Nation's Top Brunch Cities Ranked By Yelp, Chicago Tops The List


Sure, we already know we're the best city for pizza here in Chicago (ahem, Jon Stewart), but the food accolades don't stop there for the Windy City, of course.

According to Yelp, Chicago is also tops when it comes to brunch.

The popular review website ranked top brunch cities based on a fairly straight-forward formula: the "total number of highly-rated brunch spots, the proportion of total restaurants that serve brunch and percentage of brunch restaurants that are rated 4 stars or higher."

Rounding out the top five were Minneapolis/St. Paul, Denver, Portland and San Francisco respectively.

Chicago's Broadway Cellars was also one of five restos to receive a special nod for being among the nation's top restaurants when it comes to number of mentions of "mimosas" within their reviews. Radish in San Francisco took the top spot there.


Do you agree with Yelp's selections for the nation's top brunch cities or does their formula need tinkering?
