Top Five Brunch Spots in Florence
While breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, in The Shoals, we think brunch is even better!
Here are our top five recommendations for where to grab brunch in downtown Florence!
1. Big Bad Breakfast
With locations across Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina, and Mississippi, this southern chain is known for its savory breakfast staples! Located on Court Street beneath the Stricklin Hotel, Big Bad Breakfast serves breakfast (and lunch) from 7:00 AM - 2:00 PM 7 days a week. The next time you're in town, be sure to give their Shrimp & Grits or "Redneck" Benny a try! For those of you who prefer to wash your brunch down with something a little stronger than milk, their specialty cocktails are sure to do the trick!

If you're looking for a gourmet brunch spot on the weekends, Odette is the way to go! Served only on Saturdays, their brunch menu items are carefully crafted to bring you the best of southern charm and upscale classics, which is shown through their delectable Fried Green Tomato Benedict and Whole Fried Okra appetizer!
Rivertown Coffee Company is a local favorite spot for all the coffee lovers and college students out there. Located just blocks from UNA, Rivertown is oftentimes a go-to for students to study! Between the hours of 11 AM and 2 PM, both their breakfast and lunch menus are available. Some of their classic breakfast options are their Pimento Cheese & Bacon, and locals love their paninis for lunch! When you can't decide which you're feeling, why not order from both menus and call it brunch?
Located inside the Marriott Shoals Hotel & Spa, Swampers Bar and Grille is a hit amongst hotel guests and locals alike. Complete with a variety of delicious breakfast options, Swamper's menu has something for everyone! There really is no wrong choice, but our personal favorite brunch items on their menu are their Chicken & Waffles and their Salmon & Egg Salad.
5. Jack's Place Bistro
Last but not least, Jack's Place is a luxurious can't-beat option for brunch on the weekends! Their Sunday brunch menu offers delicious staples such as seasonal scramblers, quiches, frittatas.
