Let's conclude Hangover Power Hour 2013 with a map of the best hungover brunch spots in town. Remember that the booze doesn't start flowing until 12:30 p.m. on Sundays, so brunch cocktails may be out of the question, but the food at these thirteen hangover-eradicating restaurants will get you back into tip-top shape faster than you downed those Fernet shots last night.

1. Home Grown

968 Memorial Dr. SE
Atlanta, GA 30317
It's hard to go wrong with Home Grown's brunch. Most people recommend the comfy chicken biscuit, but Nate Shuman of Proof & Provision says they also have fantastic vegetables, like steamed cabbage.

2. Ria's Bluebird

A brunch map couldn't exist without Ria's Bluebird. Chef Hector Santiago says, "I always have the same thing: a short stack, some fried eggs over easy, some bacon, and I’m good to go. They have good coffee, too— I have a couple macchiatos and I'm set."

3. Holeman & Finch Public House

Copy Link
2277 Peachtree Rd. NE
Atlanta, GA 30309
(404) 948-1175
Visit Website
It's no surprise that Holeman & Finch is pretty damn good at everything they do. The team's morning menu is no different, but the secret is that the otherwise super-limited 10 p.m. burger is sold all through Sunday brunch.

4. Sun in My Belly

Copy Link
2161 College Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30317
(404) 370-1088
Visit Website
The key to brunch at Sun in My Belly is to get any kind of egg and cheese dish. Try it scrambled with herbed boursin or omelet-style with pimento. There's also a menu item called the Hangover, so, you know, how can you go wrong?

5. Gato

1660 McLendon Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30307
(404) 371-0889

Right across the street from the Flying Biscuit in Candler Park is Gato, which offers a brunch menu that many consider superior and one that usually doesn't include a thirty-minute weekend wait time.

6. Victory Sandwich Bar

Copy Link
340 Church St
Decatur, GA 30030
(404) 377-9300
$4 sandwiches, Jack and Coke slushies, and now brunch? The meal launched at Victory Sandwich Bar last Sunday. We've heard the sausage gravy is at the top of its game.

7. The Pinewood Tippling Room

Copy Link
254 W Ponce de Leon Ave
Decatur, GA 30030
(404) 373-5507
Visit Website
Brunch at The Pinewood: chicken and waffles, crispy pork belly confit and eggs with grits, bourbon custard French toast, huevos rancheros, and so much more.

8. Manuel's Tavern

602 N. Highland Ave. NE
Atlanta, GA 30307
(404) 525-3447

Miles Macquarrie from Kimball House says, "A French dip with fries and a beer at Manuel's Tavern is one of my favorite hangover cures."

9. The Family Dog

Copy Link
1402 N Highland Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30306
(404) 249-0180
Visit Website
The Family Dog's brunch menu is a little more casual than that of sister breakfast mainstay Rosebud across the street. Get catfish and grits, sausage and egg breakfast bruschetta, or hasbrown casserole. Round out your meal with a morning Negroni or a bloody Mary and Guinness Float.

10. Lee's Bakery

Copy Link
4005 Buford Hwy NE
Atlanta, GA 30345
(404) 728-1008
Visit Website
Top bartender Arianne Fielder likes to get pho and Vietnamese coffee from Lee's Bakery when she's hungover. They also have good, cheap banh mi sandwiches.

11. Rise-n-Dine

Copy Link
1565 N Decatur Rd NE
Atlanta, GA 30307
(404) 377-4407
Visit Website
Nestled in cozy Emory Village is Rise-n-Dine, a casual and often crowded breakfast joint with great service and food. Try the breakfast tacos, or build your own omelet using the usual toppings or outliers like pierogies.

12. West Egg Cafe

Copy Link
1100 Howell Mill Rd NW
Atlanta, GA 30318
(404) 872-3973
Visit Website
West Egg doesn't take reservations, so the wait is usually pretty long. The food and atmosphere are worth it, though, so grab a cocktail while you wait (if it's after 12:30, that is). On the other side of town? Sister restaurant The General Muir shouldn't be missed, either.

13. Highland Bakery

Copy Link
655 Highland Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30312
(404) 586-0772
Visit Website
The breakfast sandwiches, egg dishes, and peanut butter french toast at Highland Bakery are great, but the real hangover cure is the jalapeno cheddar focaccia. Add a side of it to any meal and you'll be good to go.
