BRUNCH! Let’s talk about brunch. I am not sure what it is, but Madison LOVES brunch. There are so many great places around that offer a wide variety of menu items but here are five of my favorites.


Location: 117 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Madison, WI 53703

DLUX is on The Square. They serve bottomless mimosas from pitchers and they have a killer Bloody Mary bar. They also have these amazing homemade donut balls that they serve with a strawberry dipping sauce.

2. Marigold Kitchen

Location: 118 S Pinckney St, Madison, WI 53703

Marigold Kitchen is just a few blocks from CrossFit Recursive. They have a duck confit hash that is amazing and great coffee drinks.

4. Lazy Jane Cafe and Bakery

Location: 1358 Williamson St, Madison, WI 53703

A little further away is the Lazy Jane Cafe and Bakery. It’s located in an old house on Willy Street, filled with interesting knick knacks and old furniture. Order the all the scones you can.


5. Tex Tubb’s Taco Palace

Location: 2009 Atwood Ave, Madison, WI 53704

On the other end of Willy Street is Tex Tubbs Taco Palace – I know you wouldn’t hear taco and think brunch but they do a pretty amazing job of it. And they have a stellar salsa bar.

6. Bassett Street Brunch Club

Location: 444 W Johnson St, Madison, WI 53703

If you are gluten-free, Bassett Street Brunch Club is very accommodating. Except for the fried chicken on top of a doughnut (pictured above), that you can’t have gluten free. They serve breakfast all day so don’t worry if you get up a little late, they’ve got ya covered.
