The theory put forth by the Historian in a 1895 issue of the British magazine Weekly Hunter’s is titled “A Plea: Brunch,” an article that mentions Mr. Guy Beringer as the first to publish about the concept of brunch.
Instead of enduring the heavy ordeal of a church-post Sunday dinner, early England’s brunch on Sunday would make for a brighter life for carousers on Saturday night, eliminating the need to get up early to get coffee or tea. That’s why a new meal, served around noon, starts with savory pies and meats.
It doesn’t matter how much it is, I don’t have any desire to clean up or prepare myself after my precious weekend time. These days, I feel like I need a delicious meal and less of a hangover cure, like a grown-up. It gives you a lot of reward for a little bit of personal cleanup and effort. Brunch has evolved over the years, but it could be taken care of without the need for a shower or worrying about the presentability of a cold slice of pizza and a beer from the fridge, granted.
It’s really good and if you want breakfast or lunch, there is no hurry and no need to worry. The menu is designed for children, so there is a full menu of French toast, waffles, and pancakes. It’s a family gathering where there is no specific menu for kids, so everyone can enjoy. Today’s brunch can be a crowded table filled with boozy friends having a terrific time.
Please inform us if there are any other brunch favorites you know of on the island. Some places may not specifically have a separate brunch menu, but their breakfast and lunch options overlap enough for you to have a variety of choices. What we were mainly interested in was the quality and creativity of the cocktails, rather than the quantity (Oh my, how I have matured). A few establishments offer unlimited brunch, but that is not a requirement. The intention is to showcase a diverse range of new, notable, and intriguing brunch options on Long Island, and to provide you with a few ideas to enhance your weekend. Please note that the following list is not meant to be comprehensive or exhaustive.

Jazz Brunch at Big Daddy’s
That is a crazy place to go. The house we are making is marinated with bean string, and the garnish is great. The mix is homemade and Mary Bloody recommends it. Tommy Kurtz, the manager, recommends the entrée and offers a complimentary drink with it. There are also other bonuses. While you dine, you can enjoy blues or jazz played by three-piece or two-piece bands. Another bonus is the live music. The other bonus is that you get a complimentary drink with your entrée. Big Daddy’s in Massapequa, Bay Shore, has been serving up Cajun dishes since 1992 and is inspired by the jazz brunches of New Orleans. They offer specialties like the Jambalaya Omelette and Hash Andouille with eggs cooked the way you like them. The atmosphere is jubilant, like a honky-tonk roadhouse.
On Sundays, the address 1 Park Lane in Massapequa is open from 11:00 a.M. To 3:00 p.M.
Brunch at Thyme is difficult to surpass. The location is ideal for brunch. The atmosphere is sophisticated and refined, with a view of a pond in Roslyn. (And there is valet parking available.) The cuisine is also refined and tasteful. Some of the dishes that loyal customers insist on keeping on the menu are grilled hanger steak and eggs, quiche, and challah French toast. Over the course of 13 years, Thyme has developed a very loyal customer base. Thyme also offers classic dishes. A standout dish is the Thyme Benedict, served on a potato cake that resembles a latke but with a more intense flavor profile. The potato cake is crispy on the outside and tender and fluffy on the inside, making it the perfect base for the Hollandaise sauce. This dish is the signature item on the menu. It is an incredible value at $22 for a prix fixe meal that includes a complimentary drink. We suggest adding a specialty blood orange margarita to your order; it provides a refreshing citrus note and sweetness that balances out the richness of the brunch. However, it is worth noting that Thyme may be a bit more formal for dinner. Families with children will still feel comfortable dining at brunch.
On Saturdays and Sundays, you can visit 8 Tower Place in Roslyn from 11:30 a.M. To 3:00 p.M.
