If you’re of the legions who live by a Sunday motto of “Brunch or Bust,” this one’s for you. Because sometimes you want so much more than coffee and a bagel. When you’ve got time to sit and simmer in syrup-laden plates, salty bites of bacon and sweet ‘n’ sour mimosas, East Bay restaurants take the time to seduce you with their artful brunch menus.   

Take BART sleepy-eyed to your big feast and leave on BART in a food coma dreaming about what you just experienced. These BARTable Oakland and Berkeley brunch locations have got your morning and mid-day hunger (er, hangover) needs covered.
