Brunch becomes more popular each year, and with its growth comes a variety of creative brunch spots popping up across the state. A growing list of restaurants are serving brunch—some even making it the focus of their expertise. So, you might be asking yourself this: Where is the best brunch in NJ?

In the heart of Somerville, NJ, Brunch By De Martino beckons guests to indulge in some of Somerset County’s best brunch. The inviting BYOB is a haven for brunch enthusiasts. It was even named earlier this year as one of New Jersey’s best brunch spots, topping the Central Jersey portion of the list. 

What sets De Martino apart is their ingenious infusion of Latin flavors into each bite. Dishes like the bacon guava jam avocado toast marry sweet and savory flavors through fusion in the best way possible. From dawn until midday, Brunch By De Martino is serving up some of your favorite breakfast and lunch staples—all infused with their signature Latin flair. Whether your heart yearns for a sweet option such as the peaches and cream french toast, or craves a savory creation, like the salsa verde chilaquiles, De Martino has curated a selection that leaves no palate unsatisfied.

As you step into De Martino, you’re not just entering a restaurant—you’re stepping into a world where the love for food and the joy of sharing it converge. And the best part? De Martino embraces the BYOB culture, inviting you to bring your favorite bottle to complement the feast before you. De Martino employs plenty of mixing options for your preferred alcohol. Try any of their four mimosa options, or opt for something a tad more adventurous like the sparkling cucumber daisy or the Mexican mojito, which combines muddled mint and lime with Mexican Coca-Cola—great on its own as a non-alcoholic option or mixed with your favorite bottle. 

Chef Martino continues to find creative ways to improve the brunch menu. One crowd favorite is the tres leches French toast. Utilizing Chef Martino’s signature tres leches batter, he soaks brioche bread, making for a sweet and decadent French toast that people travel to try. It keeps the same theme as the classic version but is improved by a Latin touch. 

What’s more, an eggs Benedict menu features four varieties of brunch staples. The “Jersey Benny” includes Taylor Ham, cheddar cheese, poached eggs and, of course, hollandaise sauce to blanket it all. Many opt for sandwiches when enjoying brunch, and Brunch By De Martino does not disappoint in this regard. A Mexican chicken milanesa torta or Cubano sandwich are both popular options, but we can’t get enough of the short rib grilled cheese—which includes four-hour braised short ribs, Swiss and gouda cheese, served with creamy tomato soup and fries on the side. It’s savory, filling and delicious. 

In a world with an increasing number of outstanding brunch options, Brunch By De Martino in Somerville, NJ still stands out as an exceptional choice. Diners flock to this exceptional BYOB for the cleverly constructed experience from as far as Philly and NYC; many dishes feature a touch of Latin flair. Don’t look past Brunch By De Martino for the best brunch in NJ.
