Little Rock, Arkansas is definitely not among the largest cities in the US, but it does offer the life of one. Home to many restaurants, bars, places for entertainment and historical sights, Little Rock hides in its neighborhoods priceless gems with good food, lovely ambiance and friendly staff. Here are the best brunch spots in town.

The Root Cafe

Homemade is not really homemade unless it grows in the backyard. The Root Café in downtown Little Rock is the best place to visit because all of their products are Arkansas-grown. The café is unique with its rich choice of local meals, workshops, and entertaining contests, such as the hot pepper eating and the beard growing contests. Built to specifically sustain Arkansas’ economy and farms and Little Rock’s community, the café offers a wide variety of choices for all your breakfast and lunch needs. The scrumptious shiitake Benny and the spicy banh mi are certainly to die for.

Cafe Bossa Nova

Cafe Bossa Nova is family owned, and there is nothing there that you won’t like. The service there is top notch. The staff is very friendly and create a very welcoming personal experience. Their daily specials are definitely worth trying, and the food is either good or better than the service. If you want to try some authentic Brazilian food, then Cafe Bossa Nova is the place.

One Eleven At The Capital

There’s nothing better than to visit a new place and to dive into their traditional cuisine. One Eleven at the Capital is one of those places where guests get fully immersed in Southern hospitality and traditional meals supported by the newly decorated and renovated restaurant space. The new chic New York style interior corresponds to the high class service of the restaurant and the handcrafted meals of James Beard-award-winning chef Joel Antunes. Some of the meals worth considering are the chef’s special on the breakfast menu, organic risotto with mushroom and Parmesan, and the roast halibut.

The bowls of soup are great, and the chicken and waffles are to die for. The restaurant is quite elegantly looking and their menu, although not large, offers a nice selection of meals.