As Authentic as Brunch Can Be in the Local Area
You can find a brunch that is dedicated to producing local dishes and wines, including hand-crafted dishes and beers, at Root Rustic in Woodbury. It is not holier-than-thou or sanctimonious, but rather a warm and casual atmosphere with a good feel about it. The house is a kind of decadence, with a spectacular presentation. The champion Chopped Tom Gloster runs the place, with ingredients sourced from Ronnybrook Farm in Ancramdale and the Catskills, such as runny maple syrup and fried eggs topped with short rib on a classic Long Island sandwich. The sandwiches are piled insanely high, and there are also homemade biscuits and cornbread, creamy devilled eggs from MarGene Farms, and the perfect Bloody Mary made with Christy Brinkley’s Bellissima prosecco and cold-pressed mimosa. You would have a hard time finding a more brunch than this at Root Rustic in Woodbury.
The atmosphere of Novitá, a modernist design with leather booths, is chic and casual. They also offer specialty cocktails and a la carte options. For brunch, you can enjoy bottomless mimosas, Bloody Marys, screwdrivers, and an entrée or appetizer for $29.95. Depending on the season, their salads feature gorgonzola and basil, truffle arancini, and thin-crust Napolitan pizzas, as well as paninis and Italian sausage. They also serve a Tuscan scramble with bacon instead of prosciutto and put an Italian twist on classic brunch dishes like eggs Benedict. City Garden restaurant has been innovative with their brunch menu, offering something “new” called Novitá.
860 Franklin Avenue, Garden City, is open for visitors on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 p.M. To 3:00 p.M.
Salumi, located in Massapequa, is a well-known Italian-Iberian wine bar and tapas restaurant with a family-friendly and amazing atmosphere. The décor is anchored by a bar and warm wooden tables, creating a welcoming and cozy environment. The menu offers a variety of delicious options, including olives with a mix of bloody and chardonnay bourbon. For those who prefer wine, there are marvelous bloody or moscato bubbly options, as well as red Spanish wine, a de tinto, to try. In addition to the olives, the menu also features variations of cheese, such as sheep’s cheese or smoked anchovies, and loaded toasts. One dish that stands out on the breakfast menu is the Madame Croque, which is a savory and crunchy toast topped with creamy love. I especially enjoy having it with crispy prosciutto, poached eggs, and salsa pepper piquillo. Another delicious option is the Sunrise cakes, which are creamy polenta cakes served with sunny-side-up eggs and the representative Piquillo sauce. In fact, every dish on the menu is great, and I think we’ve tried every egg dish. This is why I feel like a breakfast cooking horde when we come to Salumi. I want to show off our local places and share our obsession with this amazing restaurant, especially when we have houseguests. Since becoming a parent, I have become an early riser, so I usually arrive at Salumi for brunch on Sunday mornings. It’s the only time I can get my crave-worthy blood sausage, morcilla, for dinner and brunch. The bar and tapas atmosphere at Salumi is perfect for brunch, and it’s a place where we can linger and enjoy breakfast earlier in the day.
On Saturdays and Sundays, you can visit 5600 Merrick Road, Massapequa from 11:00 a.M. To 3:30 p.M.
Experience the Affection
The top selections consist of seasonal flapjacks, filled French toast (oh my goodness), and Eggs Benedict. It’s effortless to celebrate whenever necessary because the adaptability makes it technically not brunch. The midday meal menu is accessible until 4 p.M., And the Love Lane breakfast is available at 7 a.M. On weekdays and 8 a.M. On weekends (although you may have to wait for that alcoholic beverage on Sundays) until 2 p.M. You will deem me a prodigy once you have experienced it, but you may consider me biased when it pertains to brunch. Proprietor Carolyn Iannone has been one of my preferred individuals ever since we collaborated as associates in the Paumanok tasting room many summers ago, and Love Lane Kitchen is one of my family’s favored establishments for any meal. Love Lane brings a ray of sunshine to brunch with ever-changing effervescent cocktails such as the French 75 (gin, fresh lime, simple syrup, and prosecco), the Merry Berry (aperol, cranberry, sparkling, and fresh lemon juice), or the Harvest Mimosa (NY apple cider and prosecco with a cinnamon sugar rim). Love Lane is always filled with brightness.
