Waterloo | Louisville

Up next is Louisville’s very own Waterloo. Located right on Main Street, Waterloo offers a fun atmosphere with great food, drinks, and music — and all on their beautiful, outdoor rooftop patio. 

Their brunch is offered every Sunday from 11 am to 2 pm featuring Texas-inspired dishes. You’ll definitely want to prepare for a boozy brunch with drinks ranging from their “Corpse Reviver,” “Rosé Paloma” and classic “Bloody Mary.”

Not drinking at brunch? No problem! With biscuits and gravy, chicken fried steak, avocado toast, bananas foster french toast, and classic breakfast tacos, you’ll find something that hits the spot (while paying tribute to Johnny Cash).
