are you doing? My favorite time to eat out has slowly become Brunch time for many reasons. It's relatively inexpensive for starters( Dinner prices can  be extremely pricey), the menu is usually a mesh of everything the restaurant offers and more, its' the perfect time of the day (nice way to start the weekend) restaurants offer specials like "buffet" during this time. Thanks! to whoever came up with that word/concept of brunch.
Sadly I would have to say I have had my best brunch food outside of the United States, but there are a a lot of amazing places here, lol. If you are visiting Atlanta or if you live here and don't have the time to go through the thousands of Yelp reviews, here are the spots to go, no I am not getting paid for this, just sharing some helpful information with my readers, after all there is nothing worse than a bad food experience! In no particular order, here are a few of my fav Brunch spots.
Brunch time: Sundays
Price Point: $$-$$$

Great farm to table restaurant, located in the heart of Buckhead. I have been there for brunch, lunch & dinner, everything was amazing!! Try the "Toad in a hole" or "French Toast" if you are like me and are adventurous with food.
Must try item
Glazed donuts, they are warm, yummy, delicious donuts made in-house.
Local Three
Brunch time:Sundays
Price Point: $$
What's the deal?
Hidden Buffet brunch spot that is offered every Sunday for $23.93 per adult. A nice spread of everything from  eggs, biscuits, shrimp & grits, pancakes & yummy dessert. I first tried out this restaurant about 5 years ago, I went again last year and everything was still as amazing. Thing to note, the meat option is pork, there is still so much on the menu for non-pork eaters.

Empire State South
Brunch time: Sundays

What's the deal?
Amazing brunch spot in Midtown with great quality, yummy food and great presentation too! I loved everything I ate and wished they offered brunch more often. Eat outside if its warmer, its a beautiful location.

Their pancakes are one of the best I have in Atlanta, hands down and no IHOP doesn't count (not a fan by the way, lol)
Le Petit Marche
Brunch: Everyday 8-5PM
Price Point: $-$$
What's the deal?
Quaint cozy spot with a broad menu that has something for everyone. I love that you can eat anything on the menu anytime of the day. They don't take reservation, so be prepared to wait a bit when you stop by on a busy day such as Saturdays or Sundays.
Must Try item
French toast sandwich! It is all that and more.

Negril Village Atlanta

Brunch: Saturdays & Sundays
Price Point:$$-$$$
What's the deal?
Caribbean restaurant offering brunch so you get to eat everything from rice & peas to waffle and jerk chicken. The menu is quite extensive. I have been there twice but sat upstairs for the buffet brunch
(only available on Sundays) which will run you $34 per person + gratuity, yeah kinda steep but there is a live DJ(She is amazing) who is really good. Honestly worth it for a group plus you get to try everything!
Note
Parking there is awful, the worst I have seen in Atlanta, its limited and pricey. Park your car on West Peachtree and walk there or pay $15 for valet (ridiculous right?) but if you carpool, it's not so bad I guess.

Wahoo Grill
Brunch: Saturdays & Sundays
Price Point: $$
What's the deal?
One of the most extensive brunch buffet's I have seen with lots of different options. Everything is amazing, salads, chicken, rice, pancakes are divine!!
Must try item
Everything, but they have these little donuts (they are so good and clearly I have a thing for donuts, lol)

Egg Harbor Cafe Buckhead
Brunch: Everyday
Price Point: $$
What's the deal?
They serve breakfast and lunch combo all day, everyday! What is different about this place is that they have an interesting menu not your regular boring eggs and sausages. They don't take reservations so expect a long delay on weekends. I love their salads.

Oy
Brunch: Everyday
Price Point: $$
What's the deal?
Large portions, I am talking pizza size blueberry pancakes and massive egg scrambles. What I love is that their food doesn't lack in taste despite the huge portions. It's perfect for groups and you will end up paying very little since every meal is best shared.
Must try
The blueberry Pancakes

Lobby at 12th
Brunch:  Saturdays & Sundays
Price Point: $$
What's the deal?
Good brunch food and an amazing DJ spinning while you enjoy your food. I had lunch versus breakfast when I visited and loved it. Their drinks are amazing too.


Barcelona Wine Bar Inman Park
Brunch: Saturdays & Sundays
Price Point: $$
What's the deal?
This Spanish restaurant served brunch Tapas style. I love the variety of what's on the menu and it's a nice get away from the usual American brunch menu. Everything I tried was amazing, they have an amazing drink menu too (Their Mimosas and Bloody Mary looked good)


True Food Kitchen
Brunch: Saturdays & Sundays
Price Point: $$
What's the deal?
Basically put, honest food that tastes really good (via their website) but that describes True Food Kitchen. Don't turn your nose down at this place if you don't care for organic, healthy food, its so tasty you can't tell.
Must try
Kale drink

South City Kitchen