Love Lane, Mattituck is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 a.M. To 4:00 p.M.
The drinks are seasonally changing and innovative; for your brunch, try the 75 Rose, a homemade lychee and rose syrup drink with a sparkling twist. The menu includes local favorites and spans from east to west, featuring oysters. In addition to seafood options, there are also non-seafood choices, such as the refreshing homemade Greek yogurt raita with a veggie farmer’s burger and sunny-side-up avocado toast. A popular dish, especially the butter-poached lobster roll, is the shrimp and Andouille sausage with grits; the seafood menu boasts a wide variety. The brunch menu is a fun combination of breakfast and lunch options. Ryan and Morgan, who left their fashion and finance careers respectively, decided that it was the perfect time to launch a project with their kids, so they opened this classic oyster bar and seafood establishment in the increasingly trendy Bay Shore town. This establishment is still owned by the Flynn family, who originally opened it in 1937.
The location of the Oceanography Institute in Nha Trang is 61 West Main Street, Bay Shore. It can be visited on Saturdays between 12:00 p.M. And 4:00 p.M. As well as on Sundays from 11:30 a.M. To 3:30 p.M.
American Beech Tree
If you want something similar but lighter, you may want to try the egg sandwich. I won’t mention that it is available for brunch without writing this, so let me write it for you. The sandwich consists of an egg on a pretzel bun, topped with caramelized onions, roast mushrooms, garlic aioli, and Gruyere cheese. My son can’t be weaned off the Beech Burger, which is served with a pretzel bun, caramelized onions, mushrooms, garlic aioli, and Gruyere cheese. You should try the amazing spaghetti squash latkes or a seasonal fresh omelette with bacon and lemon aioli. The go-to option is the chicken fried buttermilk, accompanied by crispy Brussels sprouts. According to Kayleigh Macchirole, the floor manager, it is a must-try for first-time timers. Brunch in Greenport at Beech is really laid-back and cool, but it is also a top choice for any meal. It is one of my favorite restaurants in one of my favorite towns on Long Island, American Island. The décor feels like the deck of an old-school luxury sailing vessel, with wonderful natural light. Start off your preferred brunch at Fresh Farm with the Apricot Liqueur and Vodka cocktail.
300 Greenport Avenue, Greenport.
Relish in Park Kings is a modern lunch spot with clean lines. It has a welcoming and familiar feel, like a neighborhood coffee shop counter. They offer their own brunch, where you can make your own fluffy omelettes with names like Nissequogue and Satur Farms kale. They serve breakfast until 4 p.M., But they don’t have a brunch per se. However, they do serve brunch-like beverages such as local microbrews and mimosas. They have a variety of sandwiches, including chicken chorizo, homemade onion and fire-roasted pepper, and sweet fennel sausage. The staff is very friendly and the crowd is multigenerational, which makes for a cheerful and family-friendly atmosphere. The famous French toast and cinnamon ricotta pancakes are justifiably a crowd favorite.
The operating hours on Saturdays are from 7:00 a.M. To 4:00 p.M., While on Sundays, they are from 7:00 a.M. To 3:00 p.M. The location can be found at 22 Pulaski Road.

First and South
You will need to go to South & First for brunch as they will be closing in March for renovations and reopening on April 1, Easter Sunday. South & First is located in the heart of Greenport, offering a wonderful laid-back maritime atmosphere. It has been a great platform for young chefs since it opened in 2012. You can quickly enjoy dishes like eggs, skirt steak, crab cakes Benedict, and waffles with honey tangerine and chicken. Make sure to check out Hoblin’s seasonal chalkboards, which support local artists and are located in a repurposed and renovated old Victorian building. Their omelettes change weekly depending on what is available from local farms like Lee Sang and Sep’s Fork North. One of their popular drinks is the homemade Huckleberry North 44 Bloody Mary and Lemonade, which is made with simple syrup and lemon.
The address for the Greenport location is 100 South Street and it is open on Sundays from 10:00 a.M. To 3:00 p.M.
