Every brunch lover knows the disappointment of pulling up to a restaurant only to find breakfast service has ended and lunch is the only available option. Fans of the hybrid meal want the best of both worlds, and nothing less will do. Thankfully, these six St. Louis restaurants keep a true blend of brunch rolling all day long, so you’ll never have to worry about what time you need to get there to snag your favorite brunch-y meal.
Hatch’d STL opened May 2022 as a father-son duo bringing all-day brunch to Princeton Heights, as reported by Feast. The extensive menu consists of comforting yet eccentric dishes like the Edmond Dantes sandwich with egg-battered toast, ham, cheddar and strawberry compote; the Fat Elvis waffles with peanut butter, banana, bacon and chocolate chips; and the Hot in Hurr skillet with chorizo, grilled jalapeño, onion, green chile salsa, queso and chopped tomato. The homey space features warm wood interiors and personal touches like family-made needlepoint work and Cardinals bobbleheads. Hatch’d is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Have a Cow Urban Farm Store & Cafe
Have a Cow Cattle Company LLC originated with one family’s desire to serve the public. The farm ultimately opened up its own farm store and counter-service café close to St. Louis city’s Lafayette Square. There, you’ll find a menu filled with lunch and all-day breakfast offerings. We’d recommend the Porker (a BLT that’s heavy on the bacon), the Ranch Hand salad (a roasted medley of veggies served hot on a bed of greens) and the quiche (puff pastry filled with cheese, onions and bell peppers). Or keep it classic with the Have a Cow burger. Have a Cow also offers a delicious drink menu featuring loose leaf teas from Piper & Tea Co., espresso drinks, craft beers and cocktails.
