Best Brunch in B-ham?

Looking for affordable, yummy Sunday brunch spot in Birmingham (please don't suggest Five Points Grill, as we have had two embarrassingly bad meals there and will never return.) Recommendations?

    Cosmos and Rojo
    Veranda has great Jazz Brunch

    1. I still think L. Indica in the Little Professor in Homewood has one of the best brunches going. Try the smoked salmon with poached egg and wasabi cream. Get the sweet potato hash on the side.

      The Open Door also has a pretty decent brunch. Live jazz is nice.

        Open Door is not bad, but try Chez Lulu.

      2. I second Chez-Lulu.

        Also, if you're willing to drive out to Vestavia, I enthusiastically recommend Klinglers German Bakery. It's not exactly "brunch atmosphere", but their chocolate waffles are really, really, really good.

          What about City Hall Diner in Vestavia? Any reports?

            Ive eaten breakfast at City Hall Diner once, it was pretty good, but not great. I imagine it would be fine for brunch.

            I really enjoy Open Door. V Richards is pretty good too.

            I will have to Try Chez-Lulu!

        2. Sol Y Luna has a great brunch. I'm not sure if they do it every Sunday, but it was very good the last time I went. I've heard good things about Open Door.
