Don’t wait until Sunday when you can have one of the city’s best brunches on Saturday

If you’re a fan of Local Three Kitchen & Bar’s Sunday brunch, get in line—literally. The much-loved brunch is served buffet style, with guests weaving through the restaurant’s 6,000-square-foot kitchen while they chat with chefs and pile on their plates. It’s been a staple on Atlantans’ Sunday schedule since it debuted in 2010. But now you can indulge on your favorite dishes both days of the weekend. The brunch menu changes daily, and it’s all you can eat. Most portions are small, so you’re encouraged to go back and try everything, from breakfast staples such as eggs and bacon to lunch entrées and seasonal desserts such as pastry chef Gary Scarborough’s strawberry trifle (see recipe below).

Brunch is served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is $24.93 for adults and $12.53 for kids 6 to 12.
