Continuing on my quest to find the best restaurants to enjoy for brunch has led me to The Mercury located inside Ponce City Market. Ponce City Market is a mixed-use development with shopping, dining and entertainment in the Old Fourth Ward area of Atlanta and its right on the Atlanta BeltLine.
Located on the second floor of the “food hall” is The Mercury. The menu is classic American with a 1960s decor inside. The restaurant recently launched its Bottomless Brunch Buffet which is for sure the ideal way to go on a Sunday afternoon.
Happy Sunday!! 😁☀️ Headed to the @themercuryatl for the bottomless brunch buffet check my Insta-story 👆🏾😋 #brunch #atlbrunch #happilyeating #midtownatlanta #poncecitymarket #Foodwriter #FoodieChats #Foodiesofinstagram #Foodblogger #AtlFoodie #weloveatl #AtlantaBlogger #Atlanta #blackfoodbloggers #instalike
I am one of those people who enjoys a smorgasbord of items so the option of a buffet for brunch is right up my alley. All of the brunch staples are attendance:
Carving Station – Features prime rib, turkey and pork all sliced to order.
Waffle Station – Get made-to-order waffles topped with fresh assorted fruit, chocolate chips and whipped cream. This was the best waffle EVER! It melted in your mouth and there was something about that syrup 🙂
Omelet Station – Almost anything you can think of you can add to your omelet. Bacon, various cheeses, mushrooms, red onion, scallion, spinach, asparagus and a host of other items. The omelet was light, fluffy and perfectly cooked.
Buffet – The buffet itself has an assortment of hot and cold items. There were 4 different salads that included a Greek, Caesar, pasta and fruit salad, roasted vegetables (brussels sprouts, broccoli, red peppers and onions), home fries, bacon, sausage, ham, fried chicken and grits. On the other side, was croissants, assorted pastries, bagels, English muffins, fresh fruit, non-fat yogurt, granola and an assortment of cold cereals.
This is great option for a group or as a casual day time date. I recommend going when you have time to spare so that way you can pace yourself and try everything. I mean that’s what buffets are about lol. I would stay away from the buffet for kids because of the price tag and they likely won’t eat very much. But if your kid is food obsessed like I was at that age then they would certainly enjoy it.
After brunch, head over to the entrance out to the beltline. Vendors are set-up selling various handmade items from clothing to jewelry and skin care.
Bottomless Brunch Buffet is every Sunday starting at 11am. The price is $34.95 per person and bottomless mimosas and bloody mary’s are $19.95 per person. The regular brunch menu is available if you would prefer to order a la carte.
