Whether it’s a special occasion or just an ordinary Sunday, spring is a time for warm temperatures and getting out of the house — so why not meet friends for a weekend brunch?

Try Otto’s in Covington for an eclectic mix of brunch items including casseroles, salads and Banana Cheesecake French Toast. Or, try Olives at the Ludlow Garage in Clifton, whose Saturday and Sunday brunch includes a wide variety of omelets and French press coffee. Nearby in Northside is Honey, which serves upscale brunch cuisine in a casual atmosphere. In Hyde Park, Echo’s weekend brunch, including waffles and western omelets, reflects its comfort food roots.
