Brunch is a weekend staple -- sometimes even a necessity to start the day. With New Year's Day falling on Saturday this year, brunch is even more important for the holiday weekend. Champagne can leave a nasty headache and the Mummer's parade starts early. Aim for a good start to 2016 by brunching it up at any of these local restaurants.
This restaurant offers a spin on a tried-and-true breakfast favorite. Enjoy a fried oyster, bacon and egg sandwich (the F.O.B.E, $12) designed expressly for your New Year's Day needs.
11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
1516 Sansom St.
Have to get up early? Head to either 16th and Sansom streets or 19th and Market streets for brunch. Either spot will serve up breakfast at 8 a.m.
8 a.m to 11 p.m.
121 S. 16th St.
This isn't your average brunch spot, but you don't want 2016 to be an average year. Head to the Museum for a parfait station, salad bar, selection of mini desserts, fresh squeezed juices and a selection of brunch dishes. Reservations are required for this event.
