Bistro Quai- Grevenmacher
When: BOTH Saturday and Sunday, next is on the 2nd of December 2018! (normally brunch is once a month, check details)
Contact: Tel: 24 55 87 75
Every Sunday this hip Bonnevoie bar turns into a packed destination restaurant. Committed to serving mostly bio products, their normal weekday menu is replaced with 5 brunch options including smoked salmon, full English, sweet and vegetarian. The food is sound and they are certainly the most creative of the group. Be prepared to wait for your food as the kitchen sometimes finds it hard to keep up. Also book ahead. The restaurant is small and seats are in demand.
- Good for: Boozy Brunch with friends.
When: Monday – Sunday, 11am to 3pm/ Saturday and Sunday Brunch (reservations recommended)

Hotel Parc Alvisse
- Good for: Brunch with littles.

If you find yourself wanting brunch paired with an event then head to the Abbey. Their Jazz Brunch feels like an event and the perfect place to take out of town guests. The food is served buffet style, and features more Luxembourgish fare than anything else, but they have some brunch staples and lots of different meats to choose from. The music is different every week and when the sun is out they move everyone on to the courtyard.
- Good for: Bebopping Jazz cats who like a bit of brunch served with standards.
When: Every Sunday morning the Brasserie is rhythmed by live jazz (Apéro Jazz) from 11.00 am on (free entry) and a luxurious Brunch buffet from 12pm to 3pm

Come á la Maison
This place is nothing if not constantly modifying their space. Pair fine dining with Italian clothing designers, eclectic furniture shopping, throw in some music and voilà! You have a Sunday brunch experience to dream about. Including dessert and Italian charcuterie, the service is warm and welcoming to keep your spirits up. This place is packed and they’ve nailed the Italian spirit and romance while adding authentic cuisine. Buon Appetito!
- Good for: An authentic Italian family meal without your Nonna telling you ‘Eat more! You are too skinny!’

This isn’t one we’ve actually tried but it’s on our list because we love going there in the evenings so the brunch is a ‘must try’ in our book. After all, who doesn’t love a bit of contemporary art with a side of brunch. After all, this gorgeous space describes itself as ‘an artistic and experimental think tank heading for the latest trends in the art scene.’ Yes, please.
- Good for: When you’d like something a bit different; contemporary art in the heart of the city.
La Table du Pain
Here is one place that believes breakfast is, in fact the most important meals of the day. Their brunch is served up EARLY so great for those who are starving at 6:55, (you know who you are!) Skip the pancakes as this ain’t no American diner. Think rustic-chic with french country decor. Big heavy wooden tables with fresh out the oven bread and unprocessed/ recently squeezed orange juice go nicely with a bit of organic muesli.
- Good for: The name says it all, it’s french breakfast, don’t cha know?

Child-friendly dining in an art museum might sound like a contradiction in terms, but the open space, friendly staff and inspiring surroundings manage to make this a stress-free, joyful experience. They also have a lactose-free brunch menu.
- Good for: an educational, inspirational dining experience while the smaller one can run as there is loads of space!

Ah, Ready. One of our favourite coffee shops, with organic, allergen-free, healthy food, fabulous coffee and bohemian look. The brunch is only on on the 1st Sunday of every month, but is so great we had to list it (N.B. it sells out quickly when it comes online!). Their menu sometimes seems designed as a hangover cure, from the healthy (chia pudding, banana bread) to the wake-up call (siracha and sweet potato wraps, apple, carrot and ginger juice). And free water and wifi. Perfect after a large Saturday night.
- Good for: the morning after the night before
When: Tues-Fri 7am- 6pm; Sat 9am-4pm; Brunch on 1st Sunday – book here for either the 10:30am-1pm or 1pm- 3pm slot
Montefiore Sul Palco
This high-end Italian brasserie is especially attentive to dietary intolerances and the menu is organic. An all-you-can-eat experience with both hot and cold, sweet and savoury dishes and smooth jazz playing in the background. Bliss.
- Good for: customers with special dietary needs who don’t want to compromise on taste.
When: Mon – Thurs, Sun 7am-8pm/Fri 7am-4pm/ Brunch on Sundays from 11am
