Sunday Brunch Buffets & Sunday Breakfast Locations

Ahhh, it’s Sunday, and you just completed a very fun-filled and busy weekend with lots of activities with family, friends and out of town guests. Either everyone has gone to church or got up too late. Either way it’s too late to cook, but everyone is hungry and it’s too early to say good bye to the weekend. That’s where everyone jumps in the car and goes out to Brunch. Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch eaten usually during the late morning to early afternoon, generally served from 11am up to 3pm and regularly has some form of alcoholic drink.

Some folks are looking for a buffet style where you can pick and choose from dozens of choices and enjoy all you can eat. You will find below the many Northwest Indiana restaurants that offer this kind of brunch service. After all, Brunch is where the idea of “Buffets” took on mass appeal in the first place. See Items 1 thru 13 below!

We have separated the buffet brunches from the Restaurant that serve brunch from a menu, in which guests select specific items which are served to them by waitstaff. (items 14 thru 35 below.) Restaurant brunch meals range from relatively inexpensive brunches available at diners and family restaurants to expensive brunches served at high-end restaurants and bistros.
