What’s better than starting out a lazy Sunday? Brunch. It doesn’t matter if you are a breakfast or a lunch person all your gastronomic needs are met with brunch and it’s the perfect excuse to slow down and hang out with friends – new and old.

No matter where you are in the world, brunch makes everything better whether it’s simply to cure a hangover, hang with your favorite people, or refuel after a sporting it up.

Girls That Roam was pleased to find on a trip to Cleveland three of the city’s best brunch spots. These three places are sure to satiate the hungriest of the hungry with savory and sweet breakfast favorites and some surprises served up in healthy portions. Many of these hot brunch spots even offer vegetarian and vegan options.

Latitude 41n

Located in the avant garde Detroit Shoreway Neighborhood, one of many of Cleveland’s neighborhoods that are being reinvented, Latitude 41n (5712 Detroit Avenue; 216-961-0000; EatatLatitude41n.com) is an eclectic brunch spot owned by Kathy Brown. You can start your diet on Monday as this funky spot serves up unusual brunch concoctions such as the Mongo Grubbo Cakes, Lat 41n Kick*ss French Toast, and Pizza for Benedict.

Sweet tooth’s delight with the Mongo Grubbo Cakes and the Lat 41n Kick*ss French Toast. These options are desert for breakfast. If you weren’t awake and buzzing before brunch, you will be energized by the sugar high stepping out into the lazy Sunday afternoon.

If you want a healthier choice chose the Pan-Seared Oatmeal. Of course brunch wouldn’t be brunch without a decent selection of omelets offers up a decent selection.
