The capital of Virginia has a booming restaurant scene. Many of the city’s food haunts serve up a fantastic breakfast or brunch that’s not to be missed. Let’s take a look at the top 10 spots to start the day off right in Richmond. After all, they do say that breakfast (or brunch, for the later folk) is the most important meal of the day.
For those in search of a breakfast spot with a hipster vibe, 821 Cafe is the place to go. It’s appropriately located near the artistic Carytown district and has an ambiance of a neighborhood favorite. The fare is darn great too; two brunch highlights are the French toast stuffed with Nutella and the rosemary potatoes. There’s also an array of omelettes to pick from.

Despite the name, Lunch or Supper does indeed serve brunch and a fantastic one at that. The decadent dishes are creative, as is the setting, which mixes quirky details with ornate fixtures. The Train Wreck is a combo of two buttermilk biscuits, house-made sausage, scrambled eggs and American cheese that is smothered in gravy. Another house speciality is The Crab Nebula, a pan-seared crab sandwich topped with lettuce, tomato and sriracha aioli.
