Without a doubt, brunch is quite possibly the best invention to ever come from humankind. It combines all the nourishment and delicious foods of breakfast with some of the best savory items of lunch. And if that isn’t good enough on its own, this mealtime also throws in a mimosa or Bloody Mary (or two!) to make sure things are really awesome.
Whatever it is that a person could ever want in a meal can pretty much be found in a brunch. As you head into 2022, here are some amazing locations around Cobb County that could make for a delightful brunch gathering.
Mac’s Chophouse is a strong first choice for any brunch focused on savory foods or meats. Mac’s operates like a steakhouse, so when it comes to brunch, their steak and eggs, bacon, and sausage are all of the finest quality.
In addition, the atmosphere of an old-school speakeasy goes well with the morning cocktail. Whatever your preference in a brunch, Mac’s Chophouse offers a fantastic selection of options. If you’re not quite sure what to get, perhaps consider the Lazy Susan Brunch Platter, which has a little bit of everything, from salmon bagels to French toast.
One thing to keep in mind, though, is that there is a dress code for the establishment. So to keep with the finer atmosphere and food, do be prepared to show up in your Sunday best if you pay a visit! But there’s nothing like dressing up as a group for a dashing brunch opportunity, right?

The Basecamp at Kennesaw
If you’re looking for a more low-key or flexible brunch option, the Basecamp at Kennesaw offers breakfast every day of the week, with weekend specials being the only thing missing for a casual weekday brunch.
They offer all the breakfast classics, with the house special being a take on chicken and waffles, adding granny smith apples and substituting a Challah French Toast in lieu of the basic waffle. All the other items on their menu are phenomenal, with the real winner being the affordable price point of the establishment.
One way to try and get a taste of all Basecamp has to offer might be one of their skillets, allowing you a generous portion of potatoes, eggs, a meat of your choice, and bread on the side.
Simply add a pancake on a side, and that covers all the various breakfast avenues you could possibly want. Come to Basecamp any day of the week for a brunch treat!
