You’ve heard of Sunday Funday. And maybe you’re familiar with brunch-only restaurants. But how about a food festival dedicated entirely to the unofficial meal of Austin?

The inaugural ATX Brunch Fest takes place on March 3 (a Sunday, naturally) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Palm Door (508 E. Sixth St.)

The current lineup of restaurants includes Bougie’s Donuts & Coffee, Cane Rosso, Hudson’s Hill Country, Mia Italian Tapas & Bar, Pacha Organic Cafe, Pink Avocado Catering and more.

Organizers are teasing menu items such as chicken and waffles, cast-iron challa bread, eggs Benedict, cake-hole donuts, breakfast pizza, banh mi grits and more.

Tickets cost $25, with $50 VIP tickets granting early entry and access to a build-your-own-bagel bar from Nervous Charlie’s. Drinks are not included in the ticket price.
