Brunch: the magnificent mixture of breakfast and lunch foods that allows for a slow, relaxed morning, accompanied by a mimosa or two. What’s better than that? North Dakota is home to some of the best brunch spots in the Midwest. Here are our 10 favorites!
Easily Fargo’s most popular brunch location, Granite City offers a brunch buffet that includes all the staples and eggs made to order. You can also enjoy endless mimosas for only $5 more. The restaurant has won several national awards for its amazing brunches.
Another award-winning brunch option that offers more food than one person could possibly consume. The Sunday brunch buffet includes eggs made to order, a waffle station, and chef-carved prime rib or flank steak.

The Ramada Inn is home to the Aroma Restaurant, the perfect place to go if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing brunch experience.
