Even though things slow down on Sundays in Cayman, brunch is taken to a whole other level. Sunday brunches here are an elaborate, all-afternoon affair, where mimosas flow freely, scrumptious food is savoured to the very last morsel, and friends and family gather joyfully without a care in the world. Here is a rundown of some of Cayman’s best brunch spots.
If you want to dine in a relaxed nautical setting that offers globally inspired cuisine, then Anchor & Den’s Boulangerie Brunch at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort is not to be missed. With a varied weekly changing menu, handcrafted Grab & Go cocktails infused with botanical blends and bottomless glasses of De Chanceny Crémant de Loire Champagne, it’s the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
You can choose from a wide array of dishes, such as mouth-watering Indian cuisine, fresh sushi, tasty beef Wellington and traditional American breakfast; whilst the charcuterie station offers a delightful selection of regional cheeses and homemade baked breads — all to be enjoyed in a stylish, fun and casual setting. Sunday, noon to 3 p.m.
At 24-feet above sea level, Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa’s Ave restaurant serves an elegant Sunday brunch both indoors and on its impressive terrace.
Classic food stations include cold meats, cheeses, breads and seasonal fruits, as well as traditional breakfast fare, such as omelettes and pancakes. There’s also a wide selection of hand-rolled sushi and fresh seafood, including an oyster bar. Hot food stations include comfort foods like fresh ravioli and beef stew, as well as Caribbean favourites like rice and peas and plantains; and a ramen noodle station is Ave’s newest brunch offering, which is a big hit with guests.
Topping off the magnificent spread is a decadent dessert station, craft cocktails and optional bottomless bubbles. Add in panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea and it’s the ideal way to spend your Sunday afternoon. Sunday, noon to 3 p.m.
With a new brunch buffet offered each week, Luca, located within the Caribbean Club, has been a staple amongst locals for years.
Offering incredible views of Seven Mile Beach, the contemporary upscale restaurant serves a traditional buffet brunch; carving station with timeless dishes like rack of lamb and beef Wellington; create-your-own-pasta station; and an outstanding selection of fresh seafood, including sushi, raw oysters, smoked salmon and more.
With optional bottomless prosecco and a dessert station filled with sweets and European cheeses, it’s truly the perfect day in paradise. Sunday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Camana Bay’s quaint waterfront restaurant, Agua, offers a twist on the traditional buffet brunch with its Family-Style Sunday Lunch. Italians would call it pranzo della nonna (translation: grandmother’s lunch), and that is exactly the kind of spirit it is meant to evoke.
Whilst Agua is rooted in Italian cuisine, it also takes inspiration from Peru, serving up Peruvian ceviches, anticuchos and seafood. With an all-you-can-eat menu that changes weekly, you can expect locally caught fresh seafood served with Peruvian flare and organic pastas prepared with Italian tradition and passion.
Whether you dine in the bright and airy restaurant or al fresco on the breezy waterfront patio, course after course of delicious food comes your way, as well as optional bottles of prosecco and wine. Once the dishes are taken away, another course is served, so you never have to leave your table (and you can eat as many courses as your belly can handle!) — giving new meaning to a “lazy Sunday afternoon.” Sunday, 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Open seasonally and offered weekly from November through Mother’s Day, Seven’s Sunday Champagne Brunch is an extravagant event that also happens to be family friendly.
Located in The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, overlooking the gorgeous Seven Mile Beach for which it was named, this sumptuous buffet includes all the breakfast favourites: an extensive raw bar, the freshest sushi and seafood, carving stations, exquisite desserts and more.
Top it off with the option for unlimited Moët & Chandon Champagne and this lavish brunch truly becomes a top-notch experience for everyone, especially those with the most discerning of palates. Sunday, noon to 3 p.m.
The extravagant Sunday brunch at Ferdinand’s, at The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort & Spa, has been popular with locals and tourists alike for many years — and for good reason. With the resort’s stylish yet laid-back setting and the world-famous Seven Mile Beach as your backdrop, you can dine inside the restaurant or on the patio as you enjoy mouth-watering food from a wide variety of food options.
This includes the Seven Mile salad bar, breakfast station with all the classics, custom pasta bar, delicious homemade soups, charcuterie and artisanal cheese board, stir-fry station, succulent meats from the carving station, dim sum station, fresh seafood and sushi bar, and delicious dessert station. There’s even a dedicated margarita bar. Paired with optional Marquis de la Tour sparkling wine or Oyster Bay sauvignon blanc, you may never want the afternoon to end. Sunday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
