Lazy weekend brunches at home are just one of the many joys of summer. It's the season for brunch spreads with a lighter twist that embrace all the ripe produce that's piled high at the farmers market. If you're hosting a brunch this summer, we've got you covered with some great seasonal drinks to sip on, plus sweet and savory mains that will win over the whole table. From caprese quiche and strawberry swirly buns, to mini pancake tacos and watermelon mimosas, here are 20 easy-to-pull-off recipes for a fresh and fancy summer brunch.

Savory Brunch Mains

Now that summer's in full swing, you'll want lightened-up brunch options to match the season. These savory crowd favorites draw on seasonal veggies to keep casseroles, quiches, and frittatas feeling fresh and packed with summer flavor.

Sweet Brunch Dishes

Every brunch spread deserves something sweet. These options (some with make-ahead potential!) are easy to pull together yet feel oh so fancy.

Fresh Fruit Salads

There is no better way to take advantage of the abundance of fresh fruit piling up at the market than with an ultra-fragrant fruit salad at the center of your brunch spread.

Drinks

Summer brunch deserves to be paired with something fruity and bubbly, and these the drinks are right on the money. They're easy to stir together, and keep things light and refreshing by pulling lots of flavor from the fresh fruits of the moment.
