Brunch is arguably the most celebrated restaurant meal of the week, especially on Sundays and especially when you're hungover.
For folks who enjoy an alcoholic beverage with their bacon and eggs benny – or as some like to call it, the hair of the dog – mimosas and bloody marys on the menu are a must. Even when you have to bring your own alcohol.
Below we've gathered five of Philadelphia's best BYO-alcohol brunch spots, because sometimes you just need to be waited on.
Locations in Northern Liberties and Southwest Center City
The restaurant focuses on using fresh and locally grown and raised ingredients when possible, which also means fresh-squeezed orange juice and grapefruit juices that blend perfectly with Champagne or your alcohol of choice.
Locations throughout Philadelphia, as well as Wynnewood and Collingswood, N.J.
The restaurant's menus feature an array of dishes that are as delicious as they are unique, like the "Barking Chihuahua," a flour tortilla with scrambled eggs, black beans, red peppers and pepper jack cheese, all topped with sour cream and marinara sauce.

The Farmacy has just the prescription to cure any hangover or empty stomach.
