Roots and Revelry is a top brunch choice if you dig an elegant, yet casual dining style and a menu rich in local and seasonal ingredients.

On the menu, you’ll find a mix of brunch classics with a Roots & Revelry twist.


Start of your meal with an appetizer like avocado toast made with lime, cilantro, quest fresco, pickled onion and olive oil ($8), or the macadamia beignets with cardamom, orange zest, cinnamon and raspberry cream ($7).

You’ll find lines out the door at this popular dive in Downtown Birmingham. Here’s why:


  • Meals are home-cooked and made fresh and from scratch.
  • Ingredients are high quality.
  • There are lots of gluten free options available.

My favorite reason: it’s mmm, mmm, good!

On the menu, you’ll find everything from omelettes and shrimp and grits to pancakes and biscuits.

The winning menu item at Yo Mama’s, though, is the chicken and waffles.
