5 best brunch buffets in Charlotte



Charlotteans are no strangers to brunching. We take our endless mimosas, outdoor patios, and eggs benedict seriously. But for some of us, ordering just one brunch dish isn’t nearly enough. We need endless options of waffles, fruit, pastries, omelets, and more. Take your Sunday brunch to the next level with these 5 amazing buffets.
